Nikon 80-400mm autofocus VR zoom lens

Susan G., Amazon
8 November 2015
  • Summary: This lens works great on my Nikon D7100! I highly recommend it if you're in the market for one. I was kind of nervous about buying an item this expensive, and used, online without being able to see it first. But when it arrived, I anxiously opened it, hoping it wasn't covered in scratches.

I love this lens

Scott D. Welch, Amazon

  • Summary: I was able to find an absolutely mint condition used Nikkor 80-400 FX lens to couple with my Nikon D7000 DX body, which basically converts to a 120-600mm 35mm equivalent range lens.

Affordable Long Reach

Davidmichael , Nikon
28 July 2015
  • Summary: I purchased the AF VR Zoom-Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED because I wanted a longer reach than the 24-85 I had. There are other lenses with a 400mm reach, but those are also 4x to 7x times more expensive.

My new favorite lens. It is larger that I expected

Beardoc, Amazon
10 June 2015
  • Summary: My new favorite lens. It is larger that I expected, but I have gotten used to lugging it on hikes. It does a decent job with action photos if the light is good. I am able to get good focus with hand holding, but a tripod gives greater clarity.

quality issues

Charlie72 , Nikon

  • Summary: i purchased the 80-400mm lens and the rear lens cap is welded on. I tried to remove it with huge plummer pliers along with other methods. I have over 12 lenses and never had this problem. I am not impressed with the quality of this Nikon lens. And it is made in Japan!!!

The new version is good no doubt

hunter1, Amazon
7 February 2015
  • Summary: Despite all the praise for the new version, I would say this one is the real deal. It is insanely sharp. Some said the sharpness drops past 200mm and it is awful at 400mm, not to my eyes. It is sharp from 80 all the way to 400!

  • Summary: I purchased this lens for a whale watching trip to Mexico. I like the weight of the lens. Easy to hold. The picture of the white wing dove was the very first picture with this lens.

Best Value for a Quality, Portable, Telephoto Zoom Lens

Scripps23 , Nikon
15 October 2014
  • Summary: This first generation Nikon 80-400mm auto focus zoom lens was Nikon's first vibration reduction (VR) lens. I have owned it for over ten years and it continues to amaze me in terms of optical quality, resolution, and portability.
