Introduction | Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f2.8G ED VR II lens performance | Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f2.8G ED VR lens performance | Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f2.8G ED VR II Versus Competition | Nikon AF-S Nikkor 400mm F2.8G ED VR Versus Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM | Conclusion

With a DxOMark Lens Score of 35, the latest Nikon 400mm f2.8 model is another excellent performer. The 25P-Mpix score is one of the highest in its class, and suggests that this lens might be able to achieve an even higher Sharpness score when analyzed with a camera such the D800E.
