The upcoming Nikon NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S Lens is expected to be officially announced around April 4th (±1 day), 2022. Nikon Rumors today has some additional information about the Nikon’s super-telephoto lens “NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR PF S“:
- Official announcement: April 4th or April 6th (±1 day)
- Scheduled to start shipping in May
- Professional-grade lens with “amazing” performance
- Optical performance equivalent to the F-mount lens “Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR“
- Price: Approximately $6,000 based on leaks from China (check the pricing info at B&H)
- Weight: 2.3kg (half the weight of the F mount version)
- This lens has already started mass production
Considering that the conventional “AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR” is a large lens with a total length of 461mm and a weight of 4,590g for $16,296.95, this new Nikon NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S lens becomes a surprisingly small, lightweight and low-priced lens. Since it is using a diffractive optical element, I am concerned about flare resistance when backlit, but I feel that it is acceptable if the price is $ 6000. It is rumored to be coming soon, so stay tuned for more information in the future.
