Enjoying The Nikon 500mm f/4

The Nikon 500mm f/4 is one of those long prine telephoto lenses you will need someday, especially if you're heading out to capture anything wild, or fast.  The reach of a 500mm is one of those go to lenses pros like to use.  Though Nikon now has released an 800mm f/5.6 that has every wildlife and sports photographer drooling over.  What keeps most of us from jumping on that bandwagon is the price - $17,000.  Cheap it's not.  Nikon also makes a 400mm f/2.8 (super fast tely), 600mm f/4 and another pro zoom telephoto, the 200-400mm f/4.  They all come with Nikon's VR system (vibration reduction), and fast af-s auto focusing. A qulaity telephoto zoom lens also made by Nikon is their refreshed 80-400mm vr afs. These lenses are built like tanks, and even weigh like one too.  Using a tripod is a must, but, if you've got the arm strength shooting without a tripod works when your desparate to catch something quickly before you can set up the lens on a tripod.  I've been shooting with the 500mm for some time now, and love its quick focusing and image quality it produces.  The old adage of investing in the best glass you can afford definitely appplies to this lens.  I've used this lens for wildlife, and even landscape imagery.  The 500mm really compresses a scene down for landscape shooting.  Try it sometime with the longest lens you own.  You might like the look of a long compressed landscape image.  If you can't afford any of these fast prime telephotos, there are two top notch camera and lens rental companies out there,  borrowlenses.com and lensrental.com.  These primes are a must if you're going on a once in a lifetime safari trip, or if you're heading to any of the national parks to shoot wildlife.  They also work well when you're shooting the various air shows in the summer time.  They are over kill for your kid's soccer game.  The photos shown here were all shot with the Nikon 500mm.  Other camera manufacturers have long telephotos too, but it seems that Nikon and Canon offer the most choices, though Sigma has some quite notable quality telephotos too.
