p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Nikon announced 18-35mm and 800mm F/5.6 lenses


Have an extra $18,000?
Nikon just announced the AF-S Nikkor 18-35mm F3.5-4.5G full-frame wideangle zoom and the AF-S Nikkor 800mm F5.6E FL ED VR, a super-telephoto prime that comes with an custom 1.25x teleconverter for a 1000mm F7.1 on full-frame. It is the first teleconverter equipped with an ED lens element.

The 18-35mm wide-angle zoom will cost $749. The new 10-pound 800mm lens, which uses fluorite glass, will cost $17,899.

Pre-order:
---------------------------

AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Primary Features
  • An 18-35mm zoom lens that covers the ultra-wide to standard wide-angle range of focal lengths with approximately 1.9x magnification, supports maximum apertures of f/3.5-4.5, and offers compatibility with the FX format
  • A compact design that weighs just 385 g makes the lens small and light enough to take anywhere
  • A new optical design with superior resolution that makes the most of digital-SLR cameras with extremely high pixel counts, such as the D600
  • Constructed with two ED and three aspherical lens elements for superior aberration compensation
  • Superior rendering performance at all focusing distances, from minimum 28 cm to infinity
  • Equipped with a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for extremely quiet autofocusing
  • Equipped with two focus modes—autofocus with manual override (M/A) and manual focus (M)
  • A 7-blade rounded aperture for beautiful blur characteristics


AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR primary features:
  • An FX-format compatible AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR with the longest focal length in the history of NIKKOR autofocus lenses.
  • Constructed of two fluorite lens elements. The lens is equipped with two fluorite lens elements used in IC steppers and scanners that require extreme precision. The superior transmissivity from the infrared to ultra-violet range demonstrates superior chromatic aberration compensation throughout the visible range.
  • Equipped with two ED lens elements for sharp rendering and superior optical performance.
  • Nano Crystal Coat effectively prevents the internal reflections that cause ghost and flare.
  • When the teleconverter is used with this super-telephoto lens, the electromagnetic aperture built into the lens enables stable exposure control with high-speed continuous shooting.
  • Equipped with a vibration reduction (VR) mechanism offering performance equal to an increase in shutter speed of approximately 4.0 steps*.
  • A lightweight yet durable super-telephoto lens with the adoption of fluorite lens elements, which helps to reduce the weight of the lens significantly, and a magnesium alloy, which ensures strength and durability.


AF-S TELECONVERTER TC800-1.25E ED primary features
  • Designed exclusively for use with the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR. This teleconverter has been designed to produce images exhibiting the same rendering performance as the primary lens.
  • When used with the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR, focal length is increased by 1.25x for a focal length of 1000 mm (combined maximum aperture of f/7.1).
  • The first teleconverter equipped with an ED lens element.

Oh that 800 is a sweet lens and is handholdable too! Centre of gravity is quite nice. I'd say if you can handle a 200-400/4 you can do this baby.

Didn't see this new tele with it though. Anyway the lens on its own has lovely IQ.

Rodolfo, where are you? You will love this for your Airshows...

That money better spent toward a down-payment on house or almost a years worth of mortgage payments.

if it has less distortion and is sharper than the 16-35 stopped down i would consider one. need to see samples before deciding.

The 16-35's MSRP is almost twice the price, that's one reason. Another reason is weight & size. Finally, I don't understand why would anyone judge this lens before it's even tested. The 16-35 is indeed an excellent lens but it has its flaws (huge distortion, corner sharpness). Who knows how this one would perform?

$750 is indeed a little high, and it doesn't even have VR. However, Nikon packed this thing with 2 ED and 3 ASPH so I guess it's justified

The TC comes with the lens, it's the included accessory, so the $18,000 for a 1000mm f/11 seems kind of reasonable especially since all of the stuff they've put in it, soon their going to have to print it on two lines! VR N FL ED SWM SIC AF-S jeez

At least by the MTFs the new 18-35 seems much improved. We'll have to wait and see how well it does stopped down a stop.

Price is high, but all lens prices have been going up and if it's a very good performer I think the price is fair considering the ED and aspheric elements inside.

I have my 17-35 AFS which I find surprisingly good on my D800 at f/4 - it will be interesting to see if it will be worth the loss of f/2.8 to get a lighter lens and 1mm less wideness (and remember wideness is goodness).

If you don't like this price, just wait until the 16-35/2.8 comes out . . . .
