Nikon 400mm f/2.8G ED VR AF-S

400VR
Review Date: Jan 27, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fast and accurate AF Precise Optics VR a blessing when hand holding this behemoth Beautiful bokeh Very well built
Cons:
Two piece lens hood Pricey No wrench for changing feet

Great lens would not except nothing less in this class
I find that all the controls are well placed the sound level of the vr
system is quiet. AF is very fast and accurate image quality is as good at the edge as it is in the center. Great bokeh . Handles the 1.4 and 1.7 tc's well have not used a 2x tc with this lens so I can't say how it would be. Lens comes with two feet one for tripod use and another for mono pod use would be nice if Nikon supplied a wrench for changing the feet not that it is something that I change everyday.
The mono pod foot is low and stable the tripod foot is tall and does allow for some vibration. Don't care for the two piece lens hood.
I would like the trunk case for the lens to have enough room for a body to be left on the lens.
As for the weight of this lens yes it is heavy but not as heavy as it could be.
Pricey but worth the money
