Went ahead and ordered it!
In reply to familypast, Apr 24, 2013

So, I went ahead and ordered the 300mm f/4 af-s.  I originally thought about renting it for a couple of weeks just to be safe, but given the high resale value, I figure I can always resell it later if things don't work out--without taking a big hit.

I also plan on purchasing a 1.4 TC in the next day or so, but I'm still trying to figure out if the Nikon TC14 is really worth its premium price over the Kenko, Sigma and other alternatives.

Thanks again for all your help!  I agree with those of you who said that technique is everything, especially for this lens, so this rookie is definitely going to need a lot of practice.
