Ok so who’s the target audience???

I'd be guessing it would be the "Enthusiast" market NOT the Pro market as pro's go for the huge expensive primes. Those not depending on their livelihood with the gear are enthusiasts. So I'd say that is what a 100-500 as posted would work very nicely indeed for. I've not typically found f8-f11 to be a complete deal breaker in all the light I'll typically be subjected to. The 100-500 is simply NOT an indoor lens by design, nor a outdoor low light lens either. I don't see that to be any reason to slam it for that alone. As long as it is sharp wide open, sharp in the corners maybe worst case stopped down ONE stop, no significant CA and good fast focus locking motor I for one would certainly be happy with it.

Name the gear and I've probably owned it and used it.
