I have been using the above for a while now and read with interest all the discussion on the recently introduced 80-400 VR lens. I know this is probably old ground but can anyone give me first hand info on the VR against my 80-200+TC20E combination. I am only concerned about optics we all know how good the VR capability is, but if it's a tad soft during VR operation is it very much sharper than what i am using now? BTW i am not flaming the VR in any way i think it's a great advance, iv'e just moved into aviation photography and think that the lens would be a boon to me. However to get it i would have to part with my 80-200 +TC20E+probably an F100 body too! So it would have to be good, i wouldn't mind dropping from two F100'S to one and maybe an F80 as i think this is also a good camera so i would like to ask what the VR focusing is like on the F80 as well.
Sorry for so many questions jules.
