Good performance in good light, experimented with some not so good light too. So far 'O.K.', really want to fine tune it some but it works.
All handheld, at f5.6 and 420 mm on a D300. Next time out I'll stop it down some.

2 and 3 are my favorites. This is just proof that this lens belongs in your hands. I am patiently waiting to see if VR version comes this year or a redesigned 80-400. If not, I will pick up a copy of this lens in the fall.

Not a wildlife person but #3 is fantastic. great light, very moody.

I have a pet starfish, and I'm shocked to see #1! :eek:
