You should try the 300f4L with the canon 2x tc to give 600 f8 780 full frame equivalent its not a bad combo on a 1d af is respectable with the center point too you just need lots of light
I've been seriously considering replacing my 7D with a 1DIV. It's less than half the cost of a 500/4 II to put on the 1D X, and even though a gripped 7D won't go for much on the used market, what I'd get for it, added to the cash on hand in my gear fund, would cover an LN-/EX+ 1DIV...
That actually would be the best replacement purchase scenario I can imagine. The 1D4 for the 7D would be incredibly smart and worthwhile. Not that the 7D is a bad camera, it's just you get the incredible features of the 1D4 along with the 1.3x factor. That's one of the main reasons the 1D4 is in my kit. I like that crop factor and 1D body metering capabilities.
