Congrats on graduating! (HS / College?)
KEH will probably make good on that if they have the part available, they've been good to me over the years.
The 400 2.8 is definitely a beast, been around a long time, and even though it doesn't have IS, a good monopod will keep you nice and stable for some great shots. You'll have a lot of working room on that 7D
Thank ya sir, graduated from college (last Saturday) with a degree in Graphic Design/Photography.
And yeah, KEH is one of my favorite photo stores to deal with. And I can not wait to try this thing out. Having a good reach in low light settings will be a nice change from cropping the mess out of a photo.
