I agree. It is only $200 cheaper than the 70-200 f/2.8 + the TC20EIII! We will see, but it is very hard to see the 80-400 matching the 70-200 below 200, and hard to see it bettering the 70-200 + TC from 200-400.

The 70-200 with the 2.0 TC isn't sharp at all.  My guess is this new lens will be far better looking at the MTF charts.  That said, this lens is probably $500 over priced, but it will likely come down some over time.
