Pros: sharpness, VR, AF-speed in most situations fast enough, WEIGHT!!

Cons: AF somtimes hunts in nervous backgrounds

Opinion: for me, this lens is a dream. After times with heavy 600/4 or bulky 560/5,6 this is the lens I can take with me wherever I want - long hikes, into the mountains, or...just out of the car window. You save many seconds just taking the camera plus 500/5,6PF, instead of lifting a heavy lens out of the window while "driving by". For hide-fotography or when a TC is an option, a 500/4 or 600/4 would be the better option - af is a little faster and the heavy lenses are more "think about what you shoot" and "concentrate on the target". While the 500/5,6 is a "run around and search and have fun" lens :-) Difficult to explain, but with the 500/4 fotography feels a little bit more serious ;-)

Pros: Lightweight, handling, sharpness, AF speed

Cons: a notch below the sacred monsters F4

Opinion: I've had a lot of Nikon F lenses now almost all sold, I've left the 500PF and the 300 F/2.8 vrII until now, I got the Z PF series and I hope that the 600PF will be as good as the old 500. The 500 PF coupled with the D5, the D850 and the 500 gave me great satisfaction if I used it well little, compared to the 400 f/4.5 z for me the 500 comes out as the winner

Pros: Lightness and compactness, image quality, impeccable construction, tropicalized. End of back pain.

Cons: Nothing important.

Opinion: I took it as a replacement for the Nikkor 200-500, mainly because of the lower weight and bulk. For the type of use (itinerant photographic hunting) it is definitely more suitable, also because I used the zoom almost always at 500mm, often also with the TC1.4III. This lens is giving me better results in all conditions. Only handicap, with the TC in low light conditions the AF becomes slow and imprecise, but this depends on the camera body (I have D850 and D810), and with the 200-550 it was worse. I do not find relevant, in my experience, the criticism of the tripod mount and the hood. The original Cordura case is unsuitable for transport. For cases where I transport it separately from the rest, I purchased a properly protective cylindrical case.

Pros: Footprint, weight, excellent optical quality

Cons: Price, hood, tripod mount

Opinion: Great optics, and said by one who for decades has cordially hated Fresnel lenses is all to say! Incredible portability, excellent optical performance in an absolute sense. Maybe mine will be a lucky specimen but in terms of sharpness it has very little to envy to the 500 FL, against which it loses more than anything else in bokeh. We are therefore talking about a very different championship than the one played by 200-500 or 80-400, and for this reason the price is justified even if high. Wielding it is still a pleasure, VR works wonders and you can shoot quietly freehand. The TC 14 is its natural companion, it loses a trifle to TA but already closing a stop turns out to be transparent. The AF is loose but maybe it's better that way, Nikon's AF engines are either slow or die early. I would not dwell on the hood, that it sucks is established, everyone wrote it. What really me off is instead the attack foot to the tripod: archaic, anachronistic and moreover poorly balanced, to be replaced immediately with an ark swiss foot. The successful upgrade consists in equipping our 500 with a nice lenscoat (the original US one, not the Easy Chinese covers ...). I don't know what else to say, I love this lens (with my little brother 300 PF is among my untouchables), I use it on a beautiful carbon gimbal with the D6 of which it is a natural complement, and every time it gives me a great lust ... Highly recommended, grade 10 laude!

Pros: Weight, blurry, af, sharpness.

Cons: Nothing

Opinion: Purchased for use with the d500 and to replace the sigma 150 600 contemporary. The differences are abysmal! I use it both from the car with bean bag and freehand for stray hunting. Responsive and very effective AF even on subjects in flight and in rapid movement, beautiful blurred, sharpness at the top and here you can see the difference from the most commercial zooms. Very satisfied! It's worth all the money it costs. Rating:10.
