Definitely the 600 f4...

As long as you don't mind the weight and will put it on a 5 series Gitzo (or equivalent). It is slightly sharper than the 500 f4 VR and is a pretty good deal at the price. I'm waiting for Nikon to do an FL VR update which should be lighter and sharper - but more money. In the interim my 17 year old 500 f4 AF-S is a pretty good match for my D7100 and D300s.
