Saw this deal mentioned over on Ken Rockwell's site.  At Adorama, the 800mm super lens is available for a mere $13,249 which is the same as places like Amazon but Adorama is throwing into the deal a $1000 gift card and a $10 software package.

So, Neuroanatomist, have you got your 800mm yet?  ;D

There's no point - the 600 II + 1.4xIII (which I do have) delivers 840mm f/5.6 that's physically lighter and has better IQ than the 800/5.6.  Similarly, the 600 II + 2xIII is longer, lighter, and has better IQ than the 800 + 1.4x.

It's not surprising that Adorama (and others) are having trouble selling the 800L.

Why?  Just get a D800E and shoot with a 50mm lens.  You can crop to the same FOV of a Canon 1Dx with an 800 f/5.6L and get higher IQ and higher DR.
