Sorry to hear the 80-400VR didn't meet your needs, but I can understand why you wanted to try it. For me, the 80-400VR is good enough to replace my 70-200VRII -- mostly because I need to shoot longer than 200mm most times and don't need f2.8. IMO the 80-400VR IQ beats most 70-200+TC combos, and at half the cost of a used 200-400VR, the 80-400VR provides good value.

But don't pay any mind to the "detractors" about your decision to return it. No lens is perfect and no matter how many reviews you read it's almost impossible to know whether a lens will meet personal expectations until you get it on your camera.

Good luck!
