Swapping Nikon 300/4 and Sigma 500/4.5 for Nikon 200-400?
Sep 19, 2012

I'm thinking of replacing my Nikon 300/4 AFS and Sigma 500/4.5 with a Nikon 200-400 VR1.

I sometimes hike or kayak several miles in search of nature shots, mostly birds, but will shoot anything that catches my eye.

I usually carry 2 D300's - one with the 500 and one with the 300 mounted. I also keep a 150 macro on me in case a suitable shot presents itself.

I'm thinking the 200-400, with or without my 1.4 TC can do the job of both of the other lenses, and perhaps get some shots that I miss when switching cameras.

I can't think of any drawbacks to this switch. Am I missing anything?
