Lens Review
Introduction | Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-400mm f/4G ED VR II lens performance | Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM vs Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-400mm f/4G ED VR II | Conclusion

While Nikon users maybe slightly put out by the stellar image quality of the Canon model, the Nikkor lens is certainly no slouch. Given the latest iteration didn’t have any change to the optical cell (other than the Nano Coat) over the 2005 version, it’s a still a convincing performance eight years on. It’s also relatively more affordable. While not cheap exactly, the Canon model is an eye-watering $11,799.
