This will be huge for many of us, if the price is right. A lightweight, short, 600 mm prime.

"This year Nikon will introduce a new Nikkor 600mm f/5.6 PF lens. This information is coming from a very reliable source. I do not know the exact announcement date, but I will not be surprised if we hear about the new lens in the June-August timeframe."

Wow, that sounds exciting.
10cm shorter than the f/4. and obviously at f/5.6 the size of the glass elements will be quite a bit smaller. saving a lot on weight.

500 PF f5.6 about to be announced (so presume no 600) ... 24 cm long .....4300 usd

Expensive for f5.6 but 24 cm is short and luggable

Just saw it on Adorama for 3597 USD, the new 500mm f/5.6 pf

It says, 3.2 lbs which is a little less than 1500 gr. That is just amazing...

Theres a few pictures with it in peoples hands now and it does look smaller than I expected. I am thinking about it with the new mirrorless Z cams but waiting to see how they will handle ISO.

The 500s MTF chart is excellent.

Yes with 5.6 aperture a camera with good lowlight performance is even more important in these dark forests. But sounds like a fantastic lens for hiking wildlife watchers
