Comments about Nikon Nikkor AF 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 D ED VR Zoom Lens (Black):

I always have it connected to my cam body.
I shoot wildlife and landscape but I have had great results with it catching the grandkids playing while on Nikon D300. Got it stuck in my car window
while trying to photograph a wolf so I missed the shot.
I do use it more than my fixed 300mm prime and love the results.

  • Poor focus in low light

Comments about Nikon Nikkor AF 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 D ED VR Zoom Lens (Black):

Several wildlife and sports opportunities have presented themselves. The 80-400 ED VR lense on my D80 have performed superbly. Long time professionals have taken a doubletake at some of the shots that this system has produced. I think my brother (a grey lense user) may be a little jealous of the results too. He hasn't admitted it yet, but I can see it in his eyes.

The only frustration has been it's poor performance in lower light situations. But just knowing where it doesn't work fixes that.

Great product that produces great results.

Comments about Nikon Nikkor AF 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 D ED VR Zoom Lens (Black):

Great lens for fairly bright shooting. Got caught without my tripod when I came upon Bighorn Sheep on a trip in Utah. Used my wife's shoulder and the VR really worked. At 400mm (600) on my D200 it was a pretty shakey scene...but it worked.

I have owned this lens for 3 months now, using it on a D300. Getting crisp photos of various wildlife. Pros: great telephoto lens, durable, well constructed, like the tripod adapter. Cons: lens is a little heavy for my favorite activity of backpacking, acceptable for short to medium hikes.

Best of Times & Worst of Times

By Threshershark

from Salt Lake City, UT

About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Excellent bokeh
  • Lightweight
  • Portable

Cons

  • Lack of AF-S
  • Slow Focus

Best Uses

  • Still or Slow Subjects
  • Well-Lit Scenes
  • Wildlife

Comments about Nikon Nikkor AF 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 D ED VR Zoom Lens (Black):

This would have been an impeccable lens with the addition of AF-S. Focus speed is adequate on my D200, but in the low-light conditions of the golden hour when I often find myself shooting wildlife, this lens can sometimes be frustrating. I have missed some potentially great shots where focus hunts in these types of conditions, and often go to my 70-300 AF-S VR under those conditions.

On the upside, I love that Nikon made this lens so light and portable as compared to something like the Canon 100-400 USM IS. It is an ideal size for a lens of this focal length. It turns out great images when everything comes together.

Good Daytime Sports Lens

By Sam's Dad

from Vancouver WA

About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Ease of Use
  • Large Zoom
  • Large Zoom Range

Cons

  • Heavy

Best Uses

  • Sports/Action
  • Wildlife

Comments about Nikon Nikkor AF 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 D ED VR Zoom Lens (Black):

I bought this lens to shoot outdoor (daytime) sports. It continues to impress me on well lit days. Shooting afternoon football here in the Pacific NW you can reach pretty low light and rain awfully early but I can stand in one endzone and cover most of the field. For softball I can shoot from center field and capture the batter and catcher expressions. It has worked extremely well for me.
The 4.5-5.6 is pretty serious, I generally shoot in apiture mode but under pretty well lit environments. I'm going to have to switch to a 70-200 F2.8 lens to capture any night games.
