I've had both the 400 and 300 lens, there just isn't that much more reach with the 400 compared to the 300, I think you'd see a difference in the 300 to 500. I still have my 300, the 400 was just too heavy to be practical without always using a tripod or monopod. If you want to know what it feels like, get something unwieldy that weighs 8 1/2lbs and wander around in the wild with it. I can manage the weight of the 300 and 500 without support but wouldn't want to do it all day, the 400 was unmanageable. IQ from the 400 is excellent.
