Nikon 400mm f/2.8D IF-ED AF-S II Nikkor

Review Date: May 22, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: The fastest AF of any Nikon lens I have tried, even faster then the 300mm F2.8 VR. As sharp as the 300mm VR, incredibly smooth details and Bokeh. Handes the TC17EII superbly, with the TC20 it is a bit soft. Pound for pound the best long lens that Nikon has.
Heavy, REALLY Heavy. Stupid 2 stage construction of the hood with a dumb screw on connection to the lens, I absolutely hate it. The stock lens foot is very prone to vibrations. I have a Wimberlley foot on mine, much, much better.
