Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR

Question

How is it that the filter thread is only 52mm on AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR?

Your site says 52mm... the photos seems that the lens seems very large for a 52mm. I can only assume this may be a typo?

The 52mm filter is cradled in a holder that is then dropped into a slot at the rear of the lens. There is an optional Nikon 52mm polarizer filter that can also be used. I don’t believe anyone makes a filter large enough to fit the front element.

It's the same 52mm drop-in filter that's used on the 200-400 f/4 VR and the 500 f/4 VR (and maybe others).

I would assume just like the 600mm it has a drop in filter that is 52mm. I would guess that you aren't putting a treaded filter on the very end of this piece.

I can tell you this----The objective lens of the new Nikon 800mm f5.6 is EXACTLY the same diameter as the objective lens of the NIkon 400 f2.8. I own both and the Aqua Tech rep had this info in his file.

Question

Will the electronic diaphragm affect its compatibility with older cameras?

Though this question is purely out of curiosity, I was wondering if, with the new E designation, this would work on older cameras (the F5 for instance, or a D1).

Question

What makes this lens so pricey?

What is it about this lens that makes it worth $17K? Nikon produces great products, but is it really worth the almost 18 thousand dollars?

Design and production cost vs number of lense that will sell. It is probably inexpensive taking that into consideration.

Yes, the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR Lens is compatible with the TC-17E Teleconverter, however autofocus is available only with cameras that offer f/8 support. These include the D4, D800/D800E, D600 and D7100.

The AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR Lens comes with a matched 1.25x teleconverter (TC 800-1.25E).

For more information on teleconverter and lens compatibility please see this chart on NikonUSA.com:
