Thanks to our local camera store and photo group sponsor, George's Camera, I was able to try out the new AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens today.
I must say the focus is very fast compared to the old version which I own. It also seems to be sharper, and I like the ergonomics.
I do not like the $2,700 price tag. The old version of this lens is now available for $1,500. I'm not sure the new one is worth the extra $1,200.
Still, always fun trying out new gear.
