AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR

Sample Image 1

The 400 mm super-telephoto delivers great reach for distant subjects, which can be crucial when shooting elusive wildlife. Notice the sharp details on the lynx's face — all yours thanks to a new optical design and the extremely high-megapixel resolution of the D800.

Shutter speed
1/250 s
Aperture
f/7.1
Focal length
400 mm

Sample Image 2

Another example of the reach that a 400 mm focal length provides. This fleeting moment of notoriously elusive wild foxes is naturally reproduced at high resolution. The background bokeh further emphasizes the subjects.

Shutter speed
1/200 s
Aperture
f/6.3
Focal length
400 mm

Sample Image 3

Even in low-light scenes such as this, you can still capture high-resolution images that faithfully capture depth and detail. Notice the tediously reproduced moss textures on the tree in the foreground.

Shutter speed
1/10 s
Aperture
f/5.6
Focal length
135 mm

Sample Image 4

This train image packs extra drama thanks to the sun enlarged by the telephoto compression effect. Silhouetted subjects are rendered sharply, while Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces ghost and flare despite the sun's prominent place within the frame.

Shutter speed
1/4000 s
Aperture
f/9.5
Focal length
400 mm

Sample Image 5

Expect images with superb sharpness and high contrast, even when shot at the 400 mm telephoto end of the zoom. Taken with a Nikon DX-format camera, the angle of view in this image is equivalent to the focal length of 600 mm lens.

Shutter speed
1/1500 s
Aperture
f/9.5
Focal length
