No doubt the 80-400 is more versatile, but I really think you are under estimating how sharp your 300 really is. I had to sell my 300 to fund the 80-400, I don't regret it at all, but man that 300 was crazy sharp.
Oh, I know how sharp it is. The 300mm is sharper than the 80-400mm (marginally, but noticeably) at 300mm - I've done the tests and shot with them both.
It's just become hard for me to grab the 300mm on the way out the door, because the zoom has so much more versatility regardless of what I see while I'm out. Nothing to do with how good the 300mm is.
