I bought this lens to replace my AI-S 100-300 mm. f/5.6 Nikkor. Nikon currently does not offer any lens in this range, while the 200-400 f/4 zoom or the 300 and 400 mm. f/2.8D primes all cost from $ 4.000 up.
That kind of cash does not fit my budget, while such an investment could not be justified due to my infrequent use of this type of lenses. To my own surprise, however, I have used this lens much more often than my old 100-300 Nikkor.
