Introduction | Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4G ED VR image quality ranking | Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4G ED VR image quality ranking | Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4G ED VR fights off both Canon and Sony | Nikon 600mm f/4G ED VR vs Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS II USM: duel it out, but it’s a tie | Conclusion

While the benchmark scores are the same for the Nikon lenses as they are for the newer Canon models, in fairness, the metrics suggest the Nikon lenses aren’t quite a match for them in outright sharpness alone. But without a better, higher resolution camera to test them with it remains a draw in IQ. As for price, the Nikon pair are comparatively more affordable and a better value proposition. Either model will assure you of high imaging performance for many years to come and easily justify their legendary status.
