A Canon pro camera with a 400 2.8 gives totally different possibilities to isolate the subject and give a tighter, more professional look. That is the professional approach, don't mind the trouble of carrying that large lens, since it is the results that earns your pay. There are lots of slower, more compact lenses in the Canon system, as I am sure you know.

Having shot with long Canon lenses, unless you like your subjects OOF, you'd need to stop down in order to get a decent DOF. Isolating the subject is rarely an issue. Getting enough of the subject in focus usually is.

The longer the FL the greater the 43 DOF advantage.
