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 .....

Pros: Compact, 500mm f5.6 real and very exploitable, AF fast but improves with a more modern module, effective VR, you shoot under safety time. Honest price

Cons: Plastic and ecomomic keys such as the lampshed, modified with inner black velvet. Comfortable zoom ring but with very "long" stroke and alas the optics are also stretched.

Opinion: Bought a few years ago in the UK... €1300 warranty has expired, but has not shown any problems. Taken to replace the Tamrex first series, which I have no regrets about but for those 100mm... but it had other kidneys, during the warranty period ultrasonic engine failure, contact and a lot of dust inside. QUindi in the gearbox I preferred to choose a fixed diaphragm losing 100mm but acquiring an "original" and decidedly more balanced optics than the Tamrex during brandishing and use, of course, with camera+BG+additional battery we are at 3.5kg, not a few. This Nikon, on the other hand, is now almost 5 years old and is like the first day, often used as the only optics for photo hunting, always satisfying shots, certainly at TA it is indicated for short-distance shots, for animals over 20meters you have to close, vr is super effective, you shoot safely under safety times. Sure... when the light goes down and you're on edge with the times, the photos knead... but I think it's physiological, even for an ine expert and amateur user like I am. For protection I use it with quality 95mm filter and camouflage tutina, the lampshade I coated it internally with black velvet to avoid reverberations, it is light and the hook is not the most solid, definitely economical. As the first "cheap" step is perfect, recommended, the next could be an old 300mm f2.8 with multipliers or the more modern 500 f5.6 fixed compact, but let's talk about quite other digits.

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.
