I was debating about the new 80-400 afs a bit but I need more reach once in a while and I would not see who would drop a 1.4x on the 80-400 then be at f8 wide open. If 400mm is the maximum someone needs then it makes more sens to get the 80-400. Would be interesting to see some compare pics of the 80-400 vs the 200-400 in that focal range.

great point although some complain about the 1.4 on the 200-400

I did some quick backyard shooting w/ the 1.4 on the 80-400 and I won't go there again.

The D7100 in 1.3 Image Area mode is awesome and I would much rather have the camera be a 2x than add a tc to a zoom......IMO, other then the 70-200vr2 there are no zooms that do well with TCs, including the 70-200vr1


I'm one of those who usually (but not always) tried to avoid using the 1.4 TC with the 200-400VR for distance, but had less problem doing so with close up objects. For reasons I never understood, it had nothing to do with focusing.
