I also have the 18 to 200 VR which is much smaller and faster focusing but ..The 80 to 400 is very easy to handhold ,I was really suprised......Here is a link to some of the first photos I took with it and they are straight from the camera...no PP at all.

Hi genece,

thanks for the samples. How's the AF, though? Any issues with hunting? I suspect that it worked fine for your samples, as you had ample light, but I was wondering how it works in slightly lower light (where the OS will really help).

I think it is fine in lower light...it will focus rather quickly indoors.....I do have a problem with BIF and planes but I think that may be my fault....I need more practice there....I just need more opportunity to practice at that.

I think I may be using the wrong focus mode for that....I am open for suggestions if anyone has any.
