I recently had a chance to play with Canon 100-400 L. This lens is great for the price.

I do have the Nikon 70-300 VR for comparisons and the Nikon feels cheap compared to the 100-400 L. It did tempt me to switch over to Canon.

it's $1700 for a variable aperture zoom. the "L" is more marketing than anything else. i'd wouldn't jump ship to canon for this lens alone.

with the D800's 36mp, you can use the cheap but good 70-300VR and simply crop a little bit to get "400mm equivalent" but still having significant pixel count.
