thanks for feedback - it is very encouraging to hear good things regarding the focusing speed of the 300.

do you believe that 300 f4+TC1.4 could do motorsports?

I use the 300 f4 alone and with a 1.4 TC II.  I would really like to have the f2.8 but just cannot justify the cost.  I use it primarily for birds and wildlife .  It focuses much faster than I expected and I even get some decent BIF when used alone.  It is a great bargain at about $1100  rumor has it that the new 300 f4 will have VRIII and cost about $2300.00.  I had the Sigma 150-500 but had to shoot at 300 to 400 anyway or just could not get a sharp pic.

There are definitely better lenses out there but not at this price point.

I forgot to say that I am using it on a D600.


you are killing me with this one !!! And i thank you for you valuable and pertinent opinions.
