Excerpt: I use this lens shooting wildlife. Heavy and sturdy, the lens can take a fair beating without getting bollixed up. With a D4s or D800 on the end it performs flawlessly, fast focusing and sharp. Balances nicely witha heavy body attached. I have hand held when absolulety required to.
Excerpt: After 2 months+ use I can say that this piece of glass is everything it should be. Sharp and well built, it is a heavy weight. But, just to prove that I could, I have shot it hand-held on a D4s. VR works! I've used the lens at near and below zero F temps without problem.
Excerpt: I returned this and got the Nikon 300mm 2.8 with a 2.0 teleconverter to achieve basically the same results. The lens is enormous and was just to heavy for a 5'4" woman to lug around or even think about hiking or anything with. I would only recommend it if you are big and strong and can handle it.
Excerpt: With my D810 behind this lens I'm getting amazing sharpness and detail and brilliant colors. I have wanted this lens for a long time and now I'm sorry I waited so long. You do need a robust tripod to anchor it down good. VR works great. I shoot mostly wildlife with this beast.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This lens is absolutely great for wildlife photography. I used it in combination with the Nikon D4 and I got razor sharp images. I was absolutely stoked with this lens. I thought the weight would be a problem but it wasn't.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this lens for wildlife photography, particularly birds in flight. It replaces my 500mm f4, which fell onto concrete floor and broke. I was at first a little worried about the weight, wondering if I could use it hand held. Well, yes I can.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this lens for wildlife and landscape. I am thrilled with the results already,(and I am still on a learning curve). I live in the NE and it has been too cold for me to spend the time need with this lens. I read all the reviews too and said "how heavy can it be?" it's pretty heavy.
Excerpt: Every review you read will basically say the same thing. Some concise, some with more details in description, some more eloquently written. But when you chisel away and get to the details they will all say the same thing * Its big-really big * Its Heavy- one of the heaviest * Its Expensive- Used car...
