Thanks for looking and commenting Chris! Sorry, thanks for the heads up, forgot to put the length on there!(updated now) but they were all 500mm

I was borrowing the lens from a friend and now I am really torn as to what to buy/save up for!

I currently only have a 70-200/2.8 and I use it with my 1.7xTC, which is sharp as heck, but is really too short for wildlife. I have all sorts of thoughts on a longer lens and would love to get peoples thoughts!
current thoughts/choices:
all with my D7000
Sigma 150-500- good deal but pretty slow, so wonder how it would work in anything less than bright conditions?? Too wide of DOF with smaller subjects? I have seen others using this with their D800 and creating fabulous images, but wonder if my D7K can compete?

Nikon 300/f4 Little more money,but faster and sharper, could use 1.4 and possibly 1.7x TC's. basically same length as sigma with 1.7 but actually 1/3 stop slower...but probably sharper, but enough for the $500 additional??? Better resale though...

Then there is a big jump in cost to the next level and not sure I can justify that jump right now! BUT I have a friend who wants to offload his older 500/f4 Ai-S, choices, choices...

What I need is some paid shoots to help tilt the scales!
