Nikon 300f4 vs Nikon 300 f4 PF vs Sigma 120-300 f2.8

i currently shoot sports and wildlife with a Nikon 300f4 lens and a Sigma 150-600Sport.   I love the IQ and th size of Nikon 300f4 over the sport but don’t have the versatility.  Also I can get more reach with the 300 f4.

Ive been looking at the 300 PF and reading reviews and most reviews say it’s a tad under the 300f2.8

Amother lens that I have looked at and rented is the Sigma 120-300 f2.8.  Gets the versatility back but is a huge lens.


1.  How does IQ of 300f4 compare in IQ focus speeds and IQ?

2. Can I use a Nikon 1.4 version2 teleconverter with the PF? Version 3 will not work with 300 f4.

3. How well does a 2.0teleconverter work?

4.  Is their any difference in bokeh?

5. Depth of field?
