Outstanding Lens

Dean, B&H Photo
4 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I bought this lens in March 2013. I have taken many images with it and have been very pleased with its sharpness, focus speed and especially its durability. The images taken with this lens can be cropped in very closely and it always retains its maximum sharpness.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction

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.

Auto focus is super fast and its light enough to carry around

  • Summary: This lens is all they say it is. I waited until the price dropped a little bit and it made it worth it. Auto focus is super fast and its light enough to carry around. Great for birds in flight..I love it..

Sharp and fast enough

Steven D. Yee, Amazon
8 April 2015
  • Summary: Was worried that this lens might not be fast enough (I currently use an f2.8 80-200) but I needed the reach, for most of my outdoor sports shooting this has been a great lens (especially in crop mode) and many of the indoor arenas have been more than bright enough for this lens.
