I'm trying to decide whether to buy the current NIKKOR 70-200 f/2.8 or the f/4.0 for use with my D4. I've considered many factors but one remaining is whether the f/4.0 is big and beefy enough for proper and convenient use with the ThinkTank HydroPhobia. I'd like to be able to work in the rain using a camera strap, with or without mono-pod or tripod, and the Hydrophobia supports that. I've read that it is desirable to be able to bunch up the Hydrophobia around the lens when it is not raining. Any experience or advice?
