NIKKOR 500mm Vs. Canon EF 500mm Vs. Sony 500mm


NIKKOR 600mm Vs. Canon EF 600mm



Conclusion from DxOMark:

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.
