EISA TELEPHOTO LENS 2022-2023 Nikon NIKKOR Z 800mm F6.3 VR S

Ultra-telephoto lenses are usually associated with enormous size, heavy weight, and a hefty price. Nikon’s new 800mm telephoto lens is therefore a pleasant surprise, with its compact dimensions, low weight, and affordable price tag. Nikon has achieved this using a Phase Fresnel element, which allows the lens’s length to be greatly reduced. Additionally, several lens elements have been positioned to shift the centre of gravity close to the body, which makes handheld shooting a real possibility. Despite its reduced size, it still provides excellent image quality, ensuring this new telephoto offering will be a bestseller among wildlife photographers.
