Are you sure the 'trashing' reviews are not for the old 80-400D? Reviews of the new lens I've seen range from 'very good' to 'almost matches 200-400 f4'. It's had particularly positive reviews from some nature/wildlife photographers e.g. here:

I'll be buying one in the next month or so and I've not seen anything that gives me less than complete confidence it will be a good buy.
