problems with performance against bright light, The NikkorAFS 200–500 mm f/5.6E ED VR is a very good answer of that renowned producer to lenses of similar class which have been offered by independent producers for many years. The Nikkor is an instrument d...
In the following years Sigma showed two versions of the ‘Bigma' (so the 50-500 mm model) and the 150-500 mm f/5.0-6.3 APO DG OS HSM.Big brands have been rather unwilling to enter that segment. Canon and Sony haven't offered similar constructions to this...

Sharp optics, Long telephoto reach, Fixed f/5,6 maximum aperture, Optical stabilization, Includes removable tripod collar
Competing lenses zoom further, Edges soft at 200mm, Not compatible with some older D-SLRs

Very good quality over 36Mp full-frame, even wide open, Good image stabilization, Constant f/5.6 focal ratio, Works well with 1.4x teleconverter, Weather sealing, Quiet, fast, and precise AF operation, Maximum magnification of 1:4.0 in MF
Not the cheapest super-telephoto zoom, Not the lightest lens in its class, Only 2.5x zoom range
Indeed at first glance, the AF-S 200-500mm f5.6E would seem like a response to the popular 150-600mm zoom options from Sigma and Tamron which filled a gap missing from both Nikon and Canon's catalogues. The price of the new Nikkor is also roughly similar...

This new 200-500mm lens is Nikon's first reasonably priced ultratelephoto. Birders and other ultratele users are breaking out the Champagne! Unlike the overpriced 80-400mm VR ($2,300 for just about the same thing), I expect this brand-new lens to be a win...
