I have the 80-400 and did a quick comparison with my favorite zoom 70-200/2,8 ISmk2

at 200 mm and 5,6

d800 + 80-400 and 5dmk2 together with 70-200

d800 down sample to 5dmk2 resolution 5616px

The 80-400 behaves well in comparison with the best 70-200 zoom there are

On my decent monitor (u2713H) the Nikon clearly looks better at the center while the Canon looks better everywhere else.  The Canon does better with the reflection on the bottom, the corrosion on the stem and the leaves.  You don't see that?  I'd say the Nikon was better at center due to its higher pixel count.

Thanks for posting the comparison.  It's the best way to make these comparisions IMO.

best, David
