Bob,

I bought the Wimberley replacement foot for the 400 2.8 which has a much lower profile than the standard foot, and it fits very nicely with body attached in the Photo Trekker that Lowe makes. I've flown to Alaska and New Zealand with this setup and it works well.

The 500mm f/4 is smaller than a 400mm f/4.8 if I'm not wrong. The 400mm f/2.8 is about the same size and weight as the 600mm f/4. So you should not worry about the 500mm f/4 but rather the 400mm f/2.8 ! :biggrin:

I know of only two lens cases that can fit the 600mm f/4 with a D2 body series attached. Kinesis L621 long lens case and the Lowepro 600AW. If you're interested to get a backpack type of solution or if you have other gears to carry, the Lowepro Super Trekker AW II is the one.
