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

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Vibration reduction works as advertised. Tack sharp. Opens up a new world of walk around telephoto opportunities.
    Not a lens for fast action in low light

    As I am not as young as I used to be and a larger percentage of my telephoto pictures were suffering from too much camera shake. This lens has solved that problem. This is a great walk around lens for wildlife, people, & landscape photos as you can easily get by without the need of a tripod or monopod. On my D70 this is a 160 to 600mm lens. I can shoot at 1/30 of a second and get consistently sharp results thereby negating the slow aperture of the lens. Sharpness & color are super. I am very pleased with this lens. My only regret is waiting so long to buy one.
