Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED Review
« on: March 22, 2018, 06:10:52 AM »
ePhotozine has reviewed the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED. Although they give it a rave review for IQ, it is obvious that there is a dramatic drop in MTF on going from 300-400mm

and the resolution on an 850 is poorer at 400mm than is that of the Tamron 100-400mm in the centre on a 5DSR.

No doubt it has advantages of f-stop and AF, but not the IQ you would expect from such a pricey beast.
