Nikon 80-400 VR Review

“Miracle of modern technology”

nikon nikkor 80-400

I have this lens for half-a-year now. Pricy, of course, but it is worth it. It allowed me to take some pretty interesting pictures which would not be taken any other way. Most of the time it is necessary when you `shoot’ animals, e.g. birds, or butterflies, who would not allow you to get close. Another example is to shoot an alligator, where he probably would not mind, but I do. Then, some architectural shots from a big distance also become possible. The VR (vibration reduction) is totally amazing. The thing, however, eats batteries for lunch, so I’ve started to carry a second battery. The lens comes in a nice cylindrically shaped bag, and because it is pretty big and heavy, I carry it in it’s original bag, instead of trying to stick it into the same bag with camera, so the load is spread. Of course, you really need to love this type of shooting to carry it around. Overall, the lens is a miracle of the modern technology, and the quality is exceptional. This is a great fun, and if money allow – I highly recommend.
