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.

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.
