Re: Nikon 200-400 VR1 In 2021?

I have the 200 to 400 VR2.  It is a great lens.  Comparatively, its greatest strength for me is its close focusing and close image size, even with a 1.4 TC.  Think hummingbirds.  I also have the 80 to 400 and have used the 200 to 400 very little since getting the 80 to 400   The 80 to 400 does take the 1.4TC, but becomes f8.  The 80 to 400 does not focus close and does not have the image magnification of the 200 to 400.  The primes, 500 mm f4 and 800 f5.6, do not produce the image magnification of the 200 to 400.  Even using the TC on the primes does not overcome the difference in close image size.
