why don't you, for the price of the more expensive 400mm lenses just get a DX camera and put a FX 300 on it?

Yeah :/

If the budget allows i suggest the Sigma 70-200 f2.8 plus the 1.4 tc should come in at just under £1000. Going for the prime lens is one heck of a lot more. Also suggest a good google search to see who are doing deals here in the UK. Possible on a 0% deal somewhere? It is down to what you can afford to be spending.

But Miss already has a 70-300 and wants more reach...the 200 with a 1.4 only reaches to 280...Thus the discussion of the 80-400 and other lenses vs. the TC...

my idea was based on an assumption that missy is not using a FX camera there for at 200 with 1.4 equals 420 there for making the 70-200 a reasonable purchase within a reasonable budget. A little thought was put into the reply not a foot in mouth reply

Same DX benefit with the existing 70-300...the 1.4 on the 200 still won't beat the existing 300...that all I was saying - didn't mean to cause an issue...
