Hi,

the 80-400mmG lens is very sharp when AF-fine tuned - even with the 1.4xIII as seen below giving you cover upto 540mm. AF speed is fine with the D810 & D750 and maybe faster with the D500. As mentioned previously , having the range between 80-150mm makes it ideal for when game approach closely.

Thanks,

Adrian

Wow, those images are superb!

Thanks.

If you do go for the 80-400mmG I would also get a medium sized lens plate Incase it gets used on a gimbal.

Thanks,

Adrian
