Hi Folks,

I am considering a used Nikon 800 mm F5.6 to go with a D850. Does anyone out there know if this lens has been updated by Nikon since its inception? I believe it's been around for about five years and want to be sure I know what I may be missing if I buy an older lens.


The current Nikon 800mm f5.6E is the state of the art lens same as the 400 f2.8E, 500 f4E and 600 f4E, we are still waiting for the 300 f2.8G to be updated to this spec so there is no likelihood of the 800mm or any of the other super telephoto lenses being updated for a few years yet.

I'm beginning to think Nikon has decided to skip the 300E and just go to the 300S, which will correspond with the release of the Z9 in time for the Olympics.
