New 800mm lens announcement

Unread post by Scottm » Wed Jan 30, 2013 2:43 pm

For those that have a desire to get the best and have the funds available, have a look at the newly announced Nikon 800mm f5.6 VR that, by initial MTF charts, may be Nikon's best lens ever ... Got almost $18,000 lying around?

Photographs help to crystallize memories, but cannot be seen to be a replacement of them!

+ a 1.25 extender is included in the deal, so you are playing with 1000 mm. IF your camera has AF up to f/8.
Not posting much here anymore, but the photo's you can follow here There is plenty there.
