D4 with 80-400 VR II shoots BIF
Mar 24, 2013

Finally got a chance to take out my new 80-400 and shoot some birds.  My first impressions are that it is definitely a great and capable lens.  I think I need to do some fine tuning because I feel the images are not as sharp as the 200-400 or my 500VR but that may be because those lenses have been calibrated.

I can tell you that the speed and accuracy is very similar to the 200-400 and the 500.  I had the old 80-400 and it was a dog. It had the ability to produce sharp images but was so slow it was frustrating to use.  Not this one.  Very quick and with the calibration, I am sure will be a winner. It will likely replace many 200-400 out there. Here are a few shots from today.
