Hi Alan,

Never tried any of them, but the 50/500 seems to have better critics than the other. (You can try www.fredmiranda.com).

As can option (and since you already have a 2X TC) you could think of the Canon 300 f4L IS. The IQ is superb, even with a TC (I normally use with a 1.4X).

Regards,
Carlos
