Nikon 800mm f/5.6

Nikon has announced the upcoming 800mm f/5.6 super-telephoto lens.  The lens is the longest Nikon AF lens – ahead of the 600mm f/4G VR.

The new 800mm monster will be on display at Photokina 2012.

No price or release date has been announced yet.  My estimate is that it will be in the same $14k range as the Canon 800mm f/5.6L and maybe Nikon will get more official about availability around Photokina.

Nikon has been providing service and support to professional photographers for roughly fifty years through the activities of its Nikon Professional Services (NPS).
