    Hey Tim -

    I had the 80-400 VR for about a year and it was a very handy lens that produced pretty good results, and you can't beat the 80-400 range. The VR worked well and was very handy. The only complaint I had was that focusing was a bit slow in low light and also slow for birds in flight. So I sold it and replaced it with maybe three lenses each of which cost way more than the 80-400. I don't know any of the possible alternatives, but if you get a good price on the 80-400 you won't be disappointed as long as you know its limitations going in.

    Good lens hunting!
