A good point about the 80-400 and one of the reasons I'm still a bit hesitant.

I doubt you’re gonna need sub 400mm from the side of a cruise ship, and if you do need it, swap on the 55-300. I’d get the 300 f/4 – I’ve never seen Bigma images that look as good as the 300 f/4, and the bigma will need f/8 at 420 mm, while the 300 f/4 will let you use f/5.6.

And the second you blow $1600 on the Sigma, Nikon will release the updated 80-400.
