While I hope to create a full Nikon 400mm f/2.8G 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...

Nikon 400mm f/2.8G IF-ED AF-S VR Nikkor review by winkyphoto

 

Blown away by this. The image quality is ridiculously good. It resolves to a pixel on my D300. AF is perfect (but that is also camera-related) and ludicrous-speed fast. NO CA evident anywhere. Close to perfect. Fast. f2.8 gives great options with DOF....

Sharp as a pin. Much better than 12Mp DX format in my D300. Fast. Battleship build

None. Big, though. Heavy, but look what you're getting

I was actually looking for a 400 f/5.6 qhen I came across this one. For some extra bucks I got the Tc-301 2x TC form this guy who was switching to Canon. I love user who switch to Canon! :-) Mine is actually AI, not AIS, but there's no difference...

Speed, optical quality, weight (for this kind of beast, 3Kg isn't that much...), fits in my Lowepro MiniTrekker, excellent tripod collar. Works great with TC 301, works not as well but still very good with my Kenko 1.5 TC.

Hood is perhaps a little short.

Was lucky to find a very clean example of the 400 f/2.8 on eBay, and am elated with its performance. Wide open, it resolves (from my tests) at least 68 l/mm center and edge, and that's all the 14nx's sensor can do. These big Niks were designed for...

The big Nikkors are all built to last a lifetime, and there's little to go wrong with these, provided the internal basket mechanism holds up OK, and it should. They are outstanding resolvers and quick focusing, since they are designed for manual use.

Heavy, awkward to lug around (but aren't they all?) Lack of AF is generally seen as a weakness, but this depends largely on your application--it could be a virtue, when considering longetivity, freedom from maintenance, weight and size--not to mention...

Very sharp. Wonderful de-focused character. Silent and very fast focus. Built like a brick you know what.

Costs a fortune. Weighs a ton.

As a serious amateur who did not want to spend $6000-$10000 on a new D Nikkor big glass lens, I opted for this lens used. I use it primarily for sports and wildlife (with a TC-301 2X converter). Looking through the viewfinder of a D1H or an F5 with...
