Re: Nikon 80-400mm

The Nikon 80-400 has better IQ than the Bigma, but lacks AFS which makes it way too slow for birds and aircraft in flight. Fine for static subjects though.

I have had the 80-400vr, 50-500 and my wife is currently using the 50-500 OS which I bought after testing the 150-500 as well. I would suggest you seriously consider the Nikkor 300 f/4 with converters or the 70-200vr2 with TC20EIII instead.
