Learn about using the 200-500 Nikkor on the D500, a very good combo for bird photographers. Moderator and Nikon shooter Jonathan Kandel (JonK) joined Image Doctor Jason Odell (DrJay32) on a workshop to Florida.

I’m back from a four-day bird blind shoot in south Texas with Jason Odell and five other shooters. Jason and I shot with the 200-500mm lens on the D500 body; some others in the group shot with the D500 and exotic primes and some others shot with the 200-500mm on other bodies (there were, alas a few C*non shooters…)
I had planned to do a direct comparison with Jason’s 500mm f/4 but it did not make the trip; Jason opted to shoot exclusively with the 200-500mm. However, before the trip he did a comparison of the 200-500mm and the 500mm and posted it here.
