I'm drooling over the AFS 80-200 myself. Just thinking between the 300F4 or 80-200f2.8 and have yet to fully decide which to go with. So far the two-touch 80-200 works well for me but I like the option to use converters without losing autofocus speed. But either one seems to be a great choice. I agree one cannot keep up with technology unless they have several billion dollars in the bank. And even then it's difficult to keep up!
