I have been waiting with anticipation for the specs of the 800mm f/5.6. I assumed it would be even heavier than the 600mm f/4. But it's nearly a half a kilo lighter!

I work often with the 400mm f/2.8 and TC-20c, but optical quality suffers. The 800mm is even 100g lighter than the 400mm...I want this lens!

It's nice to see that as much as Nikon is pushing the consumer/prosumer market, they are still on the cutting edge of high end optics.

Price is cutting edge too.. They took Canon's overpricing to a whole new level.
