I have a D700 with 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom, and need some advice for a second lens to extend from 70mm. I am fond of the 80-400mm because of the excellent range - or should I be get the 70-200mm f/2.8? What are the pro/cons with each lens?? Should I save my money and go with the much cheaper 70-300mm?. Another thing, is the 80-200 non-VR "beast".
The D700 performs excellent at high ISO, so maybe f/2.8 and VR is not an issue to me. Should I save my money and by the cheaper 70-300 f/3.5? I mainly want a walkabout lens, so the 80-400mm is tempting but have read that it's AF speed is really crap.
