Looking for some advice as I'm planning on upgrading in this focal range. Looking at the 70-200/2.8 and the 70-200/4. Had been planning on buying the 2.8 version, but a bit concerned about the weight and carrying it around on trips. Plan on using either one of these with a teleconverter (thinking TC-17e) ... as I want to get some additional range. So concerned about using the F4 version with the teleconverter ... how good does it work? And i also like tripod shooting, so wondering for the 2.8 version, do i need to mount the lens on the tripod foot (meaning i'd have to buy an additional connector for my RRS ballhead), or can i mount the camera (D800) to the tripod as I've always done? Have a Gitzo 25xx CF tripod with a RRS RH40 ballhead.

Thanks for the help.
