Re: 80-400mm question


I think the 80-400vr performs better on my D700 than it does on my D300. The D700 is more forgiving of less-sharp lenses. Of course I generally still use the D300 because I'm wanting reach most of all.

I second that opinion. I bought the lens and used it initially on my d2x and later on d300. I was never really happy with the lens, it was just ok. But on full frame (d700) the lens really starts to live and shine. It is quite sharp wide open at 400 mm and stopped down to 7.1 or 8 it is excellent.
