  • That is very interesting, so out of curiosity, I checked my serial number.  It is 201xxx and I received it on Sept. 13, the day they were first released.  So that would mean they shipped more than ...
  • Beautiful set of photos David!  You captured both the wildlife and atmosphere.
  • I have the 50mm f/1.4G. However I was not talking about the speed of AF but the ability to autofocus in very dim light.  My 300mm f/2.8 VR struggles to focus when there is very little light, it ...
  • I too had read the prior posts about the limitations on the amount of light that can be passed through to "the separator lenses, to the AF detector" being limited to that of an f/5.6 lens and was ...
  • I agree that it isn't the lens, however I wouldn't put the total blame on the software. The same pic I posted above which doesn't show the lens on DPReview I posted on flickr and it shows that the ...
  • Hi Barb, This is a pic with my D500 and the bare 300mm PF lens.  Also not showing up but does on my website on flickr.  Not sure what is happening but maybe a problem with the dpreview site? GHO ...
  • Where in Borneo are you going? Malaysia or Indonesia? Are you going down the Kinabatangan River on a boat? Even though it is jungle, the River is pretty open. We photographed the monkeys and pygmy ...
  • Borneo is amazing and you will have a great time! Before attempting to answer, a few questions. Do you know if you will be doing a lot of hiking in Borneo or is it more jeep/boat based? At least ...
  • Not that it helps, but as a non-NPS member I ordered one from B&H on Aug. 23,  a bit past midnight west coast time (right after the announcement and as soon as B&H made it available to order). ...
  • It is a good question but a lot may depend on the distance of the subject.  For example, if the subject almost fills the frame when shot with the 1.4TC versus if the subject is say 20% of the ...
  • I have both a 300mm f/2.8 and the 300mm f/4 PF and have used all 3 Nikon TCs on both. Clearly it is better to use these lenses without any TC but, at least in my opinion, the 1.4 is best, the ...
  • Nice shot Bill!  These are my favorite birds to photograph.  First, they hover in the sky (like a kite) when they hunt, allowing you to lock the focus on them.  Second, they are the most efficient ...
  • Replied in 600 Pf
    actually based on all the interest expressed on this board in a 600mm pf lens, it would be worse than the wait for the 500mm!  And now that everyone has experienced the pain of waiting, many ...
  • Hmm, not sure which wildlife you are thinking of at Yellowstone, but most of them will be at quite a distance, unless you are incredibly lucky, so don't think you would get eye shots, even with an ...
  • As an owner of the 500mm f/5.6PF lens for the last few months and the 200-500mm lens (though not the D850), I think you will be very happy with your decision/purchase!  Maybe it is my style of ...
  • Sorry, never have photographed "professional" sports events.  Just my grandkids playing soccer, basketball, etc (with my D500 and 70-200mm f/4).  I love owls and this is what I mostly use the ...
  • Yep one of the reasons that I have held onto my 300mm f/2.8 and 500mm f/4 even after I got the 200-500mm and 500mm f/5.6 lenses (and luckily I could afford to do this).  Nothing can substitute for ...
  • Well this is a radical thought (and you might want to try renting first to try), but wonder if the Sony A9 plus the Sony 300mm f/2.8 would focus faster than your D5 and Nikon 300mm f/2.8.  It ...
  • Wow you sure don't spare any expense in photographing these puppies (two D5s, the 180-400mm, 200mm f/2, the 70-200mm and a 300mm f/2.8)! Does the 70-200mm f/2.8 focus faster than the 300mm f/2.8? ...
