Quote:I understand that you have found the 70-300 "CX" on Nikon 1 to be better than the 80-400mm on Nikon 1. That is why you sold the 80-400mm?My best shot with the 80-400 VR II was of the moon, at 165mm, and I used it on my D600 (an upgraded copy, after the oil issue).
But how was the 80-400mm on your full frame camera compared to the 70-300mm on the Nikon 1?
But up to around 250mm I found it just as good on the FX as on the CX, but after that it started to fall apart! My 80's Nikon 400/5.6 for instance is sharper than the long end of the 80-400! The CX cameras' extreme resolution clearly out-resolved the lens in its long end.
