Best Lens ever

Michael, B&H Photo
19 December 2015
  • Excerpt: I used the Nikon 800mm for Wildlife and sports photography. I have to say it is tack sharp around all corners. I got really great shots using it for the first time on Bald Eagles. Perfect match with my Nikon D4S.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Love this lens

  • Excerpt: This 800mm is tack sharp and fast. It's a lot lighter then my Sigma 300-800mm which makes it easier to carry around. Glad I have another great line from Nikon!

It lives up to the hype.

  • Excerpt: I have been wanting to upgrade my old AF-s 500 for some time. It was a tossup between the 600 and 800. Most of what I read and what I saw on uTube didn't really answer the question. But the one thing that stuck in my mind was the raves about the sharpness of the 800mm.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Heavy

Price Discount Accepted!

Philip Foiles, Amazon
19 May 2015
  • Summary: I was initially very skeptical of the worth of spending $17999 on this lens, but with the discount making the price 17996, I say, "Woo-goo!" Sign me up for this bad boy. I've the perfect spot on my roof for the shot into the window of the cute neighbor that just moved in 2 blocks away.

New Lens or New Car?

Amazon Customer, Amazon
8 April 2015
  • Summary: You can purchase this lens and walk to your next shooting location, or purchase a car and drive there. With the same amount of money, you can only do one or the other. Even still, this is by far the creme de la creme of lenses for DSLRs IMO.

Nikon 800mm f/5.6E VR

BillA, Crutchfield
6 August 2014
  • Summary: I have used Nikon cameras and lenses for 30+ years. It's difficult to compare this lens to any other that I have used, including the 600mm f/4 VRII. Paired with the Nikon D4s (with or without its dedicated 1.25E TC), it's a dream lens for the wildlife/bird photographer.
  • Pros: Razor sharp and quick focus, excellent balance, great VR
  • Cons: The price, but I suppose that you get what you pay for.

Grab it at once, don't think twice

SY Chan, B&H Photo
5 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this 800mm lens together with Nikon D4s in June 2014 and have used the combo on several bird watching trips, mostly to bird hides on wetlands and one trip on a junk to a terns island. It proved worthy of its price and beyond.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Heavy
