Much cheaper to put an EF400 f5.6 on a Canon 1.6 crop body and crop to 12mp

I can shoot handheld down to 1/125 sec in low light with the 400 f5.6 with confidence (shoot bursts and cherry pick the best).

The 300 f2.8L IS (even Mk I) will give you more capability though (but you have to be able to handle the extra weight of course).
