Incredible might be an understatement! That is just an unreal shot. And this lens handles the 2X TC like a champ. Well done!


The weight certainly make it easier to handhold and when lighting and distance is suitable, TC is a lot of fun.

There are now two 800mm PF's currently out there, which thread is this for?

This 800mm PF
https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/918849-REG/nikon_2205_af_s_nikkor_800mm_f_5_6e.html

or this 800mm PF?
https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1679311-REG/nikon_nikkor_z_800mm_f_6_3.html?sts=pi&pim=Y


The first one is an F mount version 800/5.6e FL which does not have phase fresnel (PF). It is twice as heavy and about 2.5x more expensive. Z mount currently only have one 800mm which is your link and is the only 800mm that Nikon makes that has phase fresnel. There is already an official thread for 800/5.6e FL but it is not very active as I don't think many people own it due to weight and cost. However, hopefully 800PF thread would be more active as many people already ordered them.

Thanks for sharing. Looking good.

Man 400S and 800PF is a killer combo to own. I'd buy them both if I could mount them on an A1.

Looking forward to more shots from your outing next week!!


Yes, I think this combination will be it for me for a long time. This year, hopefully Nikon will release 85/1.2 sometimes during the second half of the year then I am done with buying lenses for a while.
The benefit of Z mount, I bought Sony 14/1.8 recently as it is better and much smaller and lighter than Sigma Art 14/1.8. While AF on Techart adapter is not good like some other Sony lenses, I plan to use it with manual focus for the Milky Way anyhow
