If that lens would ever be made it would of course have some advantages. It would be slightly smaller than the FX version (not larger like that blog states) and the N1 cameras would be able to use all the AF points and features which are now blocked. That's all. But it would probably be as expansive as a 190-810 lens would be, so very few would be interested in buying it. So, whoever expects this lens to be small, light and cheap is just having a pipe dream. It is not going to happen for real.

LOL. That's simply hilarious. You REALLY think that there's going the an $8000 Nikon 1 lens?

Because that's what the 300-800mm Sigma costs.

The 800mm f5.6 Canon prime costs $13,000.

The Nikon 800mm f5.6 prime costs $17,000.

What pipe are you smoking because it obviously has pretty good stuff in it.

Dude, it seems that YOU are the one smoking here...

Yes, it would be as expensive as those lenses if it would be made equivalent.

No, I don't think Nikon will ever make a lens equivalent to those you mentioned. A 300/2 lens is what would be equivalent to that Nikon/Canon prime, not a 300/5.6. Also the Sigma you mention is wrong, not equivalent at all. It is a constant f/5.6 zoom, so yes, a constant 70-300/2 for the Nikon 1 would cost about the same, probably more due to the even lower sales volume. You need a reality check.
