Steve.. I'm not considering a replacement for my 800mm lens. I used to shoot a lot of motorsport and in particular, motor cycles.
Last year, I suffered a stroke, and while I am now in pretty good condition, I dont bother with motor sport any more.

I'm located in Queensland in Australia. The only event I would like to shoot would be the Motor Cycle Grand Prix, but,thats 1,200 miles from me. I wanted to go to see it this year, but, the hassle of obtaining passes is too much now.It would probably take 3 days drive to get there as well. Normaly 2 days, but, maybe 3 allowing for the fact I'm not as fit as I used to be.

I have a 500mm AF-I that I purchased years ago. Its the pre-runner to the 500mm AF-S. I have a TC14E and TC17E, so, that gets me back to 800mm if required. Of course, an 800mm f5.6 and TC14E will give 1,120mm as well. The 500mm and TC14E work well.

Hopefully, this link will open for you. All with D3S and 500mm F4 AF-I
