You make an excellent point discussing the redundancy.  Not sure if using the 2X extender on the 70-200 would degrade the picture quality more than using the 80-400 with no extender though.  I am leaning towards using the 300 2.8 with an teleconverter for one camera and just having the 70-200 with no teleconverter on the second camera.   I have heard that the 200-400 does not take teleconverters well but you may have had a different experience.   You also make a good point about the low light performance of the ff.  Lots to think about.

I'm very excited about going.

thanks again for your comments.


I used the 70-200 with the 2.0 TC on my last trip to Kenya with excellent results. You can see them on my site

I used the 1.4 on the 200-400 regularly again with good results. I would estimate that 85% of my captures were at focal lengths of 400mm or less.
