Newly Arrived Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6 Lens
Picked up the new Nikon 200-500mm f/F.6 lens today and had a few minutes to take it out before the storms rolled in. After taking it out for about an hour I am happily surprised at the sharpness even at 500mm with poor lighting conditions. Despite the size and weight (over 5lbs) it is still manageable to shoot handheld although will take some getting used to. Excited to get some time out with it using a tripod or monopod. Autofocus seems to track well even on moving birds at nearly 500mm.
See below for some photos from my hike along the swamps. The photos were all taken from about 100+ yards away.
