Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF

Review Date: Nov 11, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,150.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: Sharp, VR works, Compact size
Focus is slow, but this isn't an indoor lens. Wish it was an f/4

This is a great lens. I had never used VR before renting this lens. I was trying to decide between this lens and the Sigma 100-300 f/4 + 1.4X. The fact that I take a majority of my pictures hand held, I wanted to try out VR. The VR worked better than I could have imagined. See the picture below.
Taken hand held, 1/30s @ 400mm.
I would buy this lens again.
