Just 1.5kg for the 500mm are interesting

In collaboration with the stabilisation f/5.6 is rather good at this weight and size - and the lens appears to be more affordable than an f/4.

They're announced not "instead" of the faster lenses, but in addition to them. Those who have money to burn and more muscle can still, of course, buy the brand spankin' new 500/4, 600/4, etc.

What we're not seeing, of course, is the rebirth of the super fast lenses made in the film (or even pre-AF) days, like the Canon 50/1.0, Nikon 300/2, etc. Presumably with the high ISOs becoming practical and easy to use, there's just not enough demand anyway.

Noct 58/0.95, 50/1.2 don't count?

Just found a post on Nikon Rumors about a "hidden" video of this lens, which is on Nikon US only - and their marketing morons again were incapable to bublish it more widely. I like to share it not because of the lens but the pictures are partly stunning: https://www.nikonusa.com/en/nikon-produc...dzinski.bc
