What ever else it can do, its going to have to better 1200mm ie verses the 600mm mark 2 and 2x tc mark 3 combination, and without using a Kenko tc to maintain AF

That ain't going to be easy, and anyone who shoots long telephotos normally does so for the maximum focal length, the mark 3 tc being superb  on the  mark 2 primes

It may well be a case of 600mm out performing the 800mm on focal length with AF, so its a no brainer, that is of course unless its significantly lighter and smaller, in which case it may have an advantage for some shooters
