Nikon announced the development of a super-telephoto, fixed focal length lens to add to its line-up of full frame (FX) NIKKOR lenses.
The 800mm, AF-S lens, with a bright aperture of f/5.6 and VR system, will be fully compatible with the auto focus system of all Nikon FX-format cameras.
The new lens has been developed to further strengthen the NIKKOR line-up of super-telephoto lenses. It will boast the longest focal length possessed by any NIKKOR autofocus lens, and has been designed with field sports, news and wildlife photographers in mind. In addition to its superior optical performance, the lens will offer dust and water resistance.
The lens will also be on show to the general public visiting Photokina 2012, the world’s largest photo and imaging exhibition, in Germany, from 18th – 23rd September 2012.
