Re: 80-400mm versions - is D worth buying instead of G?

I had the older version and it was a mediocre lens in terms of autofocus performance and the VR function. I sold it and was using a 70-200mm f2.8 VR lens with a teleconverter instead. I have the new lens and it is exceptional in terms of autofocus, VR, and image quality. Expensive to be sure but worth the extra money. I would not use the old 80-400mm lens except as a very last resort.
