Pros: Sharpness, build quality, easy handling, hood

Cons: Tripod holder

Opinion: Happy owner also of the f / 2.8 I can say that in the comparison does not disfigure, especially at short distances and taking into account the difference in price. It is handy, sturdy, with minimum focusing distance for me sufficient. I use it for the stray with D500 and sometimes with 1.4 or 1.7, but I don't like multipliers. In the shed only for very short distances with D850 (excellent results) as less intrusive than 2.8. The hood is very comfortable and sufficient. I consider it almost unbeatable in the quality / price ratio on today's used. Of course it doesn't have VR, the project is dated... but I don't care. As for the support, I replaced it with kirk at the time.

Pros: Sharpness even at full aperture, low weight, dimensions and consequently maneuverability and transport

Cons: The only flaw is the lack of stabilizer

Opinion: I have been using it for several years now and it always gives me positive experiences in any area I put it to the test (from portraiture to nature photography passing through sporting events and agility dog) what to say .. still highly recommended today for SLRs (keep in mind that on the z system unfortunately the autofocus is lost so it is not suitable). Last thing I find the retractable hood very comfortable

Pros: It is a fantastic lens that can be seen from the sharpness and definition and easy to handle with the right proportions.

Cons: Perhaps the only flaw is that the stabilizer is missing but it can be remedied.

Opinion: A lens that I have been using for several years and that has never disappointed me as I use it for different purposes from nature photography and among these macro photography and natural landscape or with architectural elements, or for birdlife. I have been using it for some time in combination with the Nikon D810 every now and then I add the focal multiplier tce 1.7 with which it slows down a bit but not so much ii I must say that I almost always carry the desired shot. Now that it has gone out of production I advise you to buy it because in the second-hand market you can find it between 600 and 700 euros and it is affordable. I personally will keep it anchored for a long time if not when I wish to replace it with a more professional one. The only thing I can say is that it is worth all the money spent and if it had had tropicalization it is a more open aperture I would consider it the perfect lens. The vote I give is 9.7

Pros: Everything, really everything

Cons: Nothing, nisba, the cosmic void

Opinion: Exceptional lens. Purchased new on the nikon store (last example, at least in Italy), never more apt purchase. Incredible sharpness, microcontrasto from fear to full aperture. It completely solves the sensor of the z7ii and it is not enough! He would like more. Natural colors, made unique. Af very fast on z7ii via ftz (in short, this ftz is not so bad: made comparison on d500 and same speed). In short, very happy, I would never sell it again.

Pros: Sharpness, quite light, all metal construction, excellent workmanship.

Cons: at the moment nobody

Opinion: The lens in question, although it has no stabilization, can be used quietly freehand, even if it is not a feather. The yield is also excellent at TA free of chromatic aberrations. By mounting its dedicated CT (TC14EII, TC17EII) the sharpness does not degrade and the overall contrast remains equal to the smooth. To combine it with the TC17EII you have to have a machine body able to manage the AF at least up to f/8, it becomes a 510mm f/6.7. On the other hand, these information are also given in its attached manual. It should not be used with other TC !!! This is absolutely to be considered, except you can combine it with the Kenko 300Pro 1.4 DGX, where the results are very similar (almost equal) to the TC14EII. Its RR is 0.27x not as incorrectly mentioned in the card with 0.25x. Multiplying it with the TC17EII the RR becomes o.46x, which allows you to make really pushed close-ups (we could also call them macro) and of extreme image quality.
