Big lenses are not for everyone. Heavy, long and somewhat cumbersome to protect and care for while in the field - all that goes away once you're set up and feel the glee of the auto focus homing in on the target. After struggling with manual focus long lenses for decades, with no VR capability, it's hard to express how the combination of auto focus and vibration reduction drastically improve one's ratio of usable and pleasing images.

Expensive - youbetcha! Whether or not it's worth it depends upon the degree of your passion. I saved every penny for almost ten years to replace my Nikon 500mm manual focus with the 600mm f4 AF VR. Satisfaction is measured by the amazing percentage of in focus shots on fast moving subjects.

For what it's worth, I tried a couple after market brands for less money, but after trying them out for a day, returned them. The Nikon 600mm does exactly what it is supposed to do. A step up for sure.

Note: Wouldn't hurt to work out with barbells at the gym for at least a month before you take delivery.

As an addendum to my review of a year ago, I now own this lens and can say that it is the best lens I own. Fantastic! Excellent results, even with the 1.4x teleconverter.

Incredible images. Comparing this lens to my other telephoto lenses, is like comparing a Cadillac to a Chevy. Owning this lens for someone who shoots wildlife is a dream come true.

My only experience with this lens is a 5 day period that I rented it. Having said that, I now have set a goal of purchasing this lens within this year.

Before getting this lens in my hands, I thought I would be able to handhold shots using image stabilization. While this is possible, to get the full use from this lens a high quality tripod or at least a monopod is really a must. I have found this lens is just too big to be handheld on any long term photo shoot. My arms literally ached after a day of shooting eagles along Lake Pepin.

And you will be noticed. I was glad that the others watching and photographing the eagles were merely curious. This lens attacks a lot of attention, potentially good or bad! Everyone is interested in it, how heavy, how much does it cost and of course, the quality of the images you obtain.

The results speak for themselves. I posted a few of the several hundred shots made with this lens. The clarity, sharpness, color and bokeh are superb! If you have 10 grand burning a hole in your pocket, this is probably your best investment!

This is the best lens I have come across. I use with with my Nikon D300 on a Wimberly head + Gitzo tripod. I get sharp images of wild life and birds. I am trying to put this to good use for my Lunar Astrophotography and this does an awesome job. The Autofocus works well even with the 2X teleconverter, which is quite handy during a rough safari ride.

Strongly recommended for any serious nature / wild life photographer.

Yes, every once in a while I handhold this lens. And I can do so for a short time before I give up. I really should do it more often since it's great for developing upper body strength.

If you need a long lens, this is the lens to get. At f/4, it has a bright viewfinder and excellent autofocus capability. It will let your camera do its best at continual autofocus. It is spectacularly sharp and detailed with excellent contrast when used properly. If your subject can handle the depth of field, it is very usable at f/4. (But with this long a lens, f/4 is very shallow depth of field!) Even with a D800, this takes extremely sharp photos down to the pixel level. With a D4, this is capable of excellent action shots and solid series of a moving target while staying in focus.

It works great with a 1.4x teleconverter. There is some degradation of autofocus capture and tracking, and a little optical degradation that would not be noticeable except under lab conditions. You are FAR more likely to have blur from subject motion or camera shake than from the teleconverter combo. With a 2X teleconverter, it becomes fairly finicky. It is possible to get excellent photos, but you need to pay extreme attention to technique and conditions. Under many conditions, you are going to be much better off just cropping.

This lens really needs a gimbal mount and a tripod. I like the Really Right Stuff PG02 since I can also use the components as a panorama head. The lens foot supplied is mediocre. It's very tall for some reason. This will limit travel in some gimbal heads. I replaced the whole foot assembly with a more sturdy and streamlined one from Really Right Stuff. If your shooting precludes the use of a tripod, don't get this lens.
