A 70-200 is not going to get to 400mm with reasonable IQ. If the 80-400 can and the newer VR keeps things under control then it will be useful for certain types of shooting.

Hi Robert,

Absolutely indeed.

I've not owned the old lens, but the major complain I understood of many users is it's slow focusing and not th image quality itself.That seems to be over with the newer version.
