As Good as it Gets

  • Summary: I've been shooting with this lens for the last two years and prior to that the first version for four and a half years. It is as fine a lens as can be had for birds in flight, hand carried, as well as anything else. It's versatility is second to none.

It's not what it seems.

  • Summary: This is an amazing lens...however, the retail price listed by Amazon is NOT the true price. If you go to www.nikonusa.com and have a look at their info about this lens, you'll discover that the retail price is $6999.95 NOT the $8400 price tag shown by Amazon.

Great lens

Alex H, B&H Photo
31 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I do mostly action shots for boat racing and this lens serves me well. I was debating for a long time if I would go with the 300mm 2.8, 400 2.8 or this 200-400 f4. 300mm would have been too short on several occasions and 400mm too long on several occasions as well.

A Great Wildlife Photographic Rifle

Jungle Rhythms, B&H Photo
12 August 2014
  • Excerpt: A serious tool to capture candid wildlife shots. I have researched a lot on the lens that can accommodate my needs of both wildlife photojournalism and film making and this lens is the one that suits the most pairing up with the holy trinity - 70-200mm VR2 and the 24-70mm G lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Lives up to reputation

24 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I am a long time serious amateur and I have coveted this lens for a long time. I specifically waited on the newer version and the improvements in the VR capability were well worth the wait. Sharpness, bokeh and expected Nikon build quality are all there.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
