Has anyone been disappointed with the new 80-400?

I was disappointed they didn't update the 400 f/5.6 prime lens

So I have delayed replacing my 70-300, also because there is no upgrade for the top-of-the-line DX camera and Nikon seems no longer serious about the DX working lens lineup.

Just not sure to go with the birding system long term. Ultra-expensive exotic primes on an FX camera is not it. Not much point in keeping Nikon DX if the lens line is dead, unless they bring out a serious camera that makes it worth it just for that purpose. Perhaps they'll bring out another 18-xxx f/3.5-5.6 zoom that really turns it around for me.

Just another budget birder abandoned in Nikon-land.
