Summary: This Nikon AF-S Nikkor 200-400mm f/4G ED VR II is a hefty lens, but its telephoto reach and wide aperture make it a great choice for wildlife and sports photography, however on price its worth comparing to this version by Nikon here: http://amzn.to/1cY491M PROS: Very sharp.

Summary: I purchased a used version and couldn't be happier. It was "used" a few times by a Nikon Professional Services Pro a half dozen times and arrived in mint condition with no signs of use. The Nikon soft case it came in was the replacement by Nikon because the original was recalled for problems.
Summary: Fantastic wildlife and sports photography lens. I have used mine with the D300, D300, D800, D2x, D3, and D7100 cameras and autofocus was fast with all these cameras. Autofocus even works with the 1.4x teleconverter attached and the lens with the teleconverter attached fits inside the Nikon carry...
Summary: This was my first super telephoto lense. I have used the 70-200 for a couple of years for indoor sports. This lense is crazy good. Focus is super fast and crips. I needed this lense for outdoor sports and a 2x teleconverter on the 70-200 just wouldn't focus or keep the light right.
Summary: The Nikon AF-S VR G 200-400 mm f/4.0 zoom is a pro lens by any means. You may also call it a "tool", so you should buy it if you have a job in mind for it. I bought mine for airplane and airshow photography.
Summary: This is a large and heavy lens with lots of features. It appears to be well constructed. I have only taken a few photos with it, but so far it isn't as sharp as expected. The photos were taken on a tripod with very little chance of excessive vibration.
Summary: I just returned from shooting the 2010 olympics in Vancouver. This lens ended up being one of my go-to lenses. Obviously versatile with a nice zoom range and plenty fast. Great at the nordic skiing venue and sliding tracks but also a nice slalom and GS lens.
