High-speed telephoto lenses like these two are designed to offer the very highest image quality but they’re somewhat pricey and restricted to specialist use. Where once the 300mm was the most popular, the 400mm is, arguably the most flexible in the range (especially when used with tele-converters with the aim of maintaining autofocus) and therefore the most sort after today. Both models share a number of similar features including three ED glass elements, Nano Crystal Coat and an ultrasonic type AF motor. Both models also feature the latest 4-stop VR II spec image stabilization and have prices to match.

To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
As mentioned earlier take a chill pill. And take more photos and read less reviews. You have pro-level cameras (when compared to what was available just 5 years ago). If you like the images that you are producing then there is nothing to worry about. If you don't, first check to make sure your technique is up to snuff, and if it is go buy something else you really think is better (and of course tested, you wouldn't want to have any further doubts).
I love reading these tests and they can help guide me to 'value' lenses. I waited for months to see the D600 lens reviews and the results were no surprise. You can see it in the images if you have been shooting for a few years and still have your older lenses and camera bodies for comparison.

I hope you are not right, but that's why we need to see the test results. It is possible that for some reason DXoMark avoids posting the results. They choose to post lenses that cost $10,000 for Nikon, but not posting results for majority users for months. DXoMark is just asking to start questioning their integrity.
We are late. We try to assess the new cameras as first priority. And then we perform measurement on other high priority cameras. As we already performed 2 Full Frame Nikon cameras, the APS-C Nikon camera is in our list but not at the top for now. Other brand needs their first lens recommendation (we did not perfom the Olympus OM EM5 nor the Panasonic GH3) The next lens recommendation will be: - Olympus OMD EM5 and Panasonic GH3 very soon - Pentax K50 - Olympus PEN EP5 - Nikon APS-C cameras - Nikon D800E
Some other new cameras could be included in this list when they will be announced and so add some delay for the publication of the older.
Well, I do not think it very reassuring your answer for nikon aps users. The only data on perceptual mpx sensors mounted on new 24 megapixel nikon, fall short of the cameras eight years ago, with 6 or 8 sensors mpx ... What makes me question until your point is valid ranking of sensors in which the color depth, dynamic range and noise, seem the only items to keep in mind while solving capacity or mentioned: I do know that it depends largely to the lens, but clearly it should also be considered.
Emilie, lets get real before you get to the Nikon D800e lens tests, there is going to be announcement for the new Nikon fx body. And, how much different the tests would be from D800, by half a point? By now, everybody in photography knows your web page, so instead of getting the web page on the wagon and provide the links to Adorama, Amazon, or have your own shop and get founds from it, so you can keep up with being pro-active with the lens and camera testing in timely manner keeping everybody happy you choose to sell software. As long as you keep your test results with integrity, it would make no difference to you what equipment sells. It's win-win situation-readers are happy and your are happy. If you keep up your work the way you do, you are always going to be behind no matter what you do. You step ahead or another web page will step forward with something you started first. From what you just said, we might be waiting for the Nikon D7100 lens tests for months again. Anyway, maybe I just expect too much from this web page. Thanks for the info about your future tests.
Sorry guys, but it is really silly to find another review for that covers just a few people in photography. People wait for months to see some lens tests for majority users! I am waiting as probably thousands of others for results of lens testings for the Nikon D7100 which is probably the best DX camera, but you choose for months to do everything but not it. What is wrong with that? It's ridiculous!
