MVAsteve:The 400mm L f5.6 runs about $1,100. Primes in general are sharper than zooms. You sacrifice flexibility, though. I've done a lot of shooting with the 400mm L f2.8, and love it. My go-to L for nature work, the 100-400 image stabiliizer, is just a little less sharp than the 400 f5.6 when the 100-400 is shot wide open. When I shoot it stopped down one stop at 400mm to f8, it's just as sharp as the 400 f5.6. The 100-400 runs about $1,300. The 400 f5.6 also is not an image stabilized lens. You'll need a solid tripod to get best results with it, or for sure some other type of solid rest for the lens under most conditions.
