  1. Hi. Does this version feature an exposed steel collar located at the base of the carbon hood? I've just bought the new 400 2.8 FL and worried about the risk of the paintwork of the lens becoming heavily scratched around the rim where the steel collar of the lens hood is coming into direct contact with the lens.

  2. Really, not even one sample photo?  I hate reviews that show you all the obvious buttons on the side and turn the rings and comment on how easy or hard the rings are to turn.  Ugg.  Worthless.  How about some sample photos showing sharpness, CA, etc.

  3. That has to be the clearest and most concise explanation of the lens controls I've seen yet. Why on earth does it have a two-piece hood though? What are the benefits over a single piece? I'm sure there's some marketing speak from Nikon that will state it's beneficial from a light gathering variance point of view but in reality….?

  4. Minimum focus distance is never measured from the front of the lens. Focus is achieved by calaulating the distance between the subject and the focal plane. The focal plane inside the camera is shown on the camera as a circle with a line through it. On the D700 this is located on the top of the body, right hand side on the rear corner behind the strap eyelet near the top screen.
