Nikon AF-S Nikkor 500mm and 600mm f/4G ED VR lens reviews: legendary performers in the rangeBy Kevin Carter - Wednesday July 10 2013 Lens Review
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.
