Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S Nikkor

Review Date: Dec 31, 2015 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Solid, Great AF, superb IQ, VR is best i have used
not really seeing it

I am a professional sports photog..have used every pro lens Nikon has ever made. Had Nikon send me one for an evaluation..and i am really impressed..I used the 200-500mm for a football game in daylight..and put it away after 10 min..enough said..i think its junk

However this lens is right there with the 200-400..i am not kidding. The IQ on my D4 and D3s is as good as any zoom lens i have shot with..and i can hand hold it..which is awesome. Shot at 400mm with a shutter speed at 1/ didnt miss. Tracked players in football and beach volleyball moving at hyper speed..didnt miss. Used at 80mm for some portraits wide open..IQ is as good as my 70-200mm at same f4.5..

Overall I was not expecting this from this lens..For my IndyCar work this could make my life real easy and not have to carry 2 bodies with a 70-200 and a 200-400 on them..and when your talking about 9 hr days and miles of walking that is a BIG deal..
