Review Date: May 31, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fast autofocus , sharp wide open , Build like a tank.
Cons:

What a lens !!. I just bought this lens about a month ago, for action and portrait photography. In one simple word:AMAZING. I took some head shots of my 6 month old daughter, the lens is so sharp wide open , i don t even PP on the computer. I was just amazed at the quality of the color, sharpness, and bokeh of this lens. I own also the 400 2.8 vr , which was the lens i mostly shot with, but now the 200 took it s place. Owning the 400, weight is not an issue for me since i am used to heavy lenses. If you can afford this lens just go for it , don t even think about it, it can not get any better than this. Update. 01/04/2014. Just bought the newer version vr2 and the lens is as spectacular as the first version. It has become my all time favorite glass and I have owned a lot of pro glass . On my d4 it is just amazing.

Pros: Very sharp wide open
Cons:

I bought two copies of the incredible 400 2.8 vr. Let me start by saying, i shoot mostly sports, action, and some wildlife. This lens for all this type of shooting is the best super telephoto lens from nikon. It is sharp sharp sharp. Wide open 2.8 the lens is just amazing. Auto focus speed is extremly fast, and love the bokeh wide open. I use the lens with tc-20 e iii and my d3s , and 5.6 looks fantastic. It slows down autofocus a bit, but very usable in good light. It is a huge lens , but with proper long lens technique, and some serious legs (gitzo), amazing results. Expensive but worth every peny. I simply love this.
