The bare 300f4 is always sharper than the 70-200f2.8+1.7TC (340mm). For maximum reach and excellent photo quality the 300f4+1.7 =500f6.7. It is the best affordable, portable 500mm setup available. That being said, I use the 70-200f2.8+1.7TC when VR is required, ie: in a boat or kayak photographing whales. You should own both lenses, one will not replace the other.
