Nikon 70-200VRII vs new 80-400VR
1 month ago

Hi,

I have the Nikon 70-200VRII f/2.8 + Nikon TC20E-III. I have never been happy with this setup. The 70-200 alone is okay, but with the TC20 on the lens, I think the IQ is worse than my old 80-400VR, which was good.

My problem is, that I have sold my 80-400VR, and thinking about getting the new 80-400, and sell the TC20.

Do you have any input about the overall IQ between 70-200VRII f/2.8 vs 80-400VR f/4.5--5.6, from real life?

Thanks in advance.
