I under exposed a shot by two stops.... and I was able to salvage it... but if I under exposed by five sips, I deserve to have an un salvageable image.

AF lenses are simply not designed to MF, trying to do it with a fast prime and standard focusing screen is an exercise in futility. But the 85 f1.2 predates AF, try the focus throw on an FD version and you will see how we managed it back in the day.
Mind if I throw in a curve ball into the mix? I've been thinking about a 200L f2. Which is a 280 f2.8... and a 400 f4...with extenders.
I too have thought about the 300mm, but the 200 seems more flexible with the added stop. Thoughts?
Size, weight and cost are about same between the two. Which is more important for you JD - reach or 1stop extra. Although I haven't try 200mm f2 with x1.4 yet, but I have feeling it can't win the bare 300mm f2.8 IS II in term of IQ.
I can do some test shots and share with you on 200mm f2 + 1.4x TC III later this week
Real classy jd, real classy.
It is particularly funny because I have been an actual licensed Dudeism minister for years and have conducted legally recognised marriages, as well as being appointed the "Arch Bishop of the Virgin Islands and Caribbean", it is great for getting flight upgrades and entrance to government functions.
So my internet friends, lets see how well you can live by your opinions, what focal length compression are you seeing in these two shots?
One from me.
BTW, how do you guys attach a link, intead of the file, like TexPhoto did above?
Hope you have some 3stop ND on hand for outdoor.
I understand your points.
Besides me, there are few more of us out there call it as "compression".

And that makes it correct? I don't see the smug satisfaction in refusing education and reveling in repeating inaccurate statements from self taught YouTube experts. But hey, have at it.........
