Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR Lens
Key Features
  • F-Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/5.6 to f/32
  • One Phase Fresnel Element
  • Three Extra-Low Dispersion Elements
Contrary to popular belief, a super telephoto does not have to be a massive lens, proven here with the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR. Taking exceptionally long reach and giving it a hand-holdable form factor, this 500mm prime utilizes a unique Phase Fresnel element to greatly reduce the size and weight compared to previous versions of the focal length. This PF element, along with three extra-low dispersion elements, also helps to virtually eliminate color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve a high degree of clarity, sharpness, and color fidelity. Complementing this advanced optical design, individual elements also feature both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings to suppress flare and ghosting, as well as a protective fluorine coating to guard the optical system from dust and moisture.

Why would someone purchase this lens rather than the 200-5500 f5.6?
Asked by: Robert
It is much smaller and lighter therefore easier to handhold. The 500PF focuses faster. It is a prime lens. Probably superior IQ.

Will this lens be compatible with both the FTZ adapter AND 1.4 teleconverter (either F or new Z)? I would think the old F-mount tele attached to the lens, then to the FTZ should work... but would love someone to confirm.
