Nikkor 500 mm f/4G ED VR N: impressions of use, notes, sensations.

Duplicated: the TC 20 EIII is an emergency solution, many photographers consider the images obtained with this combination not acceptable, substantially blurred. I agree with them to all that lies beyond a certain distance, but if the subject is very close (and I mean a lot) you can use while maintaining a good quality in some cases; In any case, better to close at f/10-f/11.

A couple of examples:
Immagine Allegata: 1000 mm f10.2.jpg
Little Grebe, D800E, 1000 mm, 1/100 sec, f/10, ISO 1600, tripod.
Immagine Allegata: 1000 mm f10.jpg


Dragonfly in flight, D800E, 1000 mm, 1/500 sec, f/10, ISO 1250, handheld.
I open a small digression, to express my thought about the quality image that we can reach with the latest lenses, combined with new teleconverters (the new TC14E III and TC20 EIII have an aspherical lens), but especially with the new sensors that have significantly raised the bar for quality.


The adjective "unwatchable" may refers to the old TC with sensors of a generation ago, today it is not so, we moved in many cases from unwatchable to acceptable. By me, it depends on how the subject is close. It is a personal opinion and take it as such. End of the digression.


In summary, the 500 mm is born to be used without multipliers as many times as you can (obviously), I must also say that it supports the TC14EII, and in many situations I use this set-up with considerable satisfaction.

The TC20 EIII, which is the latest version, remains an emergency solution.

Test: Yes
