New Lens or New Body first? 300 2.8 IS or MK IV

I can only spend this much money once this year, maybe for two years lol.
I sold my canon 1D II N and 5D camera bodies and need a new one.
I am considering a 1D MK III or a 1D MK IV.
I also am budgeting for a 300 2.8 IS lens someday.
But, I can’t afford the MK IV that I really want if I get the lens.

I could get the 1D III and the lens, and wait a few years to get the IV.

I have a 24-70L and 100-400L to get me by and it technically does everything I need.
I just want the 300 2.8 for my birding hobby.

Since it's my hobby I can put it on hold, for the MK IV if I can talk myself into it. lol

Anyone want to help push me one way or the other on this?
