Nikon AF-S Nikkor 500mm f/4D IF-ED II

 

This lens is well into the serious amateur/professional category, if only by price. For many it would be a dream purchase but it has some features that make it an essential tool for a specialised job. We take a look here at the features that put it in...

REVIEW: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 500mm f/4D IF-ED

Focus speed (with appropriate body); Optical quality

Weight (especially with case); Price; Closest focus over 4 ½ metres

If you have a good reason for justifying the price of this lens, you will not be disappointed with the results. You will need to mount it on a pro-spec body to extract the best from it, because the autofocus is extremely quick and needs the faster...

Outstanding

 

An Outstanding lens. Cant get over how fast it focuses. Images pin sharp. VR tripod setting a great advantage. Lens is heavy but you would expect this with a 500mm lens. Would have preferred a lens case rather than the aluminium carrying case that it...

Incredibly sharp and bright

 

Fantastic lens for wildlife, both on a bean bag in a car\/ hide and on a sturdy monopod. The one I used was pin sharp but, surprisingly, not so when I attached the Nikon TC-14EII teleconverter. I say "surprisingly" because on my Nikon 300\/f4 I cannot...

Gentlemen, start your engines.

 

OK. So if you\'re thinking of getting one, like me you\'ll probably be looking for all the cons you can to justify not having to splash the cash. Sorry to have to disappoint you but this lens rocks. You kind of feel this lens was designed to be used...

Best combo reach\/weight

 

Before I ordered this on the 6 of januari I considered the 400\/2.8 and 600\/4. However they are much bigger and heavy so this was the best combo for me. The lens works great with TC-14EII and TC-17EII, loosing almost no sharpness. I used to own a AF-S...
