Lens Review: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR

 

A well-regarded telephoto zoom lens gets a much-needed update, making it sharper and more stable.

Excellent upgraded image stabilization; exceptional optical performance through much of its zoom range; smooth, accurate focusing; solid, weather-sealed build

Steep launch price tag

Nikon 80-200mm f/4 AI-S Review Round-Up

 

This is the best manual focus telephoto zoom for Nikon. Of course if you can find one of the huge (95 mm filter) manual focus 80 - 200mm f/2.8s don't let me stop you, but for my bag I'd get one of these if I wanted a manual focus tele zoom. … READ FULL...

Nikon 80-400 AF Zoom Lens

 

First, the good news: An 80 to 400 zoom is a wonderful idea. The fact that it is well balanced, lightweight, and sharp adds to the fun. Put it on the digital D1 and we are talking about a 120mm to 600mm zoom-now that's impressive!

Review Nikon AF-S 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR (N FF)

 

April 2013, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR was introduced. A few weeks ago we published our Nikon 80-400mm VR review with a Nikon D5200. Especially for wildlife or birding, this lens forms a nice couple with a Nikon DX camera, like the...

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

 

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...
