Haroy jamigel “Just received today and gave it a quick test of a few hundred images using a D600. I can’t find any faults. Based on my sample I’m very happy with this lens which has several features and capabilities I wanted. It is a great balance in size and cost for its tele range and performance. After hauling around and shooting larger F2.8 pro tele lenses in this range, this smaller size will be a lot more practical. I’m much more likely to have this lens with me when I need it.”
Dean lastrei “As a professional photographer for 40+ years just retired, and an avid sports fan, this is a fabulous lens.
I was a racing photographer before I opened two studios. I have assortment of telephotos but none this large. I shoot with a D7100 for action. I also love nature and tested this lens at Bolsa Chica wetlands. VERY impressive.Quality excellent. Both of lens and results. Hand held amazing.”
Lop tionamity “I bought this 200-500mm lens to replace my Nikon 80-400mm (old model). Compared to the 80-400, the glass is noticeably sharper and the VR works much better. In reality, the lens sharpness has far surpassed what I expected to get. This lens makes justification for mega expensive ultra-tele primes difficult. Comparatively, for $8,000 Nikon’s f/4 500mm prime only gives you 1 more stop. Theoretically along with that you should also get better bokeh and resolution. However, the resolution of this lens exceeds all of my other Nikon zooms, and begins to match the resolution of Nikon prime lenses. Bokeh also rivals what I’d expect out of a prime. The 200-500mm’s aperture is fixed at f/5.6, not variable, which is better than the “off” brand ultra zooms. In overcast light, the VR is effective enough to get consistent sharp images hand-held at low ISO’s. I’ve even gotten sharp images in shade at 1/60th hand held. Compared to other ultra zooms, this lens is a BEAST and gets fatiguing after a morning of birding, but still much easier that a 500mm prime. The free B+W filter (at the time of writing) made this the deal of the century.“
