Announcing the super-telephoto, 800-mm, fixed focal length lens for pro photographers
We’re delighted to announce the new super-telephoto 800-mm, fixed focal length lens to our lineup of NIKKOR lenses. This lens will offer a fixed focal length of 800 mm, a maximum aperture of f/5.6, and will be fully compatible with Nikon FX-format cameras.
This lens has been developed in order to strengthen the NIKKOR lineup of super-telephoto lenses. It will boast the longest focal length of any NIKKOR autofocus lens, and will be best suited to capture a wide variety of decisive outdoor scenes, from sporting events to wildlife. In addition to its superior optical performance, the lens will offer excellent flexibility and mobility, as well as outstanding dust and water resistance.
Nikon has been providing service and support to professional photographers for roughly fifty years through the activities of its Nikon Professional Services (NPS). In addition we have also been an official sponsor of The Open Championship since 1993 (the oldest of the world’s four major tournaments in professional golf). This lens is scheduled to be on display at the Nikon service depot that will be set up for professional photographers working at the event this July 2012.
Furthermore, this lens is scheduled to be on display at Photokina 2012, one of the world’s largest photo and imaging exhibitions, to be held in Cologne, Germany this September.
