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.

A long overdue CORKER
I have been waiting for an updated version of this Lens for years. Mine arrived today. Garden tested on Birds. Combined with my D4 and 1.4 Converter I can't imagine a more perfect and versatile combo for my frequent travels to undertake wildlife photography in Africa (or indeed anywhere).
