Here is a roundup reviews of new released Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR Lens. This lens sells very well around the world, currently out of stock at B&H Photo Video/Adorama/Amazon/Focus Camera.
Reviews from Techradar:
The compact design Nikon has managed to engineer for the AF-S 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR is really impressive, but perhaps equally as impressive is the fact that image quality hasn’t been compromised.
“The extra stop of light afforded by the AF-S 500mm f/4E FL ED VR will appeal to some, but if you’re shooting with one of Nikon’s latest full-frame DSLRs, cranking up the ISO by a stop to achieve the same shutter speed with the AF-S 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR isn’t that big of a deal.”
Reviews from Redbull:
“When I was told the lens I was testing was a 500mm 5.6 I started to think about hitting the gym before the shoot. I began lifting my 400mm 2.8 while watching TV just to shape up. When I finally got a first glance at the lens, I thought that something was lost in translation. The lens looked like a 70-200, and the weight was more or less the same. My last f5.6 glass was a kit lens that came with my first camera 10 years ago, so there was definitely enough room to surprise me.”
