Nikon 80-400 Dust Problems? Was Never an Issue For Me
I’m a Belgian photographer and I bought the nikon 80-400, based on the interesting review you wrote.
Nonetheless, I must confess I’m not very sure of the dust sealing of this lense.
Did you experiment dust problems during your trip in South Africa ? The pump action mecanism make me think dust could get into the lense, just beneath the front element.
May I ask you wich method did you use to avoid dust during game drives ?
No I have never had an issue with the new 80-400mm having dust problems. I do use Outdoor Research dry bags to place my cameras and large lenses into when in the field if the dust conditions are severe. These work great for riding in open vehicles etc. Hope this helps. It’s never ben an issue for me.
