I find myself considering the 80-400 or the 70-200+x2 converter. Any chance you could provide shoots of the same subject using the same body but with the two different lens combinations ? I've tried the Sigma 150-500 and the 70-200+x2 and the sigma seemed to provide a sharper Image at 400mm, maybe slightly softened at 500mm. So would be great to see what the image quality the 80-400 vs 70-200+x2 is like. Any comments on the focusing speed of the 80-400 compared to the 70-200+x2?? I hope you can help with some advice.

Don't have to ask how you are doing since I checked out this website pretty thoroughly. (Want to take the time to read over your extensive Home page-- will put on the front burner, get to it.) I am heavy into photography, thanks to all your inspiring intros to this world. Would love to catch up with you -- I have formed the Hudson Valley Photography Network -- http:.//hvphotonet.org, along with starting our local Ulster County Photography Club. Retirement for both of us began in 2005 -- we've never been busier! Travel is still keeping us on the run. Lots to share with you. Fantastic website you have created here. Best to Annie Fire off an email so we can hopefully begin a reconnect. ~Anita Hey Gerald,

Comment on Nikon 80-400 VR by Kevin O'Brien http://delawaresnature.net/?page_id=103&cpage=1#comment-11563 Kevin O'Brien Fri, 31 Aug 2012 10:41:40 +0000 http://delawaresnature.net/?page_id=103#comment-11563 I wish to thank all the negative reviewers of this lens, who enabled me to purchase a second hand 80-400 VR for a very attractive price. Before buying it, I downloaded and read the owner's manual, which contained several points which many reviewers seem to have overlooked. 1. The manual says that, in VR mode 1 and 2, you need to partially depress the shutter release for at least one second before taking a picture. I assume this time is needed to allow the VR to do its work. Observing this rule makes a big difference. 2. The lens may be coupled with a TC-201 teleconverter. With the TC, I now have the reach of an 800mm lens, or 1200mm if you consider the crop factor of the D7000 on which these lenses are mounted. It may not have the low light capabilities of faster lenses, but it every bit as sharp when the light is available.

If not how many houses/cabins do you pass till you get to the gate. I have been up the road a fair distance more than once and have never seen any gate. If you dont know where pike rock is it is by the fast waters under the 3rd island from lordville. thanks matthew Gerald, is the gate at the end of acid factory road across the river from pike/fly rock?

Comment on Nikon D200 vs. D300 by Gerald Janauer http://delawaresnature.net/?page_id=73&cpage=1#comment-10532 Gerald Janauer Thu, 12 Apr 2012 17:20:08 +0000 http://delawaresnature.net/?page_id=73#comment-10532 How is the D7000 at low ISO? I suspect that the D2x and D200 are still cleaner at ISO 100 than the D7000 is at its base ISO. Gerald How is the D7000 at low ISO?

I have multiple AF-D lenses that work great, eg. the 50 f/1.8, 60 f/2.8 AF-D Micro, and 85 f/1.8 AF-D, and the 80-400 VR. The D200's internal focus motor is not particularly fast (I think my D300 is a little faster with these lenses), but it works fine. Yes, the D200 works fine with all Nikon AF lenses.
