Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 200-400mm f/4G AF-S VR Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for the posting of those standard test results.
Conclusion: This lens is heavy and expensive! Having said that, it is superbly engineered, both mechanically and optically and puts most primes in its focal range in the shade. The autofocus is so quick (on the right camera) that it will not only track, but catch up with things like fast birds flying directly towards you. If you can warrant the outlay, you will not be disappointed, whoever you are.
Pros: Superb optical quality, Excellent build quality, Very rapid AF with good over-ride facility, Helpful vibration reduction.
