Anyone compare AF speed of AF-S 80-400 VRII with AF-S 70-200 VR's?
7 months ago

I am considering purchasing the 80-400 VRII lens to use for outdoor action photography, mainly of swimming.  Could someone who owns both this lens and a 70-200 F2.8 VR or VRII advise me how the AF speed of the AF-S 80-400 VRII compares to the AF speed of the AF-S 70-200 F2.8"s?

Or another possibility.  How does the AF speed of the AF-S 80-400 VRII compare to that of the AF-S 70-300 VRII?

Thanks for your help.
