Outstanding Lens

Dean, B&H Photo

Replaced my Nikon 300mm f/2.8

New England amateur photographer, B&H Photo
2 June 2015
  • Excerpt: Finally decided that my 300mm f/2.8 was just too heavy for me to lug around, so traded it in (at B&H) and bought this updated 80-400mm zoom. I had the prior version of this lens [the 'D' version] years ago but gave it to my son.

  • Summary: Well this isn't cheap...and it's not going to be the best choice for sports photography unless you happen to be outdoors with a lot of available light, but then I bought it for the reach in doing scenics.

Piece of JUNK

Joe, B&H Photo
17 May 2015
  • Excerpt: This lens is horrible. Sending it back tomorrow. Nothing in it sharp. At infinity useless. I got rid of the old 80-400 for the same reason. Shooting on a tripod with remote release at all f-stop ranges on both manual and auto focus. Simply blurry.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus
