Nikon has announced the development of the AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens. It is significantly smaller and lighter than comparable camera lenses due to the adoption of Phase Fresnel lens elements. The PF element first appeared in the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR lens (above) back in 2015.
Details are scarce and there are no photos released yet. Nikon says final pricing and availability info will come later this year. Check out the press release below. [Read more…]
