Comparing the 200-400 with the 80-400 is not a reasonable comparison. The 200-400 is a pro style lens and the 80-400, well.......why would anyone want one?

Also, the statement about the dropping prices of the 200-400 is pretty laughable.

That's a funny comment.  Let's start with the obvious -

1. You can own close to 3 of them for the price of one 200-400.

2. They are lighter and much easier to walk around with.  Let's see you walk around the city with a  200-400.

3. 80-400 is just as sharp from 200 - 400.

4. They offer a much wider field of view - 80 - 200.

5. Much easier to shoot birds in flight with.

I'd say that about covers some of it.
