I read with delight of your view on the 200-400 f/4.
From your writing, I gather that you like the 600 prime + 2X iii, and can you describe the weight and dimensions of these two lenses? I went to B and H in May and they did not have the 200-400 then, so I wasn't able to try them out side by side.
I would like to hear of your trips with your collection of gear, particularly the 200-400 on airplanes.
My *Minister of Finance* has allocated funds for this lens and I am waiting to see if there may be a sales happening in the next few months as there is a plan to travel to The Land of the Kiwi in late 2014.
I look forward to hearing your view on these!
I'm not a fan of the idea "or this, or that." The combination of zooms and primes gives you more flexibility, depending on the type of photo. Indeed, in works of great responsibility, I always carry two bodies. One with a F2.8 zoom and flash, and other with F1.4 prime. If you shoot in the studio only, makes sense to abandon zoom lenses. Otherwise, your second option is safer for times when you do not have total control over people or objects.
Why would you buy a 44mp camera to shoot 4K video? Seems like overkill or is there an advantage I'm missing?
You are choosing too low a value in quality at your save as jpeg step.
It is called posterization and is very common, it has nothing to do with camera settings or your other processing. Do it again but save the jpeg at over 80% quality, sometimes you even need to use 100%.
