Nikkor 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR lense + 1.25x teleconverter to make it 1000mm F7.1; wow

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/29

Some boyish part in me screams “want this, want this, want this” (:

AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR AF-S TELECONVERTER TC800-1.25E ED with a lots of glass with a combined weight of about 5 kg.

Then he realizes the prize of the combination (close to USD 19k)…

Very limited number of parts, and limited stock in the “Nikon parts online” shop

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/12

If you consider buying from the new Nikon online parts shop, then please note that:

  • It has a very limited selection both in cameras (for instance, D700 is listed, but D300 is not), and parts (for instance both the D700 and D800 only list 5 parts each, most of which are parts for the outside of the body, similar for lenses like the 70-200 F 2.8 VR)
  • Some listed parts are not in stock and/or don’t have pictures

I really hope this changes for the better, as of a year ago, independent camera shops cannot order Nikon parts any more.

Thanks Nikon Rumours for pointing out this store exists at all.
