Re: Nikon announced 18-35mm and 800mm F/5.6 lenses


Finally, Nikon is getting into fluorite lens elements.

That 800mm lens looks nice, and its dedicated TC sounds like a very smart move in order to ensure a dependable quality of FL extension.

A goodly number of elements, i.e., 20, compared to Canon's 14 elements in their 8oomm lens. As a result, the weight of Nikkor 800 doesn't come as a surprise: about 100 g more than Canon 800. We were kinda expecting a bit better there.

Furthermore, both lenses have the same MFD....6m, which is often quite limiting.

However, in the end it will be IQ, and AF responsiveness to some extent, which will decide the lens' success. For $18,000 its performance should be truly excellent, but, as always, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
