Just not thrilled like the other reviews.

  • Summary: I like this lens, but not thrilled with it. I can't really tell you why I am not fond of this lens, but It's not the lens I prefer using. Trust me, I keep trying to use it, but never happy with the pictures. Yes, I use a tripod and also tried a mono-pod.

REALLY heavy

  • Summary: This lens is slow to autofocus and VERY heavy. I knew that a lens of this size would have more weight than my smaller ones, but it even outweighed my expectations. Autofocus seems much slower than it should be.

Won't work with Nikon D500

Amazon Customer, Amazon
22 September 2011
  • Summary: We purchased this item to use with our Nikon D5000. Unfortunately it doesn't work with our camera body. From the manufacturer Unfortunately the 200-500 lens is not compatible with the D5000, because the D5000 does not have an auto focus motor in the body.

Limited Compatibility

  • Summary: Great lens, but it doesn't have it's own AF motor. It won't AF with base model cameras like the D3100. Kind of a big deal. Compatibility chart in the product description would be helpful.
