    Its hazy, so gonna be hard to shoot. There's a regular bird between the MRT and my place, and shot a few shots before coming back. These are SOOC JPEGs, no processing/no sharpening, no crop from the D810 "Normal" JPEG. Quick impression review - Its like the tamron 150-600.. (on spec slightly heavier but feels close). I like the tripod foot as allows me to hold the whole lens by the feet. The VR is amazing (there's a 1/100sec handheld no support shot below) AF is fast, tracking is good. The zooming grip is big and tight, no lens creep. The locking is only at 200mm (I guess for storage/packing) I'll have to wait for the haze to clear up a bit before i do more tests. I have the tc14iii from my 300pf and will test it out later. Click thru flickr link for full rez shots.

    Yes. Made in China.

    As an update, the Nikon 200-500/5.6 does not work with the Nikon J5. This is an odd issue on the J5 where it official does not support some tele-lens. It works well with my 300/4PF, but the 200-500mm doesn't work. (Camera just says not supported). It works great with my Nikon V2.

    How the focus response with v2? Is it same like the 300mm PF sometimes slow and hunting or focus faster? because may buy for the V3.
    Think of concepts and work towards it.

    A good photo's 45% you, 45% practice & 10% equipment. A bad photo share the same ratio.

    the roof water tank comparison, first look on the picture seem like Nikon is better but after pixel close look 156S have an edge over the N205 on sharpness and detail across the frame, N205 does have better colour.
    D750, D500 ---16-35 F4 VR, 24-70 F2.8, 70-200 F2.8 VRII, Sigma 150-600 F5-6.3 Sport.
