I really wanted this lens. Now I'm not so sure it adds much to a kit including a 70-200 f2.8 VR, a 300 f2.8 VR and a 500 f4 AF-S. But I see it having wide appeal - and better late than never.

It might not "add" anything but carrying the 80-400 instead of the kit detailed above would certainly mean a lot less weight. It wouldn't be my first choice (I'd take your kit in a heartbeat, money no object) but for someone on a stricter budget, it makes a lot of sense.
