Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED AF VR Nikkor Review Round-Up

 

The Nikkor AF 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR is a decent performer but it also comes with a few glitches. Optically the lens shows a very good but not exceptional resolution characteristic except at 400mm at wide-open aperture where the borders could be a...

A 5x super-telephoto zoom with Vibration Reduction, ideal for hand-held shots of wildlife.

Good build quality; Vibration reduction; Not too heavy

Chromatic aberration at 400mm

Nikon AF-VR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED

 

This lens from Nikon fits in the group known as long telephoto zooms. With a zoom ratio of 5x, the lens is not pushing the optical laws too far in its capabilities and with its 3 ED elements and the help of Vibration Reduction technology (VR) we take a...

Good performance at the wide end.; VR works on static subjects.; Build quality is good and handling is natural

Pricy for the performance

REVIEW: Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF Nikkor

 

This super telephoto zoom from Nikon costs around £1168 and has a Vibration Reduction system that should allow hand-held shots to be taken at shutter speeds thee stops lower than without. The lens is an older design, and such doesn't have a motor...

Good build quality; Vibration reduction; Not too heavy

Optical performance not as good I I would expect from a lens of this calibre; Slow autofocus; Fiddly manual/autoocus control; Chromatic aberration at 400mm

Nikon appear to be in the middle of revamping their line of professional quality lenses at present, and I would imagine this focal range will be high on their list.

Good performance at the wide end.; VR works on static subjects.; Build quality is good and handling is natural

Long end performance disappointing.; VR not suitable for moving subjects; Pricy for the performance

For the price, Nikon should do better and this lens is probably due for an upgrade. The performance at the long end is disappointing to say the least and the vibration reduction has long since been superseded. Despite this, the lens is a capable...

I just got this lens and can\'t wait to use it. I am planning a trip West to the National Parks and wanted a telephoto lens that was affordable.

The only long range zoom you need

 

This is a great lens, I never feel the need to use a tripod, If you need a long telephoto look your search is over

Fine ProSumer Lens

 

The lens focuses slowly, but does achieve a sharpness when stopped down to f\/8 that matches my 16-85. Excellent long zoom, VR works well. Sharp photos with careful focusing. It does seem to run the camera battery down faster than the 16-85. It\'s...
