I presently have a D750 and a D7100. I am considering selling the D7100 and getting a D500. I love the D750 with my Nikon 80-400mm AFS  lens for its fast autofocus for BIFs, but want a bit more reach. The 80-400 on my D7100 gives me the additional reach, but at the sacrifice of slower autofocus speed and small buffer.  Does anyone have any experience with a D750 and a D500 using a Nikon a 80-400 mm AFS lens insofar as autofocus speed acquisition and accuracy is concerned? I normally shoot...

Hello, I want to buy a 80-400mm mainly for landscape. I'm not intersting at all about electronique stuff like : AF speed, VR performance, silent AF... What what interested me most is sharpness, lens flare and image quality. i want to know if the newest af-s 80-400mm is superior or both lens are close thank you

I do some sports photography (mostly sailing) and often shoot with my Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 zoom.  A year or so ago I purchased the Nikon 80-400 f/4.5-5.6.  After a year it was a little sloppy and fuzzy so it went back to Nikon for a tune-up and now it's performing quite well.   I recently decided to try a prime lens on the assumption that it would be sharper than the zoom, so I rented the 300mm f/4 lens and gave it a shot.  I took a whole bunch of comparison shots, with both a Df and a D800,...

Planing phase on rebuilding my action (aviation - motorsports) setup after had everything stolen some months ago. I was working with 200-400 VR1, TC-14E II & D7100 / D800E. Unfortunately i think i cant invest, (not yet at least) this amount of money so fast, while though i need to have a similar performance system ready for the new season of my action projects starting at spring. I am speculating if image quality, AF accuracy , consistency and speed, is equal between Sigma 150-600 (probably...

I'm non-pro, obviously, and have a D800E which I'm slowly growing into - I come from having fallen for photography with the GF1 and M43rds. Once I started to bump up against the (then) limits of the system I then took the somewhat nuts step of going hardcore FF with the D800E... Right now, I have the Nikon 50mm 1.8, Nikon 85mm 1.8 and Sigma 35mm. I chose primes partly to not overwhelm myself with all the options at once, partly for weight, partly for quality/cost. I've tended to concentrate...

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I want to get a tele lens for shooting the full moon and also air show or sports. I am trying to decide between this two lenses and was wondering who choose which lens and why. So far I can see: NIKON 80-400mm VR (new model): * Possibly sharper, need feedback on that. * Shorter and less wider range than Sigma 50-500mm * Double the price of Sigma * Lighter than Sigma * Nikon lens (Possibly better QC) * Better Stabilisation (Not sure) Sigma 50-500mm OS: *...

I know, the 300/4 VR doesn't exist yet, but there has been a lot of discussion about it and I think there is a good chance it will eventually be introduced.  VR would be a great addition just as AF-S was on the 80-400. Background: I use a D800E; for telephotos I have a 70-200/2.8 VR I (good for sports but not landscapes), a 70-200/4 VR (great at many things and smaller/lighter), and a 300/4 AF-S (great quality, near-macro focusing, 400/5.6 with a TC). My typical "heavier" travel kit includes...
