Too expensive and the 200 - 500 does a fabulous job without teleconverters.

The problem with this is when the operating system gets upgraded then this becomes redundant.

Never have been fooled by the Leica brand, it has to me always been overrated as a camera, demonstrated here. Brand names fail to impress, especially when they rip off customers with extortionate prices for below par performance. Leica, Hasselblad still living off their brand names but being caught out by arguably better value / quality flexible systems!

One thing learned, never spend too much on a single computer, it will be superseded and out spec'd within two years.

@moizes 2 : Your own language reflects misguided assumption, best keep watch on that instead of others. Enjoy your lens it must meet your expectation but it failed to meet ours. Gosh, is that the time!

Save the patronising lecture, as I said, for individuals like you, there would be on point!

moizes 2 : The 80 - 400 is a donkey of a lens but if you purchased one then of course it is the best long zoom that Nikon have produced! You appear to have a chip on your shoulder criticising others views. The reviews of the 80 - 400 support the comment made, it is not about knowing better than Nikon, after all, they have a product to sell but the 200 - 500 outperforms it, not just on sharpness but on practicality of use.

Of course they mean the newer version, not much better than the old one.

T3 : "What would be the point of a digital twin reflex?" What was the point of it when there were decent SLR's and other medium format with film along the design you suggested? For individuals like you, yes what would be the point!

The 80 - 400 is an awful lens and yes the 200 - 500 is a beautiful lens and far better than the 80 - 400. Returned our 80 - 400 it just did not cut the cloth too soft.

Complete tat! Something that is learned as one matures is that nothing is a "mistake", composition is the prerogative of the creator of a scene and alleged rules are to be broken. So shouting into a lens with hope of an audience with proclaim that your perception is right and others are wrong is arrogance and immature. Some "mstakes" can be done intentionally to provoke and create unease. If you think that creatives want to listen to someone shouting down at them by some loud mouthed kid then that would be your first mistake! Have a nice day!

These cameras have been well over priced for years, welcome to the real world Hasselblad. Look forward to the digital backs drop in price so that the v system make a comeback (Though it has always been around and popular, indicated by its price increase on used models)

It is what is best for an individual, not what some review informs. All our equipment is purchased to serve our purpose and is tailored to our needs, not someone else's.

sirhawkeye64 : Your comments are inaccurate with misguided assumptions, the D5000 series do not have 4k. You write a lot but say little, try and focus!
