I just looked up the specs on the LF444 and it is showing 10pA typical 
but 50-100pA max depending on the grade. So if you are looking to match 
those specs there are several amps that will do it.

At the risk of sounding impertinent, do you really need that much 
performance? i understand the desire to max out on a critical spec, but 
you pay for that performance. Why pay for more than you need?
