In Topic: Nikon 200-500 VR lens

What swayed me to the Sigma was that I like to support long lenses at, or even under the lens hood. The Sports supports being used as a push-pull zoom according to the manual, the others don't. Holding a heavy, long lens like that makes panning at ridiculous shutter speeds easier. This is a very specific usage and I know that the Nikon definitely is in the top three in this class of lenses.

I really like my Sigma Sports after I finetuned it using the dock. Here are some samples. I tried all the affordable supertele zooms before I decided on the Sigma. To me, it handles much better than the Nikon.

 

The advantage of finetuning using the dock instead of just performing an AF fine tune in the camera is that the correction curves are produced using 4 distances and 3 focal lengths. These more affordable lenses tend to vary much more in what correction is needed at different settings than your pro zooms.

Fallout’s link didn’t post. It seems like Irwin found the clip on youtube.

Impressive. Very nice craftsmanship. Have you done this before?

Yes, but a much simpler build. https://www.nikonfor...ter-from-a-kit/

 

There is quite a bit left to do when it comes to adjusting things by playing around with neck relief, string height, the height of the microphones and so on. I am not sure if the licensed Floyd Rose will stay or if it will be replaced by a Schaller unit, but the instrument is playable now and sounds great through the Vox.
