New 800mm lens announcement

Unread postby 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?

+ 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.

Feel free to use any of these additional letters to correct the spelling of words found in the above post: a-e-t-n-d-i-o-s-m-l-u-y-h-c
