Hi,

I used the VR mode on the Nikon 80-400mm VR a lot when shooting in the street/parades last summer. In the winter I didn't use the 'VR ON' Mode often (Tripod) and the battery consumption was quite moderate. But just on the weekend I used it all day 'VR ON' + a lot of autofocus and I realized again what kind of a power drain the lens is. Only a few films went through my F100 using AA batteries before the batteries were exhausted.

Anybody using this lens on a digital body? Should I consider getting my own power plant if I buy a digital body?

Have a nice day

Andreas
