Nikon 600mm f/4 vs Nikon 400mm f/2.8

I have been a photographer for awhile, It has been a long wonderful road to where I am today in respects to my equipment and ability. DSLRs and modern manufacturing capabilities have put in our hands some of the most advanced cameras today, notwithstanding the super spectacular lens designs coming from makers such as Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Tamron just to name a few.   With so many choices out there it is no wonder we sometimes get wrapped around the axle trying to decide what lens to purchase.

Nikkor 14-24mm 2.8 Lens Review

This is one of my sharpest lens I own, It is amazing as compared to any other lens available on the market. If you can forget about the size, weight and money you spent on it – it can offer your great photos. This lens uses two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements and PGM aspherical lenses control chromatic aberrations while enhancing sharpness and contrast. Boy is it sharp!
