How can you compare the best Canon Prime with extenders  to a zoom.. they perform totally differnet functions...

I have a 500F4 with 1'4 and 2x extenders and its better than the 300.... and better than the zoom but I needed a zoom... thats the point.. the 300 and the 500 perfom diifferent role to the 100-400Zoom... so they to me as a birdwatcher are not comparable in the function..they both have their place

I use the 100-400 as my mobile walk-about camera unsing a Black Mountain strap... the 500 is in a bag on my back.!! if there is a need I'll swop lenses.... But if you are mobile then buy the zoom.. if you are a static watcher get the 500 F4...

Simples...
