Been a long wait for my 800PF and the wait was well worth it. Here are a few shots spent with a pair of Hooded Mergansers. Not been much to shoot lately so I am still looking for some really good opportunities.

Here is a Northern Pintail set, the in-flight ones were on a pretty overcast day. This 800mm with the compression far out punches it's weight class for an f6.3 aperture in regards to the bokeh/OOF backgrounds and in my opinion handles the backlit spectral highlights much better then the 500PF does.

This set is fantastic... congratulations. The 800PF is a special lens. We Nikon shooters are fortunate that Nikon set the price where they did. While not inexpensive, it is not the $12000 plus that the 5.6 commands!

This is why I wanted the 800PF. While I enjoy photographing birds, I love wildlife landscapes.
I've seen a coyote in this area about once a month. Every time I've seen, it's gone quicker than my ability to grab a lens and shoot. On Sunday I caught a glimpse of it on a hill and it began to retreat. I grabbed the 800PF and ran parallel to the woods, and it appeared once again.
In my haste I forgot to activate VR (had just been shooting from a tripod w/ VR off). Fortunately, 20fps saved me, and I managed to nail a few in focus shots...
Both images were taken in DX mode... so 1200mm field of view @ 1/1250 second w/out VR!

Incredible tool for Nikon wildlife shooters!

Hey, thanks! Appreciate it.

OMG yes! the F mount 800 f5.6 is $17k brand new. This is the top end that I would pay for a lens unless I was making a living on wildlife photography. As it is I am make enough to cover some trips here and there but not the gear yet.

And we are spoiled! I know A LOT of Canon and Sony shooters seriously thinking of jumping to or back to Nikon because of the 400f2.8 TC, 600f4 TC and the 800PF lenses
