40% price increase compared to the old Nikon AF-S 80-400/4,5-5,6G ED VR.

I'm sure this one is better, but is it 40% better?

The release price was $2,700 for both. There's been about 20% inflation since the 80-400 was released. So, the inflation adjusted release price of the Z is actually 20% less than that of the 80-400. Current price of the 80-400 (just checked on B&H) is $2,300, which is 17% less than the Z lens. This all seems very reasonable. I don't know where you got your "40% price increase" from.

Not sure where B&H got those prices from...80-400 seems overpriced.

Got prices from several authorized Nikon dealers (not B&H...not US).

Difference is 40%.

Your mileage might vary...
