Lostprophet is right....
I sit here .. and I am trying to imagine... exactly in what situations that an aperture of f/4 is not enough... "Most" wildlife pictures, just like in hunting are not shot with the subject in a full blown sprint or movement...
If you shoot at dusk or dawn, one extra stop means that you can shoot earlier or later than you could with one stop less. I do agree however that f4 would do the job most of the time, and you would probably stop down a bit anyway to gain DOF when you have enough light. But although you dont capture animals in motion, you sometimes want pictures of birds spreading their wings and then you want all the stops you can have to freeze it, especially when shooting at dusk or dawn.
