Pros: sharpness, versatility, VR

Cons: bracket, hood

Opinion: I bought it from the store attracted by the competitive price also for the second-hand market but already having the excellent 80-400 of the G series I thought I would resell it immediately after trying it a little but until I sold the 80-400 and I still do not feel the lack. I was favorably amazed at the efficiency of the stabilizer and the sharpness of the lens at maximum aperture. The only sore points but that justify the price so low for a lens of this level: lack of tropicalization, hood and bracket unproposable.

Pros: Price, sharp, robust, anti-atomic stabilizer.

Cons: Zoom ring excursion, AF.

Opinion: Being my first and only supertele I can not pronounce on comparisons with others. But I appreciate this as sharpness, silence and robustness. The AF does its dirty work but sometimes it gets lost not finding the right way. The excursion of the zoom ring requires more "turns" to go from 200 to 500 and vice versa and, in case of photographic hunting, you have to settle for the times that the action requires. The stabilizer is scary, almost like that of the TAMRON SP 70-300 but much quieter. For the price of the new, the image quality is unparalleled. I used it for the first time in the swamp cabin, diaphragm between 7 and 9 and I must say that the images came wonderfully sharp. I'm an amateur and that's fine with me.

Pros: Sharpness, overall quality

Cons: Af a bit slow on some camera bodies

Opinion: I have now owned it for a year, I consider it really valid especially for goat fauna and sports. The stabilization is very good, despite the weight you can also shoot freehand. Very good sharpness then mounted on a machine like the D500 becomes a bomb capable of giving incredible shots but above all it goes very well with the needs that the D500 possesses. Using this lens on some machines L'af becomes slower such as on D800 or D810. I don't always use multipliers because I've noticed that it loses quality. The price may seem high but to be a 200-500mm also costs relatively little. The weight is there but it is normal. Sharp already at full aperture, during zoom, it does not lose sharpness, at 500mm you work better by closing at f6.3. Obviously using it at F8 you get the best depth of field for this kind of zoom. I recommend it to both a pro and an amateur, I think this is a perspective that could also be used in professional sports and non-sports fields.

Pros: sharpness

Cons: nobody

Opinion: I tried a Sigma 150-600 many times that gave me a friend on loan. Unsatisfactory as sharpness. Found this used optics (used very little equal to the new one) and more than ever I did not evaluate the purchase before. They're going to get heavy, but it's going to be there. Excellent sharpness, even in crop difficult to lose it. F 5.6 real, you take advantage of all the firepower even at 500. When accompanied by a good sensor that bears the increase in iso well I do not feel great difficulties in very good VR shaded areas that saves life in difficult conditions. Quick autofocus (comparison to the optics used by me so far I can only be satisfied) Great rotation for switching from 200 to 500 but I don't think it's a big deal. The perfect ring/bracket to be used as a handle. The lampshed, many people consider it poor, does not, in my opinion, affect the overall judgment of this lens, which I think is more than positive.

Pros: Optical quality slightly superior to the competition. Autofocus very good but not perfect on ML, with Z6II sometimes loses the subject but I think it's because of the FTZ adapter. Color rendering and very good definition in proportion to the cost.

Cons: NITAL ASSISTANCE took about 2 years to fix a problem, if that's the best guarantee to let it go, a shame.

Opinion: After buying it used I took the first shots, unpresentable photos with split images so I took it to assistance since luckily (????) was still under warranty Nital, after various adventures and a couple of years of unused was sent to Germany to Nikon Europe where they finally fixed it (at least at the moment it works well). Having said that I would add that I have done comparative tests with two other competition optics. Sammy too heavy and unbalanced but still performing, Tammy light but AF slow and construction that looks like a toy so in the end I prefer the 100mm less but a fixed diaphragm at 5.6 and a VR that I find very good. It is not the lens to take for a walk if you are not physically gifted and my back does not allow me so for birdlife I mount it on Gimbal and I feel satisfied. I just add that it always takes a good light for these canvases otherwise there is no point complaining. In conclusion, I vote 9.5 to the target, for Nital I do not speak to avoid a complaint .....
