Product Highlights
  • Nikon F Mount
  • FX Format Compatible
  • 120-600mm Equivalent in DX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/4.5-40
  • Vibration Reduction Image Stabilization
  • 5 ED Elements, Nano Crystal Coating

  • Internal Focusing Mechanism
  • Nine-Bladed Diaphragm
  • Accepts 77mm Filters

The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens is a versatile telephoto zoom lens that is compatible with both FX and DX-sized image sensors. This lens features an extensive zoom range of 80-400mm (DX equivalent: 120-600mm) that encompasses both portrait and long-reaching telephoto focal lengths to suit work with a variety of subjects. Capture portraits with softly blurred backgrounds and get close-up telephoto shots of faraway subjects with or without a tripod.

The lens construction integrates one super ED (extra-low dispersion) and four ED glass elements to help minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range and contribute to higher image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity. The Nano Crystal Coat reduces surface reflections, helping to prevent lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and light transmission.

Built-in Vibration Reduction image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake up to the equivalent of four shutter speed steps. A dedicated VR setting for tripods is available for producing the sharpest imagery possible without countering the effects of the image stabilization system.

In addition to regular autofocus and manual focus, two other focusing modes are available: A/M (Auto-Priority Manual Mode) enables an easy transition from autofocus to manual during AF operation, while M/A (autofocus with manual override, MF priority) allows switching from AF to MF with virtually no lag time by turning the focusing ring. Transitioning between these focusing modes can be done quickly and precisely.

The SWM (Silent Wave Motor) focusing system uses ultrasonic vibrations to provide quick, quiet, smooth and precise auto focusing performance that is ideal for use in video and subject-tracking. Internal focusing maintains an overall compact lens form-factor, enables faster performance, and allows for a closer focusing distance.

80-400mm Focal Length
Wide zoom range enables portraits with softly blurred backgrounds and close-up telephoto shots, including macro work at a minimum focus distance of 5.7'
Aperture Range of f/4.5-40
The lens' aperture range goes from a maximum of f/4.5-5.6 to a minimum of f/32-40
ED Glass Elements
One super ED (extra-low dispersion) and four ED glass elements help reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range and produce higher image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity
SIC and Nano Crystal Coatings
The multilayer Super Integrated Coating is applied to the individual optical elements, as is a Nano Crystal Coat to minimize surface reflections across a wide range of wavelengths and prevent lens flare and ghosting--resulting in greater overall contrast and light transmission
Vibration Reduction
Built-in image stabilization counteracts the effects of camera shake, allowing you to shoot at shutter speeds up to four times slower than would otherwise be possible. A dedicated VR setting for tripods gives you the sharpest imagery possible without working against the image stabilization system
Focusing Modes
In addition to regular autofocus and manual focus, two other focusing modes are available: A/M (Auto-Priority Manual Mode) enables an easy transition from autofocus to manual during AF operation, with a low possibility of unintentional switching, while M/A (autofocus with manual override, MF priority) allows switching from AF to MF with virtually no lag time by turning the focusing ring--letting you seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the camera's viewfinder. Transitioning between these focusing modes is controlled by a rocker switch on the lens barrel for quick switching and greater precision depending on the subject matter being photographed
SWM (Silent Wave Motor)
Utilizes ultrasonic vibrations to provide quick, quiet, smooth and precise auto focusing performance that is ideal for use with video and subject-tracking applications
Internal Focusing
Employed in order to maintain an overall compact lens form-factor and to produce overall faster performance. The lens will not change in size during AF operation, enabling a closer focusing distance without the danger of damaging the lens' front element. Distance information is displayed on an analog scale through a sealed window.
77mm Filter Thread
Accepts optional 77mm filters

    Well, I have had the new Nikon 80-400mm for a week now and I am impressed, to say the least! Here's some of my experiences so far. The image posted here is of nestling Stellar's Jays, handheld, sitting in a chair, TC1.4, ISO 3200, 1/60sec at f8, VR set to "NORMAL" with the D800. The nest was under the eves of a porch and was dark but did have some reflected light coming in from the windows in front of it, you can see a shadow above and behind the birds. I did nothing to this image, just converted the raw in ACR with no raw presharpening and sized to fit BPN constraints. I don't know how the image stacks up to the products of higher end lenses but I do know that I would not have been able to produce it with ANY OF MY PAST EQUIPMENT!

    I have used it exclusively with the TC1.4.

    I can tell that it is a little heavier that the old version but not significantly for walking around with handheld (a shoulder strap is recommended though).

    Although I haven't really got to use it for much BIF, I can say the the AF with the tc is way faster than the old version (which wouldn't accept a tc) and at least as fast as the Nikon 300f4+tc1.4.

    I shot some really low light (in the Sierra deep forest shadows) and had no problem AF'ing. It is really nice to be able to MF while in AF mode to rough in the focus then let the AF take over.

    THE VR ROCKS! Compared to the old version, this VR is amazing to me, even with the 1.4 attached. My old version's VR didn't even exist compared to this new version!!! I was able to get sharp images down to 1/60sec handheld, providing the subject didn't flinch!

    I shot some small butterflies at close focus and the combo worked well but the lens does "breath" at the close focus, I have read that it losses focal length at CF and it does, but it was still nice to be able to focus on subjects under 5 feet away!

    My D800 calculates the focal length with the tc1.4 as 550mm? Should be 560mm, according to my math skills? Oh Well!

    I can't wait to get out and do some BIF with and without the tc.

    I LOVE THIS LENS (so far)!

