Allan, after seeing Larry's (Ozarkshome) 600mm lens this past weekend, I can understand your desire. All I can say is keep saving and one will surely come your way.

Gale,
I have the 500 afs 1, which I use practically all the time with the 1.4. Great lens, but all winter I wished I had more reach- eagles, other raptors, duck. The New England birds stay farther away than their Florida cousins.

Well, think about this: 300 2.8 with TC 1.4 is 420 at f4.0. Now factor the digital crop and now you have 630 at f4.0 with VR too... I guess that is not what you had in mind...

I'd want to wait for the VR version - should be out ANYTIME soon now :smile:

Andy
A serious question... Why would a VR be important since you'll be putting the 600mm f/4 on a stable tripod + gimbal head?

Yes, I lust for the 600mm f/4 + 1.4x TC. :biggrin:

I know you do Allan, I was just kidding. Andrew, get the 300VR if you can swing the funds. I did and it is great..
