Re: 80-400 VR revival on 800e dx mode

When I tried my 80-400VR with my D800 the two didn't get along too well. There was a lot of focus hunting going on and while the photos were able to be used, they were far from what I get if the 70-200 VR II or 200-400 VR are placed on the D800.

I have decided that my 80-400 VR does better with my D4 and only in an extreme emergency would I use it on the D800.
