    I have the 400 L series 5.6 Lens for birding and love it. However, other
    opportunities lay ahead whereby I could see myself hoping to photograph
    other larger wildlife. With this in mind I was thinking of the 100 to 400
    zoom IS L series. The crux of the matter is that I love the quality of the
    prime and wonder how much quality loss I would have to forgo using the zoom
    (say at 400 for comparison). Looking for real world experience here so
    unless you have used these lenses don't bother responding. Look forward to
    your views and comments.

    Folks, as always, lots of good advice. Bill, thanks for the below and also
    to the poster who sent me to luminous landscape. Decision made, staying
    with the 400 fixed.
