Non-existent lens, so filter question is superfluous.

Here is a comparison of the 200-400 mtfs at 400mm and 560mm with the f/2.8 300mm II + 1.4x TC at 420 mm, and the f/2.8 400mm II prime, and then the 200-400mm at 560mm with TC, the 300mm at 600mm with 2xTC, and the 400mm prime with 1.4x TC. I'll stick with the 300mm + TCs as the 200-400 is too heavy for me as well as too pricey. All these lenses seriously outgun the 100-400mm f/5.6, and you see it quite easily in the resolution of detail when you compare them in practice.
Here is an example of using the 8-15mm Fisheye I took. Although I did use a long exposure to get star trails. Hopefully it is still informative for you.
I also have used the TS-E 24mm II for astrophotography and have quite enjoyed it, however I can definitely understand wanting the EF 24mm 1.4 opposed to it for that specific use. Here is an example although I do not have any Milky Way shots with the 24mm.
Ive got one and can testify how good they are. Only problem I have is they put a cool blue cast on the pics. Otherwise, the best filters around. Good luck with the big stopper, youll love them but getting the timing right is a bit hit or miss.
Where are you managing to buy Really Right Stuff from in Europe Charl? (I understand you reside in Sweden currently kind sir!)
Dear Sir or Madam,
there are quite a few shops which import the most excellent RRS parts. I can only speak for Germany, but I have been very satisfied with an online shop called 'augenblicke-eingefangen'. It takes a while until your highly desired toys arrive, but the packaging is very good and shock-resistant.
