    Well, I assume you are a fan of 5566 - pretty obvious. Any good lens of this nature is easily 4 figure $1XXX. In addition, at such focal length you will need a reasonably good monopod to hold your lens up for sharp pics as you will be subjected to 'handshake' ( need to spend more $$$ ). These lens are 'huge' and heavy by nature . My advice to you is get closer to your subject with your existing zoom. Moreover, under what kind of lighting conditon will you be taking the pics ? Indoor ? or Outdoor ?

    Well, if you are loaded with $$$, then just buy it off the shelf of the camera shops

    Zoom lens up to 500mm? at the long range the quality will become almost unacceptable.

    I do not loan out camera lenses, but if you want to borrow some of my lenses you are welcome, I have a 50mm, 100mm macro, 400mm, 28-85, 28-135, 70-210.

    Just don't spoild it

    Well, in personal view, Zoom lens above 250mm seems to potray low contrast, high flare. Can't really blame the lens as it is actually pushing the limit of magnification, for an item, the bigger you magnify, the lower the quality.

    I don't charge to borrow my lens, but you will have to put a $400 deposit and will return every single cent to you when you return my lens in the original condition. The $400 deposit is just to make sure you don't run away with my lens . If you do not have $400, you could always leave an item which is of use and of equal value.

With Zoom lens, there are more elements in between and the lost of quality is even more.
