Re: Anyone with D800 and old ais tele lenses ?

Does anyone here have a D800 and one of the following lens:
1. Nikon ais 500 f:4 p
2. Nikon ais 400 f:3.5

I have a 400 3.5 and a d800. The lens is "OK" cause I cant afford an AF-S version.

It has a bit of CA on the corners, and the I checked the focus against the 70-200 with the 1.7 teleconverter and the image is very similar. Using the TC301 does degrade the image a fair bit.

I havent used it much since I got my D800 so I can't go into more detail but may be able to put up some pics on the weekend.
