Somebody wants one of these:
Not me though - I already have a 2000mm f/11 telescope . . .
John, as you have 2 (or 3?) 16/3.5 copies I surely would like an extra 800/5.6, my most beloved lens, but the big problem is the cost
Who knows after a couple of years and IF the 800/5.6 VR drops one thousand dollars in price, these MF beauties can drop some hundreds or one thousand dollars too
I have to respectfully disagree with Peter B about MFocusing these 800/5.6 ais, since I have had no problem at all:
after I calibrated the grren dot focusing indicator for the camera/lens combination, I have had proper focusing on most shots; for example for the D3 my 800/5.6 was spot on the (O) green dot; for the D300 and D7000 it was a blinking (>O), and I need to test it properly for my new D600, but apparently it is also a spot on (O).
However, without any doubt, with TCs other than the TC14, the focusing is harder (green dot is intermitently blinking, due to low light levels) and live view can help a lot.
