  • Without any knowledge of DigitalCameraWorld's test procedures, which I couldn't find described anywhere, I suspect they're not well equipped to test long telephoto lenses, since the "highest ...
  • Bruce you're one of the photographers, I've been following since, you got your 500/5.6E PF lens, and your samples from both close up and far distance, has convinced me about this lens is the real ...
  • I agree - the 180-400/4E is a monster lens and I understand the exotic price, because it has exotic prime resolution at all focal lengths. I didn't write the 200mm data in the chart, but here is a ...
  • With results like your samples I understand why you don't look for tests any more :-D Since the announcement I believe I've followed every thread here, fredmiranda, and all other photo forums in ...
  • You're right that Lenstip/Optyczne's tested samples shows the 500/5.6E PF has considerable more resolution than the excellent 200-500/5.6E at 500mm. To me it would also be strange if a telephoto ...
  • Lenstip/Optyczne has just published their 200-500/5.6 test. Lenstip has been one of the more serious lens tests sites for many years. Here is my compilation of the MTF50 (lpmm) resolution tests of ...
  • One of the wildlife photographer's opinions I respect the most, Brad Hill, has just posted his first impressions after using the Z7 for 3 weeks. http://www.naturalart.ca/voice/blog.html#Z7_3weeks H ...
  • I'm happy to hear your D500 is already en route back to you. This means the Nikon Service Centre had a turnaround time of 6 days (including weekend) with this major repair, which must be rated as ...
  • I believe you forgot to delete the service order number and bill-to name in the mail text from Nikon. You can edit your post. Regards Ole Thorsen http://www.pbase.com/ole_thorsen OMNISCIENCE Knowin ...
  • Congratulations with your new D500. According to the EXIF data you actually used AF-C and Single Point AF Area Mode for this shot. Regards Ole Thorsen http://www.pbase.com/ole_thorsen OMNISCIENCE K ...
  • Because I've LED (Left Eye Dominance) my D500 display has HNG (Heavy Nose Grease) and my right eye has TPED (Thumb Poking Eye Damage), when I use the Sub-selector/Joystick for focus point ...
  • Replied in Lenstip tests
    Tony I don't know what you consider proper sharpness test. Lenstip.com is a serious lens testing site, and they have tested both the 300PF and 500PF lenses. They are fully transparent about their ...
  • Thanks for sharing these excellent samples with us, George. I'm happy to hear the AF speed with 1.4x TC is faster than the 200-500 lens without TC. I'm more and more hooked on getting this lens as ...
  • I see the 500PF lens as a ideal supplement to the 300PF in a leightweight telephoto kit. The 500PF is very sharp wide open both at 500mm f5.6 and 700 f8 (1.4x TC) and the AF is fast at 500mm and ...
  • Replied in Available light
    I don't know where you live in Oregon, but i.e. Portland is placed at a latitude of 45°31N with 2340 average yearly sunshine hours. For a European comparison Venice Italy is placed at a latitude ...
  • Thanks for this VR test. I assume these test pictures were taken with your D500. Was it without the MB-D17 grip? The VR=ON pictures is definitely sharper than VR=OFF as expected. Did you take test ...
  • I understand your preference for no grip, specially with the D500 which doesn't get a fps increase like other D8xx and D300 bodies do. You have both the D500 and the new 500mm f5.6 PF lens, and if ...
  • Thanks a lot for this well explained and performed test. Was this test for a D500 with MB-D17 Battery Grip? Regards Ole Thorsen http://www.pbase.com/ole_thorsen OMNISCIENCE Knowing what thou ...
  • Just a comment, AFAIK the site you linked to is the Nikon international download site with English language, covering: (1) English (for customers in Asia, Oceania, the Middle East, and Africa)
  • Thanks a lot for these super samples Lance. These look plenty sharp for me. Only in a few situations the background look fuzzy like the fence behind the eagle, but that can also occur with other ...
