there will always be someone looking for the biggest range lens in the catalogue. It's human nature. I don't personally get much of the need for more than a 28-135 type lens for walkabouts. the 200-400 range is mainly sports and wildlife territory and in that situation I wouldn't have to zoom out enough to need below the 80-100mm, so I wouldn't want to compromise the IQ by having the 18-80 range in the same lens (having the experience that I do). Good luck expecting the quality of a Sigma 17-70 and 100-400 in one 18-400 lens. Just because I know 18-400 can be done in one lens doesn't make me comfortable with the results.

prediction, will be bigger then expected and disappoint from an IQ perspective
