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

Focus speed (with appropriate body); Optical quality

Closest focus over 4 ½ metres

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...

My dream lens

 

This is the lens I never thought I would ever own. The key for me was my 300mm f/2.8 VRII that I owned for a year which I was able to trade for this, without losing a penny on the original purchase. I find the 500mm f/4 to be a real beast, and a head...

500mm Nikkor lens

 

This is a stunning lens and used in the right circumstances is capable of amazing results. Whilst it can be hand held, with VR switched on I would suggest using a top quality tripod and head or better still a gimbal head. If you have a need for a lens...
