True...

There's a huge gap in price between 2 and 3, and then again 3 and 4.

840 f/9 (ff) is doable for 1500$ ish (or cheaper, if you buy used). 150-600 and 1.4x tc.

700mm f8 is likewise (native 200-500 f mount with tc)

There's really no quality difference between 2 and 3, but there is between 3 and 4.

Basically, spend bit, or spend some, but if you want good quality you're going to spend money.

True...doesn't mean the new f11 might be perfect for a number of folks

Diffraction is going to kick in at some point too with the f/11 (and narrower) lenses.

Diffraction is present at all apertures....in some cases it's not even detrimental at f22 and higher...depends on many variables
