Here is a quick Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens review by Axel Güthner:The reputation of 300mm PF lens is top, therefore I was curious about this new AF-S 500mm F5,6 PF lens. I was always looking for a long telephoto lens suitable for travel purpose. I own a 200-400mm VR II lens, but for family holidays, it’s just too big to carry all day long.
