I would buy this product again and again


This lens is by far a must have for the photographer who wants to get UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL. Not only get close, but to add extreme depth of field effects to you photographs.

Great wildlife lens


I have been using an 80-400VR and wanted a bit more reach and more sharpness.

Needs skill to use. I'm doing better than I thought without VR

The 500mm F4 P lens is a great way to get the advantages of a long lens without excessive cost or weight. The manual focus version is relatively light and quite sharp. Since the lens has a matrix chip, all metering modes are usable. The only thing you...

Very sharp * Relatively light for hikers * Great price/performance ratio

Focus ring at far end of lens barrel * Wimpy tripod mounting foot
