Try the new 2.8 70-200 with the new aspherical 2x extender. Yes I know it's
f5.6 and not f4, but the price and weight difference may be worth it.

But, yup! I like that lens.

Or get any of the superzoom P&S cameras and you'll increase the
focal-length reach and enlarge the aperture by 3-fold, while getting images
that rival or beat those of any DSLR for 1/10th the price and weight of a
DSLR + lenses. Any difference in ISO performance is made up in 3 times more
aperture with the added benefit of no shots lost while changing lenses or
having to clean crud off your sensor. You'll also be allowed in all public
performances where DSLRs are now banned.

But you foolish blind-worshippers of last-century designs, you go ahead,
keep your heads buried in the sand.

Or wherever it is that you keep your heads.

Name _one_ superzoom with an aperture of 150mm (f/4 at 200mm x3) diameter.

Definitely more affordable solution. I'll keep it in mind. Thanks
