Honestly I would stay away from the 100-400, it has an outdated IS unit and is too big. But I highly recommend the 40-150 f/2.8 pro because it's cheaper, brighter, has better built quality and can also do telemacro. If you want more reach you can buy an extender, 1,4X or 2,0X, or buy an additional 75-300 for the supertelephoto. I always recommend the 75-300 because it's cheap, gives very good sharpness at close distance even at 300mm. It falls apart at 300mm when shooting distant subjects, but this also holds true for the 100-400.
