Kevin, your battery drains faster in cold weather so your camera has less power to move those lens motors.
Take that into consideration in winter, try to keep those batteries warm.

My other Option is the Nikon 70-200VR with 1.7x or 2x TC. Are there many here shooting with that combination?
|Quoting Clickhappy (Reply 17):|
Experienced photographers seem to be able to get the most out of the 80-400.
Ah, so thats it, I dont know what I am doing!
|Quoting Cancidas (Reply 18):|
i've got the lens and absolutely love the thing. it's the staple lens of the majority of the group of spotters i hang out with.

What stop were you using at the time? There seems to be some variables when the Lens is wide open. Do you get the same results when you stop the lens down? e.g. F8-F9?

didn't officially retire the lens until I bought the 70-200VR f/2.8 and later the TC-14 II. The 80-400VR pales in comparison to the 70-200VR when considering sharpness and AF speed. Yeah yeah, it doesn't have the same 'reach', but I can live with that...

If I determine it to be a doorstop I will sell it and save for a Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 HSM lens.
