Nikon 400mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Nikkor Lens Review

 

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...

Awesome Lens!

 

I bought the Nikon 400mm 2.8D AF-S lens used this year (2010) and I could not be any happier with a lens. This lens is realatively light for a 400mm lens. It feels lighter than the Canon 400mm f/2.8 lens that I was hefting for the last couple of years....

A Cracker

 

Went mad and bought this. Had it a week. Its stunning and a Custom Bracket Gimbal Head for the tripod make it featherweight to use. Just got to work out how to travel with this Beast. A 2x Converter makes it magic for birds.

Excellent Sports Lens

 

I have been using this lens for 12 months. The image quality is superb and good contrast when used with D3. I use it with 1.4 and 1.7 teleconverters for cricket photography, with the 1.4 converter giving better image quality than the 1.7. As the...

This is one serious lens!

 

I have had this lens for a few months and I\'m loving it! Sure, it\'s a very heavy beast - be prepared to spend a fair whack on tripod, head, bag, etc. I also recommend replacing the tripod foot with a Kirk one. It works very well in reasonable light...

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
