I think the answer also has to do with if you are going to keep of sell the 300/2.8. if you were to keep that then get the 500 for sure.

I went the 400/2.8G but ended up ordering the 600E about a month ago (still not received) as I mainly shoot birds and we do not have much in the way of larger animals here in Oz.

The 400 is an amazing lens but if you're still cropping and searching for reach get the longer one.
