I´m going on a safari and have these options.
1. Used 200-400VR1
2. New 80-400AF-S
3. Rent 200-400VR2
The cost will be about the same for all options if I manage to sell the lenses after the trip. And a positive is that I will have the summer to get used to the lens if I go for option 1 or 2.
I will use a D800 on the trip.
Is the 200-400VR1 a lot worse than the VR2?
Will the 70-200VR2 just stay in the bag if I choose the 80-400AF-S?
I´m also worried about the weight of the 200-400 both for carry on and for usability.
