  • Excerpt: Heavy duty zoom lens. Right on the edge of hand held versus monopod. I get tired pretty quickly with the handheld, which is my preference. But its an awesome piece of optical artistry. Great pairing with my D700 and D4 as well.

  • Excerpt: First of all, sorry for my English, it´s basic. I bought this lens in order to replace my lovely Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 HSM. At this days, I use it mounted in a Nikon D800, and I can note the following aspects: - Autofocus speed: it´s a bit fasther than the Sigma 120-300. - Sharpness: it´s in the same level of the Sigma, maybe a bit better. - Construction: it´s a beatifull lens, very strong, a great improve over the Sigma 120-300.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: Background: I purchased this lens in anticipation of a deployment to Iraq where I would perform Public Affairs tasks, to include photographing aircraft such as Black Hawk and Chinook helicopters landing and taking off on a flight line.I also wanted to capture the soldiers working on top of the aircraft without making it too conspicuous that was taking photographs of them so it appeared natural.Performance: The camera performed very well.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction

Plan on purchasing the 80 -400

  • Excerpt: Great lens but come on, 7+ pounds. You'll end up getting tired of lugging this thing around and then purchase Nikon's junk lens the 80-400. You'll miss most of your shots with the 80-400 but then again after an hour of lugging the 200-400 around you'll be so exhausted that you'll miss just as many shots.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Review Update

  • Excerpt: I owned/used the previous VR version of this lens for six years. Pros: Very well-constructed, a joy to operate, super-smooth zooming. Excellent bokeh. Hand-holdable, but a monopod/tripod definitely requisite for longer shoots. Very close-focusing for a 400mm optic, which opens "macro" possibilities. Very fast, accurate focusing in reasonable light. Excellent sharpness at closer range. Little-to-no discernible distortion at all focal lengths.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
