"Official" Nikon 500 f/5.6E PF Discussion and Image Thread


FWIW...
https://nikonrumors.com/2018/06/14/nikon-announces-the-development-of-a-af-s-nikkor-500mm-f-5-6e-pf-ed-vr-lens.aspx/

Further details supposedly "later this year". But this confirms what was rumoured previously.

I'm not sure how I feel about this lens....I'm happy with my 300PF with 1.7TC which gives me a 500 f/6.7 lens and surely will be a smaller package than this lens will be. Still I also like to use Auto AF mode for fast BIF and I can't use that mode with the 300/1.7....that alone would be the reason I'd consider this lens...but I'm still not sure...if it is significantly smaller/lighter/easier to handhold and has faster AF than the 200-500 then that will help make a case for it....
