Sony SAL500F40G

 

Excellent image quality - does exactly what I wanted. Coupled with the Sony 1.4 converter, image quality is still amazing. Handles well and the tripod collar/handle feels comfortable. Construction feels very robust. Same button layout as the Sony 300mm.

Bulk - but it is a 500mm lens, so no surprise! Cost.
