I second that. The 70-300 is awesome already. It weighs 400 grams compared to 1.2Kg of the 80-400 for only a little bit more reach, to put it into perspective.

I think I'm happy with things under 1.5kg as long as it is sharper, faster AF, and a bit more reach. But the 80-400 is still a bit on the expensive side for me hence I'm looking for cheaper combo such as AF-S 300mm f4 with teleconverter. Want to know if there are better options than that.

If you are not going to be shooting BIFs, any of the small sensor superzooms might actually be a better idea. I guess the older ones with less insane zoom range like 30x-50x can be bought very cheap used/refurbished.

I shoot BIF, and got 2 bodies already 😁
