Has anyone ditched their 70-200VRII after buying an 80-400AF-S G?
Aug 13, 2014

I have a 70-200VRII that I rarely use. As in haven't seen it in 2 or 3 months at least. I use the 80-400G as my main lens on my 810 and the 300 2.8VR generally with TC1.4II on the D4. But I like the fast focus of 2.8 zooms as compared to the 80-400. But I just don't know what to use the 70-200 for. It's way too short for most of what I shoot, and if I want a portrait lens I'll use my 85 or an old MF 135. I've got a Sigma 150 macro so that FL is covered too. Has anyone bought the 80-400G and replaced their 70-200?

Someone I know just  offered me a real good price for mine, and I'm debating. I don't need anyone to decide for me, but interested in opinions. Thanks
