Comments about Nikon 80-400mm AF-S Nikkor f4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens:
I had the old 80-400 until I could afford a 200-400 but had to ditch that as it was to heavy to hand hold. With the new 80-400 the focus snaps in very fast.Great Glass!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nikon 80-400 mm lens highly recommended
from North East (UK)
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
The Nikon 80-400 is super sharp, focus is very quick. Great for BIF photography. Fits into my camera bag. I use it with a Monopod and Gimbel for best results.
Just a great lens
It's just a great lens - have been considering this purchase for some time and really glad I eventually decided to buy. It's expensive but you do get value for money. Great quality pics with excellent detail. It is rather heavy though and after several hours use you do feel the need to put it down!
Nikon 80-400 afs vr. Worth every penny
from West midlands
I use this lens for birds, wildlife, and insects, for dragonflies and butterflies it is fantastic. Top image quality,I can use it wide open at 5.6 no problem at all, better than any previous telephoto I have owned. Used on dx and fx, it's an expensive purchase but you get what you pay for. I waited 3 years for Nikon to bring this out and bought one as soon as they hit the shelves. Current pricing makes it a really exellent purchase, very highly recommended.

good quality lens
Good quality robust lens with a good distance range that does allow hand holding, but better to use a tripod. Gets heavy afer lugging it around for a time which is to be expected, and not a criticism. Images are good quality, focusing quick and easy, no 'hunting' noticed.Foot is not as robust as I would have liked, but all in all very pleased with the product.

Nikon 80-400mm AF-S Nikkor f4.5-5.6G ED
from ST HELENS
If your budget runs to this lens you will find it brilliant the best lens in my kit.
(8 of 10 customers found this review helpful)
Bought this lens for shooting wildlife, and for larger animals it is simply brilliant; fast, sharp and good VR. Focal length without a teleconverter is a little short for birds, but with the high resolution of a full frame D800, cropping the image works fine.Feels a bit heavy after a full day in the field, but still lighter than many long teles.

About Me Photography Student

My best photographic buy in a long time.
For many years I have used the Nikon 200-400 lens for wildlife photography, both in the UK and abroad. It is a great lens but it is heavy and bulky. Add the 70-200 (my standard wildlife kit) and you have a very heavy and bulky outfit.The new Nikon 80-400G looked interesting and I decided to go for it as an alternative for the 70-200 / 200-400 combination when traveling. Having used it for some weeks now, I am absolutely amazed at the performance of this lens. It is incredibly sharp and comes VERY close to the 200-400 in every way (other than maximum aperture), and is not far behind the 70-200 - two highly regarded professional lenses. I can happily live with the poorer maximum aperture and minimal drop in picture quality in exchange for the weight saving and convenience of only having to carry a single lens. Far from using the 80-400G as an alternative when travelling it has become my regular wildlife lens. Focus is fast and accurate on my D800. It is compact and lightweight (in comparison with my 70-200 / 200-400 kit) and it can be hand held for long periods - something I certainly couldn't do with the 200-400!At a fraction of the cost of a 70-200 f/2.8 plus a 200-400 f/4.0 this is a great option and one that I can wholeheartedly recommend.

At last a rival the Canon 100-400L
from Northern Ireland
I bought this lens for bird photography on the move. It is very portable and a definate rival to the famous Canon 100-400 L. What took Nikon so long? This lens is perfect for bird photography and with the addition of a Nikon teleconverter can be boosted to around 600mm.I find quality excellent with good detail ald colours. focussing is fast and accurate.
