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.
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

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.
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!!!
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!
Best Value for a Quality, Portable, Telephoto Zoom Lens

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.
