If they can keep it relatively affordable they will sell a gazillion of these too!

True! Photographers would make excellent snipers...

Except a dSLR doesn't have much recoil...
And a 1Dx and that 600, combined weigh more than any target rifle that I have ever owned or shot....but the technique suggestion is a good one, but not always possible due to the unpredictability of animals....

I have rented the 800 but bought the new 600 about a year ago...a better lens IMHO, and with the 1.4 extender a bigger  lens as well...I did NOT like the results that I got with the 800 and the 1.4 III extender either....softened the pictures too much.....

Sell the 400 and and keep the 600...a no brainer if you are a wildlife shooter....

Get a good monopod.....if you are strong enough to hand hold this lens then you are one strong dude.  I agree with the shutter speed comment.  Faster is better, and for the very best pictures use a good tri-pod with a good gimbal head on it...but this lens is the real deal...sharp as hell even with the 1.4 extender!!  I love mine!!

mine was shipped today...took about 3-4 weeks....I suspect that once the backorders are all filled that it will be a normal in-stock lens at the big retailers, just like the 300, 400,500,600 and 800 mm lenses are now.

My original question had more to do with why these lenses seem to be so slow in reaching the dealers.  I realize that those who have pre-paid, or put down a deposit get the first ones that arrive, but once again it seems like this lens is really just dribbling in because I have not found any dealer, anywhere, who seems to be getting this lens delivered in any numbers at all....that was my question.....I appreciate the responses though.,
