I have just seen that Nikon have announced a new super telephoto lens is to be added to their range. It is a monster 800mm f5.6 FL ED VR lens. If 800mm isn’t enough reach for you then you’ll be glad to hear it comes with its own specially designed 1.25x teleconvertor. Each teleconvertor is specially constructed to work with each individual lens to ensure it doesn’t affect the optical performance. So that’s around a 1000mm reach in 35mm SLR talk. By anyones standard that’s a lot of mm’s!
Apparently the lens was used by a select few at the Olympics this summer and will go on general release in Europe on 4th April. Just enough time left to start saving the £15000 or so needed to get your hands on this beauty. No, I am not joking – £15000.
I would love to try one of these out so Nikon if you are reading this I am more than happy for you to send me one to review!
Anyway back in the real world ……..
