Craig, thank you for your detailed description of you experience with these lenses.

I've had the AFD 80-400 for a number of years and my experience has been the same as yours.

I've had some problems getting good BIF shots, however I've been shooting wide open.

I going to follow your recommendation and stop down to F 9
