Now that Nikon announced their 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S for US$2,696.95 ( Amazon ), this new Sony is becoming very attractive!

Some might prefer the built-in OIS and/or the weather sealing of the Nikon lens for the extra $500. But in the end it comes down to IQ and we don't know how the Nikon lens compares yet. The differences in bodies will sway some as well.

Competition is great and we will likely see an update from Canon this year too.  2013 is looking like a great year for amateur birding lenses.
