Re: 400mm f4 Anyone? +D800 :)

The first time I spotted someone using the Canon 400 f4 I though WOW how cool is that!! after checking the price online I decided to stick the 300 and 1.4x

I am NOT a fan of tele converters but my 300 2.8 AFS (non VR) and 1.4x are insanely sharp.. I do not hesitate to shoot that combo wide open (something I would not do with the 400 and 1.4)

Don't forget, though, Canon 400/4 is $6,000. You can practically buy Nikkor 300/2.8 + 1.4x TC for that money.. It's certainly an option.
