I am interested in the Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR, but it's an old design, (introduced 2000), without an HSM motor which is unacceptable at it's price point. Also, when comparing the reviews at SLRgeat.com and Photozone, it appears the 80-400 lens is only very slightly better optically than the much less costly Sigma 120-400mm, which does have HSM. Can anyone give some insight into what lenses Nikon plans to refresh this year?
