But, for anyone who was thinking about the 200-400, this new 80-400 has really rendered the 200-400 just about obsolete as optically, the new 80-400 is at least as good and actually better on distant objects.
This is definitely not true on close-up objects. Anything within ~75', the 200-400mm is the sharpest lens I've used. I compared it back-to-back with the 80-400mm.
I'm also not sure that the autofocus on the 80-400mm beats it. That's just subjective, as my 200-400mm is now sold, but the 80-400mm doesn't feel quite as quick.
The new lens definitely took a bite out of the used market for the 200-400mm, though, dropping the average price by several hundred dollars.
