Nikon Nikkor 500mm f/4.0P IF ED lens + hard case + 1.4x Teleconverter (TC-14B) Excellent $1800
(a.k.a.) Nikkor ED 500mm 1:4 P
This special AIS "P" lens is like a Nikon AF-D lens without AF. - It has the locking aperture switch to f/22 - that allows you to use your electronic camera dial/wheel to choose the aperture you need - quick. - No need to reach and adjust the aperture ring on the lens! = Very convenient!
Aperture Priority Mode works great!
Aperture can be set in the traditional way with the Aperture ring unlocked on the lens: f/4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16 and 22.
But, why bother? - With the camera's dial/wheel you can also set anything in-between (electronically) QUICK: f/4.5, 5, 6.3, 7.1 ...13...18 etc.! - Only one other manual-focus lens can do this!
The camera displays show this info. And EXIF data are recorded in the photo files.
The lens is among two manual focus super telephoto lenses that has the "P" designation (Another was a special order super Zoom-Nikkor 1200-1700 f/5.6-8P ED-IF).
The 'P' indicates that the lens has embodied a CPU (central processing unit) in its design. When used with appropriate Nikon AF SLR cameras: the lens will completely integrate with the camera's complex matrix metering system via electronic data transfer between camera and the lens. Anyway, although it is not an autofocus lens. But this light weight 3kg (6.6-lbs.) super-telephoto lens has many reasons to be a good alternative to the 5.15kg (11.35-lbs.) Nikkor 400mm f/2.8 ED-IF and the 5.2kg (11.46-lbs.) Nikkor 600mm f/4.0 ED-IF.
