Pros: Cost, especially since it is an original Nikon. Excellent stabilizer: you can shoot safely at 1/100 to 500mm by immobilizing the subject.

Cons: Blurry doesn't get to fixed levels, something brighter may be needed in the bush

Opinion: I'm upset about buying this goal. Bought new through parallel market, I took it home really for an excellent price: there are no other objectives of the parent company of equal quality that you can afford the same affordability of expenditure. Truly wide focal range from 200 to 500 allows you an infinite number of uses. Sometimes, you know zoom is never enough, I would have preferred to have a 300 - 600 in my hands, it would have been TOP. To date I have always mounted it on the D500 and in APSC format I do not consider it necessary to pair it with multipliers thus reaching an excellent yield attached to the machine as a solitary element. Used for some photo shots from sheds (bear, grunts, jay) I was surprised: the excellent stabilizer allows its use quietly even with bean-bag leaving the photographer more dynamism in the shots: if the subjects are immobile support the bag lens, if they begin to move use the machine directly by hand. Of course, it is unthinkable to use it for a long time freehand both for weight and for the long extension that comes to occupy on the 500 mm focal that makes everything really bulky and unseen. I also lament, like so many others, the much rotation that needs to be imprinted on the railing to move the focal point: sometimes I think it is more practical to push up and down the external lens transforming the lens as if it were a shotgun, the mechanism should not suffer. I hope. Enough brightness for outdoor shots, obviously with 5.6 in the woods it becomes a bit painful when you get to sunrise or sunset. I will end with the clarity that I think is excellent even at the utmost openness. If you want to start with photography from a shed for particularly shy subjects (wildlife) who will never get close to it again than so much I would say that it is the best to start this new adventure. I would leave alone the optics of "competing" houses that for a few € less expire a lot with quality. Then to improve the photo set there will always be time and move on to some serious fixed

Pros: Engraving, VR, fixed minimum iris, price

Cons: Lampshed, long zoom ring excursion

Opinion: I have been using it for some time, and I am fully satisfied with it. Very sharp and engraved, it has an excellent VR that allowed me to shoot freehand even in prohibitive conditions, but remember to always undock it *before* turning off the machine, otherwise to let it unlock sharp movements with the machine off could damage it. I also really appreciate the constant minimum diaphragm throughout the excursion. It's a little heavy, but from such a perspective you can't expect more, it can help a harness. The zoom lock on the minimum focal is also convenient. Efficient focus, the lampshon is quite a plasticone, but its work does. You have to take your hand with the long excursion of the zoom ring: you can not turn it all the way without taking your hand off; an alternative is to hold the bracket mounted, hold the lens from that and spin the ring with your fingertips. Overall, even in relation to equivalent optics, it has an excellent Q/P ratio.

Pros: Engraving, weight balance, price, constant opening, reasonable size

Cons: For the price range I would say nothing

Opinion: I have owned this lens for about a year and I can say that it is the easiest way to look at the "super canvas" photograph without spending a fortune and without struggling too much to carry it. The performance is really good, the lens is crisp and the stabilization (combined with the relatively low weight) exceptional allows you to shoot even freehand! With the D850, shooting in DX mode, you get to 800mm that are not really a few for a canvas with 5.6 aperture! Of course it's not tropicalized, it's made of plastic, it doesn't have nanocrystals, it's not a f4... blah blah blah. In my opinion it is best buy, and if you are not a professional who really needs superior quality and robustness, it has no equal in the market.

Pros: Accurate, vr stratospheric, well-balanced, optical performance

Cons: For the price range none. Maybe the lampshade.

Opinion: I've owned it for 3 years. Paired with D500 is a bomb. At 400mm and f5.6 is, af speed aside, at the same level as a fixed optics (and I say this from owner of 500 f4), to 500mm to have the top goes diaphragated to f8. Af very precise but a little slow. For the rest it is a very recommended lens, especially for safaris and itinerant shots. I took him to South Africa, with the D500 he didn't miss one and I say one photo. If it had a faster af it would cost at least twice as much.

Pros: Value for money, weight compared to other supertles, excellent stabilizer

Cons: A couple of times he went into the af freeze, sometimes I seem to suffer too much heat haze (hot air masses over long distances)

Opinion: I have been using it for 3 years and I have to say that it is almost perpetually mounted on the reflex (a D610 that does not shine for af but the pairing has taken away from me anyway great satisfactions in naturalistic ... not being able to invest large budgets, however, I am more than satisfied). Chosen for the lower weight than the Sigma 150 600 S because I walk a lot, but if one moves little I recommend the latter for the 100mm more (in Italy you are always short with supertele). Made great but I have to complain photos kneaded over long distances at certain times, I think it is common to all canvases but it gives me the impression that the cheap ones suffer more. A couple of times he even blocked the af and I had to turn off and turn on the reflex to make it work. I have never been able to try more performing equipment but I still feel very good and highly recommend it. The lampshade does not seem to me to be a problem at all, it fits perfectly and the bag to me does not serve by placing the equipment in an ICU inside the backpack.
