Pros: Exceptional sharpness, lightweight, easy to handle.

Cons: Only the price

Opinion: After years of 300 mm f2.8 I came to this super telephoto, although before I owned the splendid AIS-P version with the CPU, and this choice, weighted long, several factors have intervened, such as the presence of an autofocus fast and accurate and the allocation of a second generation VR system, its lightness, the constructive lens strength which makes it able to withstand the conditions of use also gravose.rnIl 500 mm is the choice of many fotonaturalisti, also for the weight and not excessive overall dimensions, when compared to a 600 mm; its maneuverability freehand is another good card to giocare.rnrnNe I wrote a review here: rnrnhttp: //brunomora.blogspot.it/2013/07/af-s-nikkor-500-mm-f4g-ed- vr-n-appunti.html

Pros: This lens has so many that it is difficult to indicate one in particular, but coming from an old 600 mm (the first in the series AF-S), I would say the weight

Cons: No one apart from the price, but then it is normal for a "piece" of this caliber has its cost

Opinion: Objective purchased about six months ago and I must say it is really great for nature photography and sports in which the photographer can not get too close to the subject (I use it for the bike on the track) .rnE 'already razor-sharp wide open, condition in which gives the Bokeh really eccezionali.rnNonostante size is well balanced, but it must be used with a cavalletto.rnRegge excellently TC 1.4 and, although I do not like multipliers, from time to time, especially for the wildlife, I make some shots in this configurazione.rnChe add: I consider my point of arrival of the super tele and I think that will remain with me for a long time yet.

Pros: sharpness, weight content for the type of object, autofocus rapiido, quality generala also coupled with various duplicators.

Cons: nobody, one item price

Opinion: Hard to find fault in this wonderful lens, the prince of the photo hunt, handy enough to be used by hand, of course after a while 'must rest ... the lens as already mentioned goes well with various Tc. With Tc 14 becomes a fast 700mm F/5.6 impossible to discern a shot with and without duplicating the above. With the Tc 17 becomes a 850mm f/6.7 very sharp, even at RT, the loss in this case is in the speed of focus, but always reliable even in low light. the Tc 20 III transforms the lens in a 1000mm F / 8 .. but we lose the autofocus, the quality thanks to the excellent TC 2.0III remains satisfactory. coupled to a reflex in aps-C allows you to zoom in really small subjects. the Vr works fine, but requires that the subject stands still! Highly recommended allowing pockets, is the only alternative to the heavier 600mm VR. limitazioi compared to the older brother are very few, indeed .....
