Who likes their 400mm E FL over having a 300mm 2.8 or 500mm E FL? I've got lens lust for a 400mm 2.8 E FL and have the opportunity to buy one used. Trouble is I would have to give up my other 2 lenses to get there. How heavy is it? I can carry my 300mm or 500mm all day if needed. The 400mm is a little heavier but I'm not sure how much. I can use a strap and monopod but not sure how practical it is with this lens.

I have a 400e and a 500e. The 400e is amazing at 2.8 for sports. The 500e is amazing for wildlife. I don't like TCs.
The 400e is so much better than the 400g, lighter and way better balance and only 1 hood. The 400e and g both take the 1.4 and 1.7 extremely well and they do ok with the 2x V3
