Nikkor 80-400mm zoom5 Posted by: from: on this is an excellent lens that compliments my original 18-55mm lens. It is relatively easy to handle for weight and ease of adjustment without a tri pod. it takes excellent pictures and is fast enough to stop action photographing planes landing or other action sports events.

Great Lens for what it was made to do5 Posted by: from: on Love this lens. Much faster than the D lens. This G lens seems to be a little sharper and definitely faster in focusing. Great for either tripod or hand held. Used it at an airshow hand held and worked great. Just a bit heavy, but easy to handle. The pictures shown was from an airshow and taken with an 80-400mm Nikon G lens.

Great moderate to long lens5 Posted by: from: on With a 5x zoom and generally sharp overall this lens is an improvement over the previous model. Works with all digital cameras and the newest model film cameras 35mm.

Great range but bigger & heavier than expected5 Posted by: from: on A brilliant lens with a great range, even more so on DX. It's bigger than I expected but not surprising given the quality it is, significantly larger than my Nikon 70-300 VR lens. The VR II on the 80-400 is a step above anything I've tried, no problems shooting handheld at 400mm FL. I picked this up at Union Square in NYC for 45% off the MSRP so was a no-brainer, not so sure I'd buy again at full price though...

Great lens5 Posted by: from: on I have only used this lens for 11 days and have been impressed with the clarity I'm getting from pic's when hand held. I used this with a D7100 set ISO 1000 at the San Diego Zoo on Sat. and was amazed with the pictures. I'm pretty steady but will generally have a few pic's that are out of focus from movement. Out of over 400 pic's I had 1 out of focus pic. I'm looking forward to see how this lens does with birds in flight :-)

Loving It5 Posted by: from: on It works great for macro. Love the new lens. Only thing is the price is really expensive, far more than the Nikon 7100 that I use it with. Crisp pictures. Fast focusing, so good for motion pictures. It is a big lens, and a bit heavy, but that's alright. Easy to use, if you know what you're doing.

In Love With Lens5 Posted by: from: on This lens has exceeded my expectations. My plans were to buy another lens that takes macro pictures besides this one. However, as I'm learning to use this lens, I am finding that I can take excellent macro pics with this. The VR works great. It's very easy to use. I can take pictures of the moon handheld at 400mm. Pictures are very crisp. Great resolution. Very fast focusing, so great for taking action shots. The only real cons are that it's a heavy lens and it's an expensive lens.

awesome results5 Posted by: from: on super results, my first semi expense dive in. At first it seemed a little large and heavy, you will need a big/ sturdy tripod and head for it, which is not always practical. However, I used it on a pontoon boat on the slough... hand held and it was amazingly easy. photos were good. Realizing that this is the lower price bracket for the 300 to 500 that everyone else was shooting with, I was amazed with the ease of use and results. great stepping stone !!!!!!! and maybe the forever choice.

Beauty and the Beast4 Posted by: from: on The lens is a beast but I love it. It's big, a little unwieldy if you have small hands or not a lot of strength but if you can learn to manage it, it's great. I'm petite at five feet and 90 pounds, but I can handhold this lens and shoot fine, just takes some practice. Yes it does chatter when shooting full out but it's not a nuisance, unless you need it perfectly quiet. Doesn't weigh much more than a 70-200 but is fatter. Aperture range is fine for daytime.

Nikon's Best Quality Zoom Available5 Posted by: from: Polk City on The reviews on this lens are the best. The internal motor is quiet and fast focusing. The stabilization is second to none. The sharpest zoom available. Edge to edge sharpness is incredible. This lens separates the amateur and the professional. Worth every dollar.
