You should note that the 80-400 is the oldest VR lens in Nikon's lineup, slow focusing, and not the best match to the D800's capabilities. A replacement has been rumored for some time, but no one knows when it will come out. I'd advise holding off on buying a copy until later next year. Nikon's present solution for this range is the 70-200 f2.8 + tc-20 teleconverter. But frankly, if you're trying to extract the very most out of the D800, you should avoid the slow convenience zooms. Read this Nikon Technical Guide first:
