While some wait for the price of a new camera or lens to drop a couple of hundred dollars, I'm out using and enjoying mine. Well worth it.

(this is for the 100-400 II)
For even less money Nikon cameras give you more. This is quite simple. Just look at all the examples on line of severely underexposed pictures with the last d810 or d750 and how they can handle a 3-5 stops push.
The MTF's on the new 100-400 @ 400 are substantially better than the 400 5.6 prime which is a pretty sharp lens. In fact, the charts say it's substantially sharper even with the 1.4x and 2x tele's attached. Didn't expect to see that. If it focuses quickly and tracks well I may have to retire the prime.
The picture in his article with him holding it is the first time I've caught the fact that it still has a barrel that moves in and out thus still making this lens a potential for sucking in dust and moisture like the old version that I have. That's a disappointment. I thought I read somewhere here that it didn't do that and it was a more "balanced: lens since it wouldn't change it's centre of gravity when zoomed in.
