Nikon has really started to step it up in the professional mirrorless realm lately, and the new NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S lens is particularly emblematic of that, offering professional-level performance and image quality in an extremely portable design, all at a frankly insanely low price. This great video takes a first look at the new lens and what you can expect from it in real-world usage.
Coming to you from DPReview TV, this awesome video takes a look at the new Nikon NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S lens. We could easily sit here and talk about specs and all the design elements and features of the lens, but what is really impressive is the price. Sure, at $6,500, this lens will put a dent in your bank account, but when you compare it to other 800mm f/5.6 lenses (yes, it's f/6.3, but that's only a third of a stop of difference and practically negligible), the value potential is quite crazy. How good is it? Well, you could buy this lens and a top-of-the-line Nikon Z 9 to mount it to and still have spent $5,000 less than the cost of Canon RF 800mm f/5.6L. If Nikon can deliver good image quality and autofocus performance with this lens, they will put some serious pressure on Canon. Check out the video above for a good look at it.
