I agree with that 100%

Here's a useful like that might help: http://mikeatkinson.net/Tutorial-3-Equipment.htm

Mike Atkinson is one of the top bird photographers in the world and under the "Ideal Starter Kit" section of that article he says "Make no mistake, if you're spending around £1200 on a bird photography lens and you don't buy the Canon 400mm f/5.6, you will regret it!"
