Thanks for the info.

It seems daft but if I were to part exchange my 500 - to get a new MkII 500 f4 it would cost me the same as if I just bought a 300 f2.8 MkII.

So I am thinking keep the 500 f4 MkI and buy a 300 f2.8 MkII and have two lenses rather than one?

I don't disagree with the logic, but, from a practical point of view, that's a lot of glass to schlep.  That said, as someone else pointed out, that's a great dilemma to have!
