Thanks for these samples. They look good, but I think my 200-500 can achieve this same level of sharpness. It looks like the real perks of the PF will be size, weight and faster AF.

Did you happen to try VR at slow shutter speeds, like around 1/80 where the 300PF had known issues?

Having used my 200-500 for a few years now and comparing it to the 500 PF, the 500 PF definitely has the edge and it's not just sharpness but AF speed, and low distortion and aberrations.

Some of the posted images were at 1/100sec, no issue.

Thanks, man.  That is good to hear.  Enjoy that thing!
