I've had mine for over a week or so, a mistake by Nikon, I've been under an embargo.

What do I think? Stunning lens considering the size and weight. It's quite amazing. Sharp from wide open, there is no need to stop down other than for DOF purposes. AF speed is fast, not 400 f2.8E FL VR fast, but I managed to track Peregrine Falcons with it and get some great shots. If the 400 f2.8 is a 9/10 for AF speed, then the 500 PF is a good 7.5/10, the 200-500 is a 5/10.

Sample gallery. Look at them at "original" size which is shown under the image. There are options for size: "Small", ",Medium", "Large" and "Original". Choose original as this is the largest size.

All EXIF intact and there is a drop down box under the image on my site which displays the EXIF as well.

Some samples all on the D850. Some cropped some original and uncropped.

Shot through mesh

Crop of above

That is the answer I am waiting. Nikon has my money on this one! Thank you for the comparison.

No problems, its a great lens!
