Are you still getting a 200-600? I've returned mine and replaced with the FE 100-400, again! 200-600, too big!!!!!!!!!

I've had the 200-600 for some time. Unless I need the reach I will use the 100-400 - much nicer to use for extended periods.  Most of the swallows are shot at f8 so even with the TC1.4 on it is fine for BIF if you need a bit more reach. It's been a complete game changer for small fast bif for me.

There are still times when it is useful @840mm so I won't be getting rid of it - I want to try out the TC2.0  to see if that is better than cropping. These are not really what I would call satisfactory.  I seem to be able to get pretty decent images even at iso12800 as long as the subject has enough pixels on it.  DxO PhotoLab does an outstanding job.
