The AF-S Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR is Nikon's long awaited successor to the venerable and now 13-year-old AF 80-400/4.5-5.6D VR. It covers a 5x zoom-range and has an improved optical design with quicker and quieter focusing and better image stabilisation - lest we forget the original was the first Nikkor to sport VR. It's one of the most highly anticipated updates in the Nikon catalogue but one that's unfortunately catapulted the price well beyond the 2000 EUR/USD mark; indeed it costs roughly double the old model in some regions. So the big question is: are the improvements really worth the money?

But first, who's it for? Most obviously it's ideal for sports, wildlife and even portraiture. It's also a perfect partner for a 24-70mm or 24-85mm standard zoom. With this combo you can almost seamlessly cover a 16.7x zoom-range from fairly wide-angle to a long tele with only two lenses. And while the 80-400mm is corrected for full-frame FX format bodies, you could equally use it on a cropped-frame DX-body where it gives you an equivalent 120-600mm coverage plus future-proofing should you upgrade to an FX-body at a later date. DX owners can also make a great twin lens kit with the 80-400mm and any of Nikon's longer general-purpose zooms like the DX 18-105mm or DX 16-85mm.

Key Features
1. FX-format compatible, 5x telephoto zoom lens covering the focal-length range from 80 to 400 mm

2. High optical performance is realized with super ED glass (x1) and ED glass (x4) elements

3. Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces flare and ghosting

4. VR (Vibration Reduction) minimizes camera shake by offering a shutter speed equivalent to 4.0 stops faster (at 400 mm; based on CIPA Standard)

5. Silent Wave Motor (SWM) offers quiet AF operation while achieving the highest level AF speed in this class

6. Three focus modes are available — A/M (autofocus with manual override, AF priority), M/A (autofocus with manual override, manual priority) and M (manual focus)

7. AF is possible even with a 1.4x teleconverter when attached to an f/8-compatible camera
