Thank you Marty, Eric and Rick for your inputs.

i think I shall do a test and see how much sharper the 300mm f/4 is compared to the new 80-400mm.

Eric, when you say that the 300mm f/4 is sharper, did you compare it against the 300mm setting on the 80-400mm or did you compare it against the 400mm setting on the 80-400?

I have also the 70-200mm f/2.8 (the earlier version), 24-70mm f/2.8, Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Macro, and the 50mm f/1.4G. Bodies are the D7000 and D800.

To get a longer 'reach', I may use the 80-400 on the D800 in DX mode, unless I need to otherwise.
