I agree 100%. I owned the older 80-400mm AF-D VR and I used it in variety of situations where I was photographing wildlife and needed a more portable option (including Denali and shooting from a canoe in the Everglades ). Unfortunately, I eventually got frustrated at its autofocus speed and sold it, with the 200-400mm, 70-200mm and 300mm mostly taking its place. The new one is quite nice, and I can see using it in those same kinds of situations again, including BIF shots, where it should be very handy.
