Who It’s For:
This lens is Nikon’s top of the line professional super telephoto lens for sports and nature photographers. Pair it with the Nikon D4 and you’ve got yourself a mean combo.
What We Like:
Build Quality: This lens is very well made and is intended for professionals so no complaints here.
Sharp: Nikon always puts the most work into it’s big telephotos so optically, this is going to be one of the best that Nikon makes.
VR: Nikon claims 3 stops of improvement.
ED Glass: Nikon’s extra low dispersion glass is brilliant at getting rid of color fringing.
Autofocus: The autofocus on this lens is very fast and very quiet.
Price: This is a very special purpose lens and definitely not for everyone, and it’s price reflects it.
What We Don’t:
Lack of Filters: The front element is massive so no filters, only Nikon’s drop in filters.
