About this deal

Over the last year it has been the first lens I will put in my backpack; I know I will use it at some point during the day. No image stabilization: Although lighter, you will get significantly fewer sharp shots due to the lack of image stabilization, especially at slower shutter speeds. The prime is a bit of a one trick pony, a very sharp, very fast one trick pony producing great images, but still a one trick pony.

Whether you use a tripod or employ good hand-holding techniques can make a difference in your photographs, sometimes more so than the lens itself. Despite its mostly plastic barrel construction (the tip of the zoom ring where the focal lengths are engraved, along with the tripod foot and the mount are made out of metal), one could tell that there are plenty of metal components inside the lens, since it is a pretty hefty lens. Having tested a number of 150-600mm lenses, I was also a bit worried about quality assurance and reliability issues, thinking that Nikon would be better in that department overall.

New is a SPORT VR mode, which claims to allow VR to work well while photographing things that move unpredictably.It offers a large zoom range, making it ideal for capturing everything from small birds to large mammals. In this section, I will share my insights on how best to use the Nikon 200-500 for wildlife photography.

lb), the 70-300 is the lightest lens on this list, making it a practical alternative if you want a cheap, ultra-portable lens.So when you read Nikon, substitute Sigma or Tamron if you have one as there isn't much difference between them. The new 200-500mm lens is an exciting addition to Nikon’s super-telephoto range, as it offers superb performance, exceptional reach and it won’t break the bank. Turn fast-moving action into dazzling photo sequences—the electromagnetic diaphragm operates in sync for the fastest subjects and shutter speeds while Vibration Reduction image stabilization keeps your shots sharp and steady. First, we are still dealing with the same single threaded tripod foot that requires attaching a tripod plate.

Again sorry didn't know that, I also have the 200-500 and it's slow at focusing kind of thought the 200-600 would probably be the same.

High-speed AF operation : Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus performance with seamless manual override.

Although our team at Photography Life has not had a chance to test this particular combination due to the unavailability of the D500 in the US, we have been actively using the lens on camera bodies like the Nikon D7200, D750, D810 and D4S for this particular review. When traveling, one can lock the lens at its shortest length of 200mm using a switch on the side of the lens barrel, as pictured below. In some of the instances, such as birds in flight, fast-moving wildlife, and wildlife at distance, I stop down the lens to f/7. Additionally, an electromagnetic aperture mechanism is integrated into the lens design to provide greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with faster continuous shooting rates.I use a clear (UV) protective filter instead of a cap ( exactly like an iPhone) so I'm always ready to shoot instantly. That’s a lot of weight to keep steady out in front of you handheld, proper shooting technique or not.
