Best alternative replacement...

Zonian64, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Replaced the original Nikon lens collar, w/tripod mount.<br />The Kirk version provides two screw holes for mounting an attachment plate, with a built-in Arca-Style base plate. <br />The quick release action allows you to remove the collar without taking the lens off the camera, when mounted to the lens.<br />Also provides maximum support and bracing due to double contact points with the lens.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction

Love it!

  • Excerpt: I love this new lens collar. The original one had play in it when mounted on my tripod - this one is rock solid. It also makes the lens easy to carry and shoot hand held. I highly recommend it. It's an excellent compliment to my Kirk mono-pod head that I use with this lens.

Outstanding Lens

Adorama
25 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I was pleasntly surprised at how well this lens performs. The autofocus works well even with a 2x teleconverter on my D800. I was expecting to need a tripod to use this lens, but found I can generally hand hold it and still get crisp images.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus

My most used lens

  • Summary: I shoot mostly wildlife so this lens has become my go-to walk around lens. Outstanding image quality and light weight. Fast focus and great image stabilization. It stayed on my Nikon D800 throughout Yellowstone and the Tetons.

Rock Solid

Blues2cool, Nikon
1 May 2014
  • Summary: Very well constructed sharp at close to 400 mm. I consider this a must have lens for wildlife and day light sports. It focuses fairly quickly on my D 700 and I don't consider it a soft focus. At 46 oz it requires a monopod or a tripod to keep it steady. When possible I shoot at higher shutter speeds 500 and above. If your wondering should I buy this lens or should I spend the really big money for the F2.8 200-400 if you have 6000.00 by all means get the F 2.8.

Great lens

  • Excerpt: I use this lens for wildlife photos and birdwatching. Good lens bag since it won't be traveling in my camera bag (it's too big). Usual Nikon lens quality and performance. It's getting a little on the heavy side for hand held shooting (my preferred method for birding) but it's worth the extra effort.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

80-400 VR

  • Excerpt: The lens is compatible with my Nikon 1.7 TC in all aspects, though you then nearly double the f stop. This gives me two ranges of shooting. <br /><br />I will need to buy a lens plate though.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus

  • Summary: This lens works very nicely with my D7100. I have taken some action shots that would have been impossible with any of my old lenses.