    I have been waiting for this lens for a long time. I own the previous version, a practical lens but with many limitations. The lens is ergonomically good, although I expected the zoom to be internal rather than external like its predecessor. The focusing is very fast although a bit clunky ̶ it is noisy and it tends to search, although not as bad as its predecessor. My biggest disappointment was the resolution. For a lens of this price, I expected a crisp, sharp picture. I compared some of the shots with others taken with my 300mm F4.0 with the 1.4 teleconverter (a 420mm equivalent) and the latter left the 80-400 in the dust. Maybe I got a bad sample, but I sent the lens back.

      My wife and I share this Nikkor lens for long zoom shots. The image quality is amazing! It is a bit heavy, but I expected that from a long zoom lens. I was pleasantly surprised with the pictures my wife shot using this lens "hand held" capturing action shots. Amazing.

          I use this lens to shoot wildlife, primarily birds, attached to a Nikon D7100 Body. I had been using the original 80 x 400 lens for many years before buying this new model. This lens does focus faster but frankly, my end image results are not noticably better than the results I achieved with my old lens. And the truth is, I haven't figured out if this end result is primarily related to the camera body, the new lens, or me, the photographer. It could be I'm just not very good.

          This lens is amazingly sharp. It focuses very well in low light. If you photograph very fine print (say at 40 feet) and then magnify the image to the maximum (on a D810 Nikon), the characters remains sharp with a clear view of the paper fibers.This lens is not light. You have a real hunk of glass in your hands but it can be easily moved about or held still.With slow shutter the VR yields motion-free images at speeds that would normally result in blur.I've only owned this lens for several weeks but is definitely a go-to lens for many applications.

              Amazing lens that is incerdibly sharp throughout the range. Its auto focus is incerdibly fast, and quite despite it misfiring a little often. Its heavier than I would have liked but thats not a huge issue and its something I can work around. I use this lens for sports and nature photography and its perfect for that. Its VR helps alot and could theorectically be used handheld even in low light.

                    Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens:

                    I bought this to replace my Nikon 200-400mm that I've had for years. I will use this lens mostly hand held for birds in flight, airplane photos and wildlife like whales from a boat.
                    It is much lighter and easier to hand hold then the 200-400, but I do lose a stop or two.
                    So far the lens it very sharp and quick to focus. My only complaint is the tripod ring which seems very flimsy and will wobble when mounted on a tripod. I may upgrade the ring to a Really Right Stuff after market ring which I assume will be more sturdy with less wobble. RRS makes high quality precision equipment, but they are not cheap.
                    All in all I do recommend this lens, especially for hand held action.

                    Comments about Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens:

                    Let me get to the points:1. A very wide range zoom (5X) with reasonable aperture at the far end.2. Optical performance: This is the 2nd Nikon lens feature a Super ED element (the only other product using it is the 200mm F2G) which result in good control in diffraction. Add to it the nano coating makes images reasonable sharp.3. The overall barrel is oversized, this maybe difficult for those who had smaller hands. The zoom range is well damped. The filter size stays at 77mm.4. In lower contrast situations, the AF tends to hunt. Under bright sun or well defined lighting conditions, AF is fast.5. Though relatively expensive, this lens replace either one or two lenses in your arsenal depending whether you have the originl 80-400 (which is not AFS), or it replaces your 80-200 or 70-200, and the 200-400 in one lens. If this is your consideration, you save big bucks by taking just one lens, let alone the weight and space saving you get from it. Especially if you shoot consistently into the 300-400mm range, the one stop difference could be compensated by either setting higher ISO, or take advantage of the VR improved function. If the F 4.0 aperture on the 200-400mm is deemed inadequate, your only option is to go big with the 400mm F2.8G.6. The VR function is quite good,7. Because of its smaller aperture, the darker viewfinder image is to be expected, especially if you are used to the F2.8 or larger aperture lens.8. Sharpness throughout the zoom range is more than adequate for the job.9. For some strange reason, as an expensive lens as this is, the tripod collar is just so so. You may opt for some aftermarket companies that produces either lower profile foot or flip open collar clamp for a more secure fit, but then you have to pay for that, but worth some consideration especially if you have to pack your camera and lens combo tight.10. The Nano coating is a major reason why I get this (also the Super ED element). It works so well that I have no ghost or flare by shooting into the sun.11. The bokeh is quite nice.

                    Used mostly for wildlife and outdoor photography. Excellent and clear , new for me am still getting used to it . Notice needs a lot of light. Also, best with tripod or monopod as I'm not steady on handheld.

                    The AF-S Nikkor 80-400 mm lens offers more options for the photographer who wants to minimize their lenses on extended adventures. I used a 2X teleconverter to increase those options with great results in photographing birds and wildlife at great distances. Definitely need a tripod/monopod when taking long distance pictures. Photos are high resolution and great quality.

                      Upgraded from the 80-00mm f/4.5-5.6D VR lens. No comparison. Much faster. Big improvement over the previous version of this lens. but much more costly. With the improved VR I can now hand hold this lens if needed. Clarity of the lens is much improved. Sharp.

                        It performs as expected in my preliminary testing and shooting. It doesn't have the feel of my (very heavy) pro lenses but for getting through airports to and from Africa as carry on it'll do the trick. I'll update this review when I get back from Botswana next month if I find out anything that hasn't already been covered in other reviews.

                          I have used this lens for all sports action coverage: Football, baseball, basketball. golf and volley ball. I disagree with the negative tracking comments. I have had nothing but success in tracking fast action sports. I also love the solid feel and the con comment: of heavy weight. It feels solid and any experienced photographer can handle the weight. Now that I think about it, this is the best I've felt about any lens I've used. I've never had a submitted photograph rejected for news publication. Try it, you'll love it! Thanks, Richard.
