A Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6E ED AF-S VR lens, aperture f/5.6, 1/4000 shutter speed, mounted on the Nikon D500 captured this bird in flight image. I’m certainly not alone in my enjoyment of the venerable Nikon D500/200-500mm combination.

The 1.5 crop factor of this APS-C camera coupled with the 200/500mm delivers a incredibly budget friendly f/5.6 750mm range without any of the image distortion, and auto focus degradation associated with teleconverters.

Even though the 45 mega pixel full frame capabilities of Nikon’s D850 complement the 200/500 quite nicely, this D500’s lower resolution produces a good result, particularly if the D850 output requires cropping which the D500’s 750mm equivalent range may not require.
