seriously need all pros and cons and hands-on experience for these two lenses as they are suitable for my budget and planning to buy either of them soon.

I had written an article giving my views about 300mm f4 L IS USM vs 400mm f5.6 L USM lens. Have a look at this http://www.indiawilds.com/forums/showthread.php?t=529

Lens buying is a personal decision which should be based on your specific needs and aspirations ie. the type of shooting you are doing or want to do.

If you want to shoot birds, mammals, tripod vs handheld, lowlight situations does impact your decision. A full frame body vs APS-C sized sensor body also makes a difference. So only after knowing the details we can suggest.
