Hi Rohinton,

It depends on what you shoot and the ambient conditions that you shoot in.
While VR is great to have, it won't allow you to use a faster shutter speed to freeze the motion of a moving subject.
The 300mm f/4 also has a slight advantage in subject isolation compared to the 80-400mm.

Best Regards,
Marty
