Thanks for making it LOUD and CLEAR ;)

I like your comments everytime one of these 2499$ sales comes.  ;D

None of these cameras will come with "light leak" :P

You can already reach 400mm so only you know whether you need 600mm.

I do believe though that unless you intend to sell your excellent 400mm 2.8L IS II the choice of 600mm is obvious.

You already have 400mm...

If you are going to carry something expensive and heavy get the 600mm...

Tron, my 400mm f2.8 IS II "ain't gonna go no where"  ;)

This 600mmish will mainly be used for BIF and surfing. Speed & reach are important. Summer is right around the corner and I live 10mins away from: http://www.huntingtonbeachca.gov/

However, to have high quality long zoom lens is also important in many cases... ::)

A few months ago I had to make the same choice and I picked the 200-400/1.4x.  I do not regret this choice.

Ultimately it really boils down to what you like to photograph.  I use this lens for a wide variety or purposes - wildlife, sports, and landscapes.  For these purposes there is no contest - the 200-400 is the best lens that can achieve all three.

If I were only photographing wildlife, or more specifically birds, then the 600/II would be the better choice.  You simply need as much length as possible.  If an 800/4 existed that was actually portable, I would recommend that.  That being said, you can certainly accomplish a lot with 560mm.

For a real world example see this set http://www.flickr.com/photos/calevphoto/sets/72157641149672084/  Three of these images were taken at 560mm, but three were not.  The versatility of the 200-400 certainly wins out here.

For sports I almost never use the extender.  I also find myself switching a lot between 200mm and 400mm.  It is one case where a zoom is invaluable.

Finally for landscapes I am all over the place.  That was really the deciding factor for me.  I wanted a lens I can use for landscapes to catch the shots many landscape photographers miss.  For these I rarely shoot at 560mm. 

This set illustrates the flexibility - http://www.flickr.com/photos/calevphoto/sets/72157640572094314/  Most of the landscape shots were not taken at 560mm, while most of the close up bird shots were.  A 600/4 would have probably done an even better job, but the 200-400 certainly did a very good job.

Someday I may pick up a 600/II if I have a sudden influx of cash, but it is not a huge priority given the excellent performance of the 200-400 at 560mm already.

BTW, the Tamron is a very nice lens, but the 600/II and 200-400 are in a completely different class.  There are vast differences in AF speed, image quality, and the extras that go into a top end lens.

Thanks kirispupis for your feedbacks and photos ;)

I recently bought 400m f2.8 IS II - mainly for indoor swimming and ballet. All  I can say is AWESOME and now going for bit longer for outdoor activities ;)

OK here is my little video, just like the other couple I have done for the forum please forgive the sound and production qualities, I am a stills shooter  :D

I realise I didn't do a perfect job but you can see the concept and the important bit, shoot a test plain background and make a custom preset, then it is just one click away. Or, send me a RAW file of a plain grey card and I will make you one.

Edit: Redid the vid with a slightly better sound and video, here is the new link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jrvm5477wz423i9/Sony%2010-18%20copy.mov

Thanks privatebydesign for the tips ;)

Do you use Lightroom or Photoshop? I'll make one, but if this is a consistent issue I'd get the camera looked at.

I have LR5. The color issue only happen on Sony 10-18mm,which designed for crop. With native Zeiss FE 55, I have no issue.

Thanks in advance :)

The 600 II, because I often need all the focal length I can get.  The 600 II is sharper at 840mm f/5.6 than the 200-400+1.4x at 560mm f/5.6 (link). 

I bought my 600 II before the 200-400+1.4x came out, but I'd make the same choice today.

Thanks Neuro :)

He doesn't know how to smile...

Life in Prison will do that to you I'm told   ::)

Nice shots Dylan777, haven't traded that 400f/2.8 II for a 200-400f4 yet ??

Thanks eml58,

I still like my 400mm very much :). There is time, I wish I have that 200-400 zoomy ::)

I had that dilemma too - get the 400 2.8 or the 200-400 zoom. Versatility vs extra stop of light - nice problem to have mind you.

For me using two bodies was the solution as I wanted a faster lens - 400 on one body and 70-200 when action gets closer :)

Love it!

For me, it's all about IQ - here is JPEG, minor adjustments here and there. Less than 30second in LR5.

I'm working on 600mm f4 II
