On seeing the new 800mm f5.6 lens from Nikon, my first thought was that it was another nail in the D400 coffin. We all know why we prefer to stick with DX for our wildlife photography, and the 500/4 on a D300 is a classic combination. Will the 800/5.6 on a D800 or D4 become the new favourite combination?

Is my loss of confidence in a new D400 a totally irrational conclusion? Are you more, or less confident there will be a D400 now?

Kind regards,
Paul
