Eml58,
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!
Thanks.

I travel with big lenses all the time. I put the lens in a soft case and then put the soft case in a hard top suitcase and check it in. No problems so far.

I'm not a fan of the idea "or this, or that." :-X 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.

yep

Thank you Elm for posting your lovely photos. I am in Thailand currently on work and my other photos from this lens are in my main computer at office. Will post after a month when I return.

Why would you buy a 44mp camera to shoot 4K video?  Seems like overkill or is there an advantage I'm missing?

Dont know. Never done that before.

Agree with you Sella. Entirely, Totally. But there will be more coming here and things will keep improving.

Would they not need to manufacture whole lot of new lenses of MF?
Possibly they are buying of some MF company...

BUT one question remains a mystery: When I upload all three pictures after reducing sizes almost exactly, why does the processed photo show degradation?

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%.

Thx for your prompt reply. :)
I saved the jpeg at 75% quality.
I have attached another photo with less processing and the problem seems to be reduced. This new photo was saved at same - 75% quality.
THX.
