I'm a Nikon guy but one lens I've always been super envious of the Canon 100-400. What a perfect range for aviation. My go to is my 200-500, but the base of 200mm makes it limited when shooting photos of anything close, so I'm trying to find a decent equivalent to the 100-400.
Does anyone here have any experience with the latest versions of the Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR and/or 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II? I have the latest iteration of the 70-300 from Nikkor, and while it is a very solid lens, it doesn't have the image quality of my 200-500. I have read some say the 80-400 is a great lens but lacks the image quality of the 200-500, so I'm also considering the 70-200 f2/.8.
Thanks in advance!
