#1. "RE: Nikon Nikkor*ED IF 600mm f4 Ai-S For Sale" In response to Reply # 0
I am interested in this lens. Is it still available? Also, I would like to see some images taken with it. I recently owned a 500mm f4 P manual focus. I was not happy with it. Compared to my other lenses, including my 300mm f2.8 EDIF manual focus, is was not at all impressive. I would like to establish that the 600/4 is actually superior in image quality to the 500/4. Thanks
