500mm F4.5 EX DG APO (HSM)* with Nikon Autofocus


14 Apr 2016 11:58AM
I currently use the Pentax version of the 500mm F4.5 EX DG APO (HSM)* with a Pentax K-3. I plan to buy the Nikon D500 and would appreciate knowing the limitations of the 500mm F4.5 EX DG APO (HSM)* with Nikon's auto-focus system. I know I will appreciate the upgrade from a screw drive and also the focus limiter on the Sigma HSM version.

From reading the D5 manual I sense the 500mm F4.5 EX DG APO (HSM)* will not be able to utilize all the auto-focus capability of the D500. I would appreciate any insight into the limitations of Nikon's auto-focus may be using the 500mm F4.5 EX DG APO (HSM)*. Thanks for your help.
