Thanks, I'll probably swap for the 70-300 at some point. I don't do any serious birding, and when I do it seems 400 isn't enough anyway... the weight savings of the 70-300 is probably what's most attractive...

I have both. I really love the 100-400 for birding and sometimes for other things, but for non-birding the 70-300 is actually extremely nice and is a good FL....lightweight as can be, quiet focus, great images. I can't really complain much about it and even though I have the 100-400, I wouldn't give up the 70-300. It's so easy to carry around...

There's a major weight difference for sure!  The 70-300 is even lighter than a lot of much shorter lenses!
