Just bought this lens two weeks back and still experimenting with this super prime machine. I was able to shoot some of the stunning images of birds. I was shooting handheld and expecting that this lens can do miracles and improve the image qualities if mount it on tripod or mono pod.
I finally took the dive and bought this magnificent piece of engineering art after years of lusting. Even more so when the new E version came out. The Nikkor 600mm f/4E FL ED VR is the best lens I've ever used and I have a lot of Nikkor Gold-Ring N lenses, including the recently introduced 400mm...
I shoot sports on a monopod. The 600 FL makes it easier to track moving subjects since there is less weight at the end of the lens compared to the older glass version. It feels like it is easier to start and stop motion of the FL lens.
This is my fourth Nikkor Super telephoto Lens and is the best Nikon has released to date in the 600mm focal length to date. The new FL version brings a few benefits, like a redesigned lens that is better balanced and easier to handhold.
I felt in love with the lens right at the minute I lifted it out of the box. Comparing with my existing 600mm f4 G, I felt much lighter and better balance although it is only 3 lbs less. I could not shoot hand held with my existing lens but I could with this lens.
Possibly the sharpest lens ever made. The image stabilization is off the charts. I used it extensively photographing wildlife in Alaska. The weight reduction compared to the older versions is welcome. One of the best lines money can buy.
The other reviews have already described it well. This is a superb optic.
It was not easy selling my children into the circus and ultimately losing my wife because of it, but MAN was it worth it. This lens is the most superior optically to anything else anywhere. Heck it's build quality is so good I take it to company baseball games as my bat. Not to mention the AF speed.
If you shoot wildlife & Nikon - this should be in your bag, end of story.
Initial testing indicates that lens is quite sharp. Shooting in the real world will hopefully validate that assessment.
