Nikon finally introduced the Nikkor Z 800mm F6.3 VR S, a compact super telephoto lens. This is the first in-depth review of the lens. CameraLabs published their review for the new Nikon Nikkor Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S lens and as expected the lens is highly recommended.
The US price of the NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR PF S Lens is $6500. B&HPhoto already published the product page for the NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S lens.
The Nikkor Z 800mm F6.3 VR S lens is the longest Nikkor Z lens to date and is approximately 48% lighter and 16% shorter than the Nikon 800mm F5.6E FL ED AF-S VR Nikkor lens. Check out the Nikon Nikkor Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S Lens Review details.
From CameraLabs verdict:
“Nikon’s Z 800mm f6.3 VR S is a very good super-telephoto which is smaller and much lighter and more affordable than rival lenses for sports and wild-life photography. The lens produces very sharp images with virtually no field-curvature or colour aberrations and can confidently be used wide open. Combined with Nikon’s Z TC-1.4x teleconverter it still delivers sharp images but some acuity is lost. Its Bokeh is very nice and the optical image stabilization of 5 stops proves really helpful with the challenges of hand-holding an 800mm lens. This is also helped by being only half the weight of its predecessor, the AF-S 800mm f5.6E FL ED VR. All this makes the Z 800mm f6.3 VR S a unique lens which rightfully earns a Highly Recommended.”
