What is the best lens for wildlife photography? That is a question I get asked a lot but a question that is very hard if not impossible to answer.

To see more of my photos and to read my behind the scenes stories.
In this episode of Photographer’s Friday I am sharing my thoughts about which lenses I use for wildlife photography and why.
I have just got the new Nikon 180-400mm f/4 1,4 TC to play with for a couple of weeks and that might be the best lens for me – only time can tell.
Because we all have different needs and different preferences it will be hard to find a lens that is best for everyone – also because we can not get everything in just one lens without sacrificing either sharpness and speed or flexibility and lightweight.
In this video I am telling about my Nikon 600mm f/4 VR super telephoto lens, the Tamron 150-600mm g2 telephoto zoom and then finally the new Nikon 180-400mm f/4 1,4 TC.
AND sorry for talking so much – it is just such a hard topic and I am trying my best to get around the things I feel matter when it comes to choosing lenses for wildlife photography.
