Good comments. My first " proper " big lens was a 400mm f3.5, and, after a while, I realised it was too short. The 600mm f4 manual focus was too heavy for motorsport, so, I ended up with a 500mm f4P ( the first Nikon 500mm lens with a chip). That lens was a nice weight, and easy to hand hold.
After a while, I realised the 500mm lens was too short, so, purchased an 800mm f5.6, which I still have.
I also purchased a 300mm f2.8 AF-S ( silent wave motor).
So, with 300mm f2.8 AF-S, 500mm F4 (now upgraded to AF-I model ), and 800mm f5.6, that's all I need. I would like the new 800mm f5.6 AF-S, but, as I am not shooting motor sport any more, I will pass on it.
Add the Nikon TC14E to the 300mm f2.8, and 500mm f4, I am covered for all focal lengths. I do have the TC17E ( its OK), and a TC20E ( that particular model wasn't any good). I understand the new TC20E MK xyz is OK. :-)
