Nikkor AF-S 18-35mm 3,5-4,5G ED
Good news for the photographer on a budget, the 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED is an excellent travel and all-purpose lens, ideal for shooting indoors or in close quarters, capturing architecture and landscapes as well as group portraits.


Performance is optimized for ultra-high-pixel-count D-SLR cameras including the Nikon D800 series and D600, quality and performance packed within an extremely compact and lightweight 385g body, making it easy to carry while on location or on-the-go. Constructed with 12 elements in 8 groups, Nikon’s newest wide-angle lens features a seven-blade diaphragm that allows for beautiful and precise image blur, ED glass to help ensure outstanding performance with minimal chromatic aberration while Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating (SIC) reduces ghosting even in backlit situations. In addition to a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) that enables quiet AF operation with manual override .


Nikkor AF-S 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR
Introducing one of the most impressive feats of NIKKOR engineering yet - the remarkable full frame AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR. Offering sports, news and wildlife photographers the pinnacle of reach and performance, it combines advanced NIKKOR optics and lens technology within a dust- and water-resistant magnesium-alloy body. With Nikon's exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) providing ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing, lightweight fluorite lens elements improving optical performance and handling, Vibration Reduction enabling faster handheld shooting and an electromagnetic diaphragm for consistent exposures during high-speed bursts, the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR sets a new standard for super-telephoto lenses. And with the included AF-S Teleconverter TC800-1.25E ED, you can increase overall focal length to a whopping 1000mm (1500mm equivalent on DX-format cameras). Conquer distance like never before.

Aimed at professional photographers, the new Nikon lens is truly a monster-lens, but absolutely a perfect companion for a wildlife photographer. I know of a lot of photographers using a 600mm lens and adding a 1,4X tele-converter to add more reach, now Nikon has the solution for telephoto addicted photographers. It will be the longest focal-length lens in the collection to feature autofocus (Nikon has made longer lenses in the past but not with an AF feature). Would I buy one if I could ? Yes sir - one can only dream!




Go the distance - 800mm super-telephoto power plus an included 1.25x teleconverter...

As the longest lens in the NIKKOR lineup, the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR delivers an astounding 800mm (1200mm equivalent on DX-format cameras) of super-telephoto reach with a fast f/5.6 maximum aperture in a rugged, well-balanced design. But for even greater reach, the lens includes a matched 1.25x teleconverter (TC 800-1.25E). This high-performance 1.25x teleconverter has an Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element for superior sharpness and color correction, and it increases the lens' overall focal length to 1000mm (1500mm equivalent on DX-format cameras).
