If you are not going to be shooting at f2.8 anyway, save some money and get the 300mm f4.  I think that it is just as sharp (I shoot birds).  There are differences in other qualities, but sharpness is not different enough for me to notice.  The 300mm f4 is an excellent lens.  I intended to sell it when I got the f2.8 but never could bring myself to do it.  It is still very sharp with the 1.4TC.
