The modular 400mm f/4 APO is usually over $10k if you can find one.

400mm f/2.8 CaNikon?  No thanks: too big & heavy, AF, the STOOPID STOOPID 
STOOPID tripod foot.

400mm f/5.6 Canon?  I've got 400mm f/5.6 with the 280 APO + 1.4x extender, 
the Canon's tripod mount isn't nearly as good as the 280 APO's, and what 
I've seen of it's image quality, it's great by CaNikon standards ;)
