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...

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.

Very fast. Extremely sharp. Great contrast. CA is very low

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