Nikkor 400mm 3.5 MF, worth it?

Published November 23rd, 2011

I am not the best in manual focusing and the little dot has fooled me more than once :) sooooooo, I guess I know the answer, get a AF but darn it they cost more than my car!!!!

Anybody out there have used the 400mm 3.5? I can get a nice clean one for less than 1000 dollars as for the 2.8 it can cost almost 2 grand or more!

Any photos to share? How's the sharpness and bokeh? is it crazy to use it handheld? I have a 300mm 2.8 MF that weighs a ton!!

Thank you guys and gals for any comments and photos to help on this matter.
