    Buy this lens. You'll have it forever. Easy for me to say. I first stumbled into a super deal on the 80-200 2.8 dual ring and then sold it when I ran into an equally great deal on a pristine 70-200m VRII. Money aside, the 70-200 is fantastic and if you can, you should own one. Great on DX and FX bodies.

    Horses for different courses. The 80-400 gives a lot of range in that it has 80-200, but the 200-500 has it at the long end. I use the 500mm setting far more often than 80-200 on the 80-400.

    I like the fact that the 80-400 will work with my F6, because it's a "G" and compatible. The 200-500 has the electromagnetic aperture, and isn't compatible with any of my film cameras; a small dislike, though.

    The optical performance is weighed in favor of the 200-500, just based on my usage and observations. I have no empirical data to support this, though.

    I have the older Tamron 70-200 2.8. It rarely comes off the camera. It comes off if I'm inside.

    Try "Honey I really need to this lens to capture your unique beauty that only the finest lenses can" You can mention that while presenting her with her favorite flowers.

    I didn't have a girlfriend when I got my 70-200 2.8 but one of the first girls I shot in an event liked the photos so much we started dating and have been together ever since. Flattering portraits are great tools to get what you want;>)
