Thread: Nikon 80-400

    Question Nikon 80-400

    Anyone reckon if there will ever be an AF-S version of this lens?I've read a lot about the current version being a bit slow to autofocus in most situations.
    The 100-400 seems quite popular with Canon users - i'd like a similar piece of glass to attach to my D90!

    Here's hoping.......

    Hi Wayne. I have a D300 and use a Sigma 120-400mm for all my sport and wildlife shots. I can't fault this lens which I bought new 2 years ago, and the results are very impressive. The APSC sensor in my camera means the focal length of all lenses is multiplied by 1.5, so this lens equates to a 180-600mm. So if you want a damn good lens with some grab I would recommend this Sigma for your D90. All the best, Mike.

    Hi Mike,
    I have thought about a Sigma alternative - just wondered if there was any likelihood of a 'new' 80-400 from Nikon.
    Another option i considered was busting my budget for a new 70-200 plus a tele converter - persuading the missus is tricky though
