I have just bought a Nikon AF-S 80-400 f4.5-5.6. I had read several good reviews of the lens and with ISO capabilities of the D800E more than making up for the 5.6 aperture I thought it could be a handy lens to have. My initial view is that the lens does live up to the reviews.

All comments welcome, thanks.

Awesome John. I haven't seen a shot that I haven't liked with this lens. My copy is NIB (as opposed to LNIB) because I haven't had a chance to even unbox it yet. Unboxing video anyone :biggrin:. Again, beautiful images.

Looks like the new lens is working for you John, but have to say Rocky is looking great...
Love the second shot, and the 2 last shots show a lot of his character... Plus Rocky's not old, just heading into his prime..!!!. :smile:...

Nice shots. Lens is very tempting.

Here we go again. You guys are killing me with the 80-400 posts :frown:

The first shot is awesome. The B/W works for that one.
I prefer the B&W in the first! Its dramatic and dreamy. Nice eye

Go on! You know you want one :wink:. Thanks for the comments especially about the BW shot.

Good looking pup and nice shots...! :smile:

I'd change the title to "New lens, awesome dog" :smile: Great images with some nice bg's.
I love the expression in #2! Maybe an old dog, but he's still got some rascal in him! #1 is very handsome.
Great shots.
Hard not to get a good shot with a subject like that though. :smile:
Love the B&W.
He is a good looking dog and he certainly does have a bit of mischief in him, but basically he just loves people paying attention. Thanks again for all the nice comments.
