300 PF works very well for figure skating as well. D5, 300/4E PF, f/4, 1/1000s, ISO 5000; cropped by about 1.25x. Kaethlyn Osmond took first place at Finlandia Trophy yesterday.

I have only had my copy of this lens for a week or so but really enjoying using it so far!
Teamed it up with my D500 and seems to make a nice combo.
Really pleased and surprised  with how it renders out of focus areas and it is proving itself to be a very versatile lens.
I have attached a few pics as examples if thats okay.
All the best Rich

Very nice samples! Looks like the D500 gives a bit more reach without any issues at all :)

I like all the images except the post processing of the last one, I think the image is too pale and bright.

Thank you Erik.
It does seem nice on the D500 with the extra reach but is also great on my D3.
Yep agree with the white Fallow deer buck ref.processing.
