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.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Reviews
Well worth the price. The sharpness of this lens is amazing. Is a bit on the heavy side but with an over the shoulder camera strap it is very manageable. Great for nature outings! Oh, did I mention how sharp this lens is!!!!!
Love it....much lighter than my old Nikon 200-500 zoom I would recommend getting the Kirk collar to lower the profile/ CG
The lens will focus fast and give tack sharp pictures. I did a trade-in with a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. The trade-off was a lens with twice the focal length (400mm) but with f/4.5-5.6 Since I travel and wanted the extra focal length capability, this was a good purchase.
14-24, 24-70, 80-400 Is The Best Setup Going On
When I bought my D850 I put together some prime lenses and then the standards, a 14-24 a 24-70 and then took a detour from the standard set up of getting the 70-200. Instead I bought this 80-400 in its place. Well I am happy to report that I have definitely not made the wrong choice. I get an extra 200mm reach plus good vibration reduction a sharp ED lens and other settings not found on the 70-200. It is definitely the way to go for a three lens, one bag, setup.
This is a great lens.
Super sharp and very fast AF. Great range. Built solid. Use it on my Nikon D850.
Excellent wildlife lens
Nikon continues to make long range telephoto lens smaller and better quality. Its reasonably close focusing distance and long reach give it great flexibility. The f/4.5 is sufficient for the new cameras with the high and relative noise-free ISOs.
Sharp, rich, impressive images.
I have used this lens for about 3 months and I find it to be versatile, sharp and easily managed. It always seems to be in my bag. The AF is quiet and fast. Frankly, the resolution is better than I expected from a zoom. I put it on my D850 and have only taken it off once. For some reason, this lens and camera are a great match. I rarely use my tripod for wildlife with this lens. The VR is excellent. The weight and size are modest, so the lens is great for travel. The lens is sharp from 80 to 400mm. I am writing now because i just received yet another wow comment from a pro to a posted image. Additionally, I bought the Kirk collar and recommend it if it is within your budget. It is simply an addition that enhances your experience beyond the cost of it.
Replaced my Nikon 200-500mm telephoto and lens and lost 3 lbs of weight to carry!
