500 F4 AF-S Version 1 or 2

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by RKnecht, Aug 13, 2008.

  1. Hello folks. I'm looking for a kind cafe member to send me RAW files from either a D2x or D3 and their 500 F4. I have found a few lenses for sale and I want to see RAW images from it. I know these lens are known to be really sharp and they also do well with the TC14EII or the TC17EII. So if you have images from that combo, you can send them as well. On a separate note, is it true that optically, both the AF-S V1 and AF-S V2 are the same? I own the 300 2.8 AF-S V1 so I am aware of the weight difference. Thanks in advance.

    The 500 afs1 and afs2 are optically the same. The only difference is afs 1 is heavier and does not focus as close.
