Thanx
my sweet spot is 7.1 though i do shoot wide open sometimes
only tc i have is the 1.4, not really happy with it on the D800, does better on my D3s but i don't use it often, the shots below are with it

D3s with tc

I got my 500VR after selling my 300 2.8 and 600 f4, for me its the prime spot for speed/focal length/weight. I've been really happy with it. though I do still miss my 300 at times. here's a couple shots with the 500, I typically use it bare, but sometimes with a 1.4x on.

Fantastic shots everyone !!!

Fantastic lens. Wish I could handhold mine Most of time use a monopod .
I am not happy with how the 1.4 TC works with the 500 either , rarely use a TC.

Like the various Nikon 300 2.8's, you rarely, if ever, hear about a bad copy of these lenses.

Great travel lens, haha - lugged mine to the Everglades recently:







Great for when you don't want to get any closer







Or even when you'd like to reach out and touch

Works well wide open. As it should.

D800, f/4, 1/160, 500 mm, ISO 1600

Nearly wide open - f/4.5 seems to offer slightly more vivid contrast.

D800, f/4.5, 1/1000, 500 mm, ISO 280

Stopping down to f/5.6 gets you a little more depth-of-field. I don't have much experience with smaller f-stops; the odd shot taken at f/8 has come out looking okay.

European Robin.
Not as good as with my D800E, but still nice at 1350mm.
