My concern with both the 400/2.8 and 600/4 would be weight. At least a 500/4 is a little easier to manoeuver and could be hand held the odd time.

I do like 400/2.8s though! Probably the best glass of all the supertelephotos and work extremely well with teleconverters.

Your right about weight. I didn't even think about weight as I need a tripod my hands shake    without even holding a camera. I'm 84 years old.

The 400/2.8s is my dream lens, but way out of budget at my age. I have instructed my son to sell all my camera gear when I pass as he is not into photography
