What about you??? What lens did you sell, then FINALLY find a way to get one back into your bag? I sold my 80x400 VR before the D300 came out to help fund my upgrade from a D200. I do a lot of lens swaps, etc. and I've had a lot of glass, but I've got to admit that that 80x400 has been the one lens that I've missed the most. It was just small enough to fit into three of my favorite bags. It's sharp and the range is amazing. If only they made it in a 2.8 for the same price. Well, I made the plunge today and purchased one that looked to be in very good condition and seems to shoot very well (more photos will come later). Initial tests and AF fine tune showed no issues.... Here's a couple of samples of my "baby" now that she's come back home.
