1.75m minimum focus distance, not quite a modern lens design parameter.
The Sony 70-400 and Sigma 50-500 are still better buy, as the price difference to the Nikkor is enough to buy an entry level DSLT/DSLR body.
RubberDials: Every other camera manufacturer has centre pinch caps - Sony, Pentax, Nikon, Olympus - even Minolta had them.
There's me thinking it's finally time for Canon to come clean with it's users and give them in-body IS and they roll out centre-pinch caps. Simply amazing.
Wrong understanding that IBIS needs lens with larger image circle. What it needs is larger sensor to move around.
Well, at least it is more reasonably priced than the $7,195 50mmF2
