Having just changed to nikon i find this lens on par if not better than the same or similar focal length from the other main manufacture .Not to heavy easy to hand hold and very sharp on my D810.Good for wildlife, insects and general stuff.

About Me Keen amateur, Keen enthusiast
I bought this lens for use at motor racing and other outdoor activities. It is quite heavy as you would expect given the amount of high quality glass inside but worth it as the quality is outstanding.I was able to take advantage of a nikon cash back promotion when I bought it which reduced the price by £275.00. All in all no regrets and look forward to taking some great pictures with it.Thoroughly recommended.

My interest is taking pictures of wild birds etc at various UK nature reservesAfter deciding that my 70-300mm wasn't powerful enough for wild birds I bought a Sigma 150-500. Unfortunately pictures taken at 500m wide open were too soft. Certainly improved as the lens was stopped down to f8. Unless it was an untypically bright day that meant high ISO settings and increased grain.The Sigma was replaced by a Nikon 300mm F4 (old version). The lens lacked VR but with sensible shutter speeds it produced very sharp pictures – particularly birds in flight. It was also still impressive used with a Nikon 1.4x teleconverter. However, I really missed the versatility of a zoom – particularly when something of interest was standing too near or too far away.I was seriously considering one of the new Sigma 150-600mm lenses. However, having tried the sport version at this year's photo show, I felt it was just too heavy to lug round a nature reserve for two or three hours. What appealed about the Nikon 80-400mm was that the sharpness doesn't tail off noticeably at the 400mm end and that it is a reasonable nice weight and length for lugging round. The cash back offer tipped the balance.I am really pleased with the lens. Focus speed and sharpness are very good and results handheld are impressive. It is a perfect lens for walking round a nature reserve with. If I need anything more powerful I plan to hire it. Excellent service from WEX, as usual.

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!

Nikon 80-400 mm lens highly recommended
from North East (UK)
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.
