Images from new Nikon 80-400mm
5 months ago

Taken with tripod ISO 400 at f/8

I was hoping this new lens would replace my Nikon 300mm f/4 which I use with a 1.4x converter. Sadly I can't get the same results with the same converter on the 80-400mm. This image was taken without using the converter. It is very sharp but it won't give me the extra bit of reach I was hoping for.

I'm still not sure what benefits I'll get from this lens over my 300mm f/4. I suppose I need to get out and use it a bit more to justify the £2,000 outlay
