The AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR is an advanced lens for advanced D-SLRs. Autofocus is powered by Nikon's exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which uses ultrasonic vibrations—instead of a gear system—for ultra-fast, ultra-quiet, ultra-precise focusing.
I have been wanting to upgrade my old AF-s 500 for some time. It was a tossup between the 600 and 800. Most of what I read and what I saw on uTube didn't really answer the question. But the one thing that stuck in my mind was the raves about the sharpness of the 800mm.
After 35 years in the photo world in one capacity or another I have worked with some really sharp glass in all formats this lens is in the top five. Working now as a photo guide I stay on top of new products after renting this for a rainy weekend it blew me away.
Pros: you can share photos of places you've never been. Once I was in Miami, FL, and was able to take perfect photos of Los Angeles. Eveybody on Instagram believed I was in Los Angeles. This lens also took great photos of NYC & DC, all from my Holyday Inn window in Miami.
I have used Nikon cameras and lenses for 30+ years. It's difficult to compare this lens to any other that I have used, including the 600mm f/4 VRII. Paired with the Nikon D4s (with or without its dedicated 1.25E TC), it's a dream lens for the wildlife/bird photographer.
Razor sharp and quick focus, excellent balance, great VR
The price, but I suppose that you get what you pay for.
It's not as heavy as it looks, the AF is super fast, the bouquet is fantastic and the sharpness/clarity is mind-blowing!Yes - it is very expensive but when you make your living with photography it's probably worth it. I love it!
Great lens -as every reviewer, only positives. I had it for only a couple of weeks and have been practicing with it. So far I have used it with both, D4s (for birds) and D800E (for moon and stationary items), for birding moon pictures, and some pictures of very distant items. Awesome pics.
very great lens for instagram or facebook photo shooting.
Beyond Expectations Razor Sharp!!! Fast and Quiet Focusing Not as big and bulky as I had expected. IF, you own a 400mm 2.8 you will find this handles very similar
I had high expectations for this lens and I have not been disappointed. Optically, it is mostly perfect, and the detail in the images show extreme resolution. This lens is so sharp it can resolve the wrinkles in a birds skin near their eyes from a distance of fifty feet or more.
It's a fun activity to do with friends.
