Nikon 800mm and TC-800 1.25x teleconverter

AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR and AF-S TELECONVERTER TC800-1.25E ED

http://nps.nikon.com.au/pages/newsup...118-879262089}

Nikon has announced the 800mm and the new 1.25x TC specifically for this lens. I wouldn't mind having this lens - but the F/7.1 aperture with the TC on is not so great, though we can get around it with the higher ISO we have on newer Nikon cameras.

Yeah I wouldn't "mind" having a $16,000 lens either.

Sadly it won't fit in my shirt pocket; otherwise I'd have bought two immediately

(maybe a fanny pack will do?)

I think Nikon priced that lens out of the ballpark. Too bad because I bet it's a great lens.

I've seen images taken with it and the D4, staggering. And on the D800, it'll be even better with the 36.3mp. Let's hope I can get my hands on one to test.

Actually it's $13,000, and that's a $3000 difference.
To put into perspective you could get a brand new D800 with that much money and still have enough left for a nifty fifty.
