new 80-400 focus breathing 400mm becomes 261mm at close focus

I did a quick calculation (using http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/camera-lenses.htm) and get a focal length of 261mm at closest focus distance.

maybe I'll think a bit more before taking the plunge. AFS 300mm f4.0 (even without TC1.4 !)  is much better in this regard.

I suppose the convenience of the zoom range has to compromise some aspects.
