Like the 70-200 VRII, which is 70-150 at close distances; it appears from the specs that this is a 80(?)-300 (or less) at close distances. I sold my 80-400 a couple years ago (yeah, silly me) but I don't recall that it played the "reduce the focal length" game that Nikon has been designing into their lenses of late.

The price and close up capability of this lens will probably push up the price of the older 80-400 (woe is me) as the D800 quality control problems are pushing up the prices on nice used D3/D3S bodies (but that is a discussion for a different forum category).
