To my surprise DxOMark has given higher scoring for 80-400 Nikon than 100-400 Canon. I assume that should not be taken seriously and closer macro distance has value!!

Well, Ephotozine has it sharper than the Canon 100-400 on similar Mp bodies - 5D MKIII to the Nikon D600:

GIGO. That's a foolish extrapolation. Similar is not identical.

LOL. Nice try weedy, but your opinion here is of little worth as usual. The foolishness is the belief that the difference is due to a couple of Mp as the sharpness difference is too large in this particular test. Nice try to denigrate but you failed once again.

Why not cite Lenscore? Are you not especially fond of it (or is that only insofar as the 400 f/2.8 is concerned?)?

Lenscore is also a very good resource, as is Photozone, CameraLabs, Photography Life. All these resources are valuable to garner a feel for the lens. However, just because one says one lens is better under one test scenario doesn't diminish the value of another that says the other lens is better under another test scenario. What it tells us is that they are very close and comparable.
