Poor Nikon quality control

Adorama
27 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens and could not remove the rear lens cap. Even after using many utilities that open stuck jars to a huge plummer wrenched that removes the toughest bolts. Nikon customer care is indifferent to customer problems and thankfully i could return the lens. The main concern I have is where has the Nikon quality control?
  • Cons: Tough To Attach

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens today and the rear lens cap is welded to the lens. I could not get it off even with a huge plummer wrench. I have well over 12 nikon lenses and I am very disappointed with the quality control of this lens. And it is made in Japan, which in the past was not this poor.

  • Excerpt: 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!!!

  • Excerpt: I bought a 80-400 zoom lens for my Nikon and it was used , all you had to do was put it on a camera body and check it out , the auto focus didn't work, then after a big hassle to get my money refunded , you gave me only $260 trade in on a sigma 50-500 mm lens that I had paid $1000 for, you could have made it right buy giving me a better upgrade, as of now I'll never do any more bussiness with you, you should have tried a little harder and you would have a great customer

Un happy camper, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I waited a long time to finally get the zoom I've needed, you gave me a low ball price on an exchange lens ( sigma 50-500) and then sent me a defective lens that all you had to do was put it on a camera body to see auto focus didn't work.i am fuming mad and I think if you want my bussiness again you should give me a new lens at no additional cost.

Horrible Lens Breathing Will effect MANY shots!

Capt RB, Amazon
28 April 2013
  • Summary: After trying this lens I'm quite happy to keep my 300mm with TC and here's why. The new 80-400 is ONLY 400mm at infinity. Used at closer distances this lens drops down to around 250mm!!!!! Now before some long distance shooters start yelling, try to remember that MANY people will use this lens at closer distances.

  • Excerpt: Perhaps it's because I bought used hoping for a good product, I don't know, but I have been very disappointed in almost all of the shots I've taken with this lens. The focus is more often than not blurry. I get best results in manual mode but it's difficult to get a clear focus for distance shots. Would not buy this again (used).
