Ken,

Even 400mm isn't enough these day. I've considered getting one of the Sigma zooms but have since dropped that idea. From what I've read they degrade somewhat after 400mm.

Here a shot I just took. The sun was nearly set which is why the red cast. I used my 80-400mm with the Kenko Pro 300 1.4X extender making it 560mm at f8.

Here is the full frame from the D3X with the lens wide open.

Not the best photo or lighting but It gives you the idea. I was about 30 feet from the bird.
