Along with the new CoolPix cameras, Nikon also released pair of FX lenses; a zoom lens (wide-angle 18-35mm f/3.5 – 4.5G ED) and a bank-breaking telephoto prime lens (AF-S 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR).
The new Nikkor bazooka has a native focal length of 800mm with an f/5.6 opening. That’s long right? In fact it’s the longest lens on Nikon’s stable, but users can still go longer as the this bad boy comes with a teleconverter which extends the length to 1000mm. The downside about it though is that the aperture will drop to f/7.1.
As mentioned earlier, this lens isn’t for everybody, especially if you don’t have little over Php700k to invest on a big ass lens. But if money isn’t an issue for you and you profession/hobby requires you to have one, we’re guessing that it’s gonna be worth every cent.
Now let’s get to the more realistically priced full-frame lens, the AF-S 18-35mm f/3.5 – 4.5G ED. This USD750 wide-angle lens is imbued with a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for a fast and silent autofocusing. It’s also lightweight (385g) and compact, making it a perfect companion to your full-frame Nikon DSLR.
