One reason might be that you can obtain the same effect in several
80-400mm f/4-5.6 VR lens used at 400mm
80-200mm f/2.8 AF-S lens at 200mm + TC-20E teleconverter
70-200mm f/2.8 AF-S VR G lens at 200mm + TC-20E
300mm f/4 AF-S lens + TC-14E teleconverter (yields 420mm f/5.6)
So perhaps the question is why you want a 400 f/5.6 when you have
all of those other alternative possibilities available.
