Mine has exceeded expectations both on my D7000 and D600. Best $365 I have spent on a lens.

I'm kinda curious what one would do on a D500.

They're available here for a song on the used market. Might be worth an experiment.


I've owned one for years and used it with a D3 for airshows because of its light weight. I used it on my D500 for the first time last week and it performed great. Fast to focus, much faster than the D3 and image quality was solid.

Thank you for the positive recommendation. I view that as a point in the favor of the old lens. It's kinda funny to think that it was pretty universally hated back when, but modern camera technology can make it a solid performer.

AFAIK the new AF-S version is sharper though.

Since I bought the 200-500 it stays home.


Mine too, but now, I have pulled it out of storage. I am sending it to Nikon for reconditioning.

I am going to start using it again, this time on the D500 and D850

Working it on the D850 right now
