The 200-400 is versatile, but f4 (or actually I think it is a t5.x something) is really slow for sports.   You give up 1.5 stops vs a good f2.8 lens.  Think about it.  I'm not saying its the right decision to give up your 200-400mm, there are other factors, but if you really want low light capability keep in mind you are giving away more than a stop using that lens.
