Best:

 

Either the EF 600mm f/4 IS II ($11,500.00) or the EF 200-400 f/4 IS with built in 1.4x teleconverter ($11,000.00).

Canon 5d mk 4, Canon 6D, EF 70-200mm L f/2.8 IS mk2; EF 16-35 f/2.8 L mk. III; Sigma 35mm f/1.4 "Art" EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro; EF 85mm f/1.8; EF 1.4x extender mk. 3; EF 24-105 f/4 L; EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS; 3x Phottix Mitros+ speedlites

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?

EF 600mm f/4L IS II

 

Without know the task at hand and amount of magnification needed may as well recommend the Canon 1200 L

The EF 600mm f/4L IS II with a 2X teleconverter actually gives better image quality than the EF 1200 f/5.6L. While it may be a stop slower, the EF 600mm f/4L IS II does have image stabilization.

 

The EF 600mm f/4L IS II truly is the best lens over 400mm regardless of the price.

But practically speaking, what the OP needs is portability. The $100k 1200mm lens is great but hard to move. He needs a small camera transporting vehicle, like a Ferarri or a Porche.  😉
