rwvaughn said:This lens does not make sense from a financial standpoint when you consider it's retail price as opposed to the 200-500mm f/5.6. When the TC feature of this new lens is kicked in the lens duplicates the 200-500 in focal range and f stop. Would anyone pay full retail for this lens when the 200-500 would save them nearly 10 grand? I'd be putting the money towards a D500 body and 200-500mm if I were a Nikonian.
You could say that in Canon-land too. The 100-400 is great for a lot of people. But the 200-400 is still better, even though the 100-400 is a great lens.
