Another way to go is to get the 400/2.8 and some TCs. 800/5.6 is then available to you for much less money. :)

Wildlife is a pretty general term.
That's true...  it could also pertain to the Kappa Alpha Gamma  girls who live across the street.     If that is the case,  get the 500mm.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

They are only good for photographing books at a distance. Otherwise get a Nikon.

The 400 II is best...if you need a 400mm lens. If you need a 300mm lens, the 300 II is best.  If you need a 50mm lens, they both suck.
