Pros: Sharpness, flexibility, autofocus speed, construction.

Cons: Nothing. For sure the 3.200 kg. Weight are felt, but on optics of this level and openness is to be expected.

Opinion: Exceptional lens. With the D500 becomes a 300-600 very pleasant to use. Given the weight, it needs a solid tripod or at least a sturdy monopod to pull out the maximum. Loss of focus speed and definition with the TC 14eii virtually irrelevant. Superb contrast, splendid rendition at all openings, and there is virtually no degradation of image quality as the focal length grows.

Pros: Sharpness, definition, MAF speed, flexibility

Cons: Weight

Opinion: An excellent lens of great quality whose price of the used allows the purchase without completely fauning. The main quality lies in the brightness combined with being a zoom, and therefore great flexibility. The quality seems to me better to the court and medium distances compared to the subjects close to infinity or in any case over fifty meters. Stable at various focal lengths. Excellent the MAF and good tightness to duplicators, often indispensable for birdlife. It is possible to use it freehand, but of course for a short time and in proportion to its own "musculature"; In this case zoom is not entirely immediate. Of course, the weight is the main limit. A personal opinion, not everyone shared (see discussion on the forum), is that the differences from the 200 500 of the same house are significant and, of course, except the weight, all in favor of this lens, not by chance much more expensive. Recommended.

Pros: Sharpness, versatility, autofocus, construction.

Cons: Weight, weight........

Opinion: Bought used by 5 months, fantastic lens sharp already at F4 does not lose almost anything multiplied with TCII 1.4 x both in sharpness and speed AF, perfect for photographic hunting thanks to the versatility of the zoom. Built like a tank but the weight is felt. Not I have monthly the VR because I disable it always because I use it exclusively with the tripod. Unfortunately for back problems I have to sell it, I ordered the Nikon 500 mm PF I hope the quality is equal to any of the 200-400.

Pros: Construction, AF, optical yield, Well balanced.

Cons: Size, VR dated

Opinion: taken to replace the 300 f2.8 VR to have more versatilità.rnPaga a little in terms of sharpness compared to 300mm but not much, if used smooth is outstanding, excellent focus and color stupendi.rnL'af is fast and accurate, the VR does its job but it is not comparable to the Nikon recenti.rnNonostante accomplishments is longer and heavier than 300mm, I find it easier to use hand-free thanks to the excellent bilanciamento.rnCon the TC14 III performs very well, the only ' af slows in critical light conditions.

Pros: Zoom range, sharpness, lightning-fast autofocus with multipliers, build quality.

Cons: The stabilization, which I think is totally useless on any goal. It disables the always even freehand.

Opinion: Excellent lens, crystal clear even with 1.4x with whom you do not lose either speed autofocus, nor sharpness. With 1.7x always very fast even for fast-moving subjects. In this case it can sometimes become softer over long distances. The autofocus is quiet. Smaller burden. Despite being a zoom, you never entered a speck of dust inside. Unfortunately I have to sell it because I want to do, often not enough focal length.
