Think of buying the new 80-400. I have the 70-200 2.8 and love it. Shooting D4. (but not a professional) When using the 70-200 I am usually outdoors so light is normally not an issue. Trying to decide if I should sell the 70-200 or not. Since I lose 2 stops on the 80-400 if I do get into low light situations can I just go to higher ISO and get reasonable close IQ as with 70-200? Do not want to use teleconverter as IQ does go down. Thanks for any help or advice.
