Nikon has decided to start renewing some of its sports- or wildlife-oriented long lenses this year (and probably in 2014 too). Starting in January 2013, they offer a monster of a lens, the Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 E FL ED VR.

It’s a monster of price (18000 USD list price, but slightly better at B&H or Amazon), of weight (4.59 kg or 10.12 lb). But it’s also one of the longest focal you can really find on the market (older 1200mm heavy-weights are out-of-market, in all senses of the word).

The most prominent features are a dream for all photographers (in this category):

  • Two ED glass elements (“fluorite” for those more used to Canon language, despite the small differences between these technologies)
  • Electro-magnetically-controled diaphragm (like in the PC-E line of lenses)
  • Included TC800-1.25E ED extender designed specially to create a 1000mm f/7.1 beast (the first extender ever to include an ED glass element).

  1. This lens is delayed by a few weeks (officially, end of April). Probably nothing very noticeable, though.
