Good point

This is a good consideration. I would also add that if you ever plan on switching to a 500 or 600 you may find that you will miss the 300. This happened to me. I just sold my 400 f/2.8 to get the 500 f/4 and I'm wishing I kept my 300 f/2.8. Oh well.

Another thing, the 300 is something you can handhold. You'd have to be a barbarian to handhold the 400 f/2.8 for any length of time. So, if freedom of movement is important you may find more of a use for the 300 than you might think.

Do you ever use the 300/2.8 without the TC? If so, then you'll
likely still use it in addition to the 400/2.8. If not, then it will
be redundant with the new 400.

I currently use the 2.8L 300mm IS with 1.4 TC's....Poor boys 400mm if
you will. I've been wanting to purchase the 2.8L 400 IS and am
wondering if keeping the 300 is a good idea or will it just become a
dust collector?
