The very highly anticipated and overdue replacement for the old and trusty AF VR Zoom-NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED Lens. The new lens comes as a nice upgrade with 5 ED Elements and Nano Crystal Coating as well as VR that is good up to 4 stops. Addition of Silend Wave Motor means that this lens is now compatible with Nikon DLSR Bodies. When paired with a DX body this lens becomes equivalent of 120-600mm, which is quite impressive if you ask me. Auto focus function has also been improved by adding MF Override. It means that you can fine tune your focus after camera's AF has been established. Also the focusing mechanism is completely internal now. One might ask: With all the improvements this lens offers there have to be something negative about it? Yes, It is now a little bigger, heavier and costs twice as much.
