First Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens reviews

70-200mm f/2.8E, 500mm f/5.6E and 200-500mm f/5.6E Kevin Lisota published his review of the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens: “Handling of the lens is very similar to carrying a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. It is easy to carry and handhold, where some of its larger siblings can be fatiguing or require a monopod for any significant amount of shooting. It is still ~3 lbs, so you will feel it on your shoulders if you carry it around for an extended period of time, like a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens.
