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.

Yes, you're right.  I'd like to get a camera good at high ISO and then evaluate how I'm doing with the 200-400 and look at that issue then.
