... and I'll never understand that need. I get really sweet bokeh at f/4.

However, I DO have the 500mm f/4 and if I couldn't afford that I'd be considering a 70-200mm f/2.8 with the 1.4x and 2.0x TCs. Either that or the 300/f2.8 with the TCs.

Here's something interesting to do. Go to Flickr or Smug Mug or any searchable image database that has lens specs and EXIF. Most images taken with f/2.8 lens are shot at f/4 and smaller apertures.
