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

I bought mine taking advantage of the discount. I really like it, and I've owned the old 80-400,  and 300f4 AFS, and TC14EII.

The old 80-400 was fine up to about 300, very good. But it was not very good at 400, and VR was slow.

The 300 TC is  very good, but the zoom is as good or better,  and so versatile.

I am ver happy with it. I have been waiting for this lens for a long time. It is for me the BEST option at the price point
