Re: Nikon 200-400 f4 testing

It is good feedback though a comparison with the 120-400 too. I am interested ofcourse in a comparison with the 120-300 as i had that lens too and believe it or no i sold it after one year of no successful use to keep my trusty 120-400 until i manage to get a 200-400, and thats because the 120-300 was helpless in AF performance regarding action. It has been always a hit and miss with the AF, i couldn't rely on this lens, comparing at least to the consistency of the AF performance of the 120-400. With static subjects was exceptional, superb, awesome, but focus was rarely correct with fast moving subjects especially inbound or outboung (even slow) and especially at the long end of the lens (to mention that already is not a real 300mm at 300 but quite less) And that even after two calibration and check sessions, one to Sigma Germany and one to Sigma Japan ....
