Nikon af-s 200-500mm f/5.6e ed vr test photos


I got the chance to borrow a Nikon AF-S 200-500mm 5.6e ed vr for a few test shots.

I have used a tripod and AF with one focus point aimed at the eye. Previously, AF are fine tuned in the camera.

The aim was to assess whether the lens has a satisfactory sharpness at 500mm.

What I can see from my test photos is, that it is a very sharp lens.

Though I am happy with my old Nikkor AF 300 f/4, Nikon af-s 200-500mm 5.6e ed vr seems to be sharper

Nikon af-s 70-300mm are a nice walk around lens, but are not quit as sharp as Nikon af-s 200-500mm
