The 500mm f/5.6 uses ultra-low dispersion glass to give superior resolution in a long telephoto design. It can be matched with the 2X Tele-Extender for use as a 1000mm f/11 lens. It is relatively portable for its focal length and maximum aperture.
Applications include sports, wildlife, fashion, and telephoto landcsape photography.
