Re: MF Super Telephoto Lens ??


The Nikkor 500mm f4 P IF-ED AI-P & the Nikkor 600mm f4 IF-ED New AI-S are both sharp wide open and do well on digital bodies.

There are also few 400mm Nikkors that have excellent performance on digital bodies.
The Nikkor 400mm f2.8 IF-ED AI-S and the 400mm f5.6 ED or P.C. versions.

Nikkor also made a few zooms that are fairly sharp on digital bodies.
The Zoom-Nikkor 200-400mm f4 ED AI-S and the Zoom-Nikkor 180-600mm f8 ED AI-S.

Third party lens builder Koburi built a very solid 120-600mm f5.6 that does fairly decent...these were usually sold by Vivitar and Soligor gmbH (Germany)...the Vivitar 120-600mm f5.6 version can usually be found on ebay cheap.These are fairly sharp at the long end.

Koburi built Vivitar 120-600mm 5.6 racked out to 350mm






Pentacon 5.6/500 can usually be found on German ebay site...the Pentacons are fairly sharp with decent contrast...but they are a monster of a lens.











Novoflex made some sharp super telephoto lens from 400mm to 680mm...tried a few of these,they are indeed sharp
Century PrecisionOptics also made a 500/3.8 & a 5.6 version,a 600/4.5,a 800/4.7,a 1000/8 and a 1200/6.8...tired a few of these,they do surprisingly well.

Tamron made a few primes in their adaptall-2 mount like the 300/2.8 and the 400/4 and the 200-500/5.6

Pentax made the 500/4.5 which is supposed to do OK...but I've never tried this lens...also heard the mount usually needs tightening on these...several sources for doing this operation are available on the net.

Pentax also had a few other super telephotos that got excellent reviews such as the 600.5.6 ED

Tokina made a 300mm f2.8 and a 400mm f5.6,also a 150-500mm f5.6 zoom that started to get soft above 300mm....never tried any of these.
