Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

Assembled for wildlife and nature photographers, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens with LensCoat Kit from B&H bundles the versatile 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 zoom lens with a pair of LensCoat Realtree Max4 HD camouflage covers for the lens, including one for the lens body and a Hoodie for the lens hood.

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

    Summing up several telephotos in one convenient zoom, the AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR from Nikon is a versatile lens covering portrait-length to super-telephoto focal lengths. Characterized by an advanced optical design, this lens uses one super extra-low dispersion element and four extra-low dispersion elements to noticeably reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range for improved clarity. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have also been applied to control flare and ghosting in order to increase contrast and color accuracy in bright and backlit conditions. A Silent Wave Motor AF system produces fast, near-silent focusing performance that suits both stills shooting and movie recording, which can instantly be manually overridden by simply turning the manual focus ring. Further contributing to photographing in fast-paced situations and difficult lighting, Vibration Reduction image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops.

    Portrait-length to super-telephoto zoom is designed for FX-format F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it will provide a 120-600mm equivalent focal length range.
    One super extra-low dispersion element and four extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
    Both a Nano Crystal Coat and a Super Integrated Coating have been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
    Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
    Vibration Reduction image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by four stops to benefit shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.
    Rotating tripod collar benefits working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.
    Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
    Compatible with optional AF-S Teleconverter TC-14, TC-17, and TC-20 teleconverters.

    Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 reviews

    AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 278.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatile zoom I purchased this to replace an 80-200 mm f2.8 zoom that my D800 could not adequately autofocus, despite attempts to adjust the calibration software using FoCal. The 80-400 has thus far been an excellent choice for wildlife shots, but has also been fun for closeup/bokeh and landscape shots. The lens produces sharp true-color photos. The VR works particularly well, allowing hand-held shooting at relatively slow shutter speeds (1/160). Thus far (3 months, 300 shots) I've been very happy with the lens. I suspect the problems noted by others about sharpness/ resolution are easily dealt with by adjusting the calibration for the autofocus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth The Price I use this lens for butterfly and dragonfly photography and it performs beyond expectations. I've also used it for landscape (with a tripod) and some wildlife photography and it does a very good job with both. It also works well as a macro with the Canon 77mm close-up lens. Very sharp, very nice bokeh (sorry most-liked negative reviewer)and the VR is outstanding, and I come from the everything shot on a tripod school. Yeah, it's expensive; yeah, it's a little heavy, but it's an 80-400 zoom with multiple ED glass and great VR. What do you expect? Ya got the money? Ya like shooting landscapes, wildlife and flying insects? Don't hesitate...buy this lens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two trips Two Success Stories Bought this lens for a couple of holidays. One to Morocco and one to Yosemite. Performed well in both situations. Morocco was a combitrip of bright skies and dark walks through the souks and medinas. It performed equally well in both scenarios. Walked around all day with it on a D800 with zero tripod availability. Tripod would have been better but was not disappointed with images. The trip to Yosemite had an equally good performance. I own a 200-400 as well but this lens gave me much more maneuverability. This is a heavy lens no question about it but it is a lightweight in comparison to the 2 to 4. I highly recommend moving forward if you are thinking about it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT LENS! Received this lens over a week ago and have used it almost every day since then. Got it mainly for wildlife photography and it has worked great. I had previously used a Nikon 1.7 teleconverter with my Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 lens as recommended by a well known Nikon blogger and there is no comparison, the 80-400mm is by far superior. I didn't get the Kirk bracket because so far I have pretty good luck using an arca mount on the bottom of the Nikon mounting bracket. I did learn to leave the VR on while it is mounted on a tripod especially when it is extended to 400mm. I am very pleased with the results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy With This, Good Value I was looking for a safari lens and was going to go with the 200-400/4 zoom, but was not looking forward to the expense and especially the size and weight. There didn't seem to be any alternatives. Then this lens appeared and I bought it. Haven't gone on safari yet, but think it is great so far. I think it is as sharp as my 70-200/2.8 (purely subjective) and is the same size. The autofocus is very fast. Like, too, the 72mm filter size, the same as other lenses I have. My only improvement request would be to not extend the barrel with zoom. Build quality is also very high. People complain about the price compared to the old model, but I think it is a good value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one amazing lens from Nikon! Had the older AF lens and traded it at B&H for the Nikon 200-5000 mm F5.6 and was very happy. After a while I had times when I wished it was weather sealed or at least not fearful of using wet hands on it. It is bulky and heave but takes outstanding images even shooting wide open. I decided that the newer AFS Nikkor 80-400 was worth a look. I find it ultra sharp even wide open, Also it is not all plastic like the Nikkor 200-500 mm. and is lighter. So I bought it. Completely pleased with it giving fantastic results on either my D7100 or D4. It is well balanced and the focus is extremely fast.The VR is fantastic. If you're looking for a zoom that will produce great images, is easy to carry and is usable in difficult weather then this is the lens for YOU!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced my Nikon 300mm f/2.8 Finally decided that my 300mm f/2.8 was just too heavy for me to lug around, so traded it in (at B&H) and bought this updated 80-400mm zoom. I had the prior version of this lens the 'D' version years ago but gave it to my son. I debated simply buying another of the 'D' lens, but I'd read about how much better this 'G' version is so I decided to try it despite the higher price. Great decision: this lens focuses quickly and accurately, and its VR seems to simply freeze the entire world while you take your photo. Very, very happy.
