Typo - should be 80-400

but otherwise, yes.

I want a portrait lens, but I'm reluctant to drop a load of dosh on the 85/1.4 when it is rumoured to be about to be replaced. The 70-200 is nice, but way too short as the only tele in the bag. The 2X converter makes focusing inaccurate. The 80-400 is (I'm told) old and slow. The lack of something reasonably modern to take on Canon's 100-400 is, I gather, well understood and due to be dealt with (FX: taps fingers impatiently).

I'm happy with my Oly kit - I lack only a proper portrait lens, but it isn't a big deal because the Nikon is the obvious portrait tool.
