Same as Raptor, I have just traded my 80-400 for a 200-400 for aviation and kids soccer and sports shooting.

I now use my D2x with 200-400 in case I have to crop or occasionally use HSC with it but then use my 70-200 on my D2Hs for when they get closer. Works like a treat and I am very happy with the results.

I covered an airshow with this combination at the weekend and with windy, dusty conditions on a country airfield, it also avoided having to change lenses and therefore escape possible dust spots. I actually got more keepers. I just have to get stronger fore arms to wield that thing around.
