Have you recently won the lottery? Do you like to shoot sports? Nikon's latest flagship 400mm f/2.8 may be for you then. The price of over £10,000 means only lottery winners and large news agencies may be able to justify the cost.

This new Nikon 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR is giant leap in 400mm telephoto lens world !I already own the fantastic AF-I 400mm f/2.8 so why buy that new $12.000 400mm f2.8 ?Well, first (and most important) is the weight, that lens weight only half of my AF-I 400mm f/2.8 !
