Hello everyone It's me again..

I'm really happy with the new pf, Nikon saved the situation against the new mirrorless war with this lens.

If you interesting check the best detailed review so far from a professional https://youtu.be/5sWXqfO2th4


I want to start with my frustration about the waiting for the new 500mm pf lens.I read a lot reviews on the web for customers who prepaid almost 4k but still are without any updates/shipping more(3+months)from Nikon. Lol
Is this a joke?! Or Nikon became a broke Company who can't produce any stock..

Let me apologize to all Nikon users about this thing now
I wish to be rich and switch to Sony A9 with their new 400mm 2.8 FL but Unfortunately I can't even dare to dream about it. I knowww I'm complaining like a little girl but so much advertising and they're not able to keep up with the market!

Everyone's looking at the ROI figures where amount is not the
only point, time is there too. That explains the ad well before
the product is available.

I know, my 27 year old 600mm ƒ4 is huge, heavy, and not cheap
but the critical sharpness capability is just unbelievable.

Mind you, a 600 that would be PF… I wonder.

I'd like a 600mm but VR
I won't pay 6k for a 15 years old lens

Never took pf seriously, but in the right hands can be money maker, my opinion

I believe after the new pf arrival some Nikon users will take out their primes and try to sell it for less $

I never use VR with any of my lenses.

Waiting could be a very good strategy! Good luck.

I usually shoot fast enough that VR isn't needed...don't think I've ever turned it on...
