Re: Has anyone been disappointed with the new 80-400?

Ever since I heard about it coming and when it arrived I thought about it. Finally on Black Friday it came on sale and I bought it. I have not picked up any other lens since then. 99% of my photographic efforts are birds. I have no complaints at all. I like the construction, I have no problems with the collar and I shoot almost everything on a tripod. Like any long lens there is a learning curve. 9000 photos later I am still learning and will for a long time. It is not a $5000 or $10,000 lens so there is no point in comparing it. It is a lot of money and if you can not afford it, do not buy it. You should enjoy your photography and not stress over the cost of your equipment.

The happiest part of my week is when my camera is in hand and I am out birding.
