I'd like to see you go from 300 to 400 in less than 2 seconds!

LOL, that moon isn't going very far in two seconds!

You read a lot of crap about the 100-400 but its usually by people who don't own one.

I own both primes and shoot with the 1-4 on a regular basis (a great copy BTW), so what I've posted is not CRAP.

The zoom is a Very fun lens (still on my own short list), but the primes are simply sharper, faster, and better focusing.  I almost always prefer the greater capabilities vs the convenience (for what I shoot).

So you shoot with a 100-400? Do you own one?
