The new 800mm AF-S lens offers a large aperture of f/5.6, and sports a Vibration Reduction system to make it "fully compatible with the autofocus system of all Nikon FX-format cameras", says Nikon.
"The new lens has been developed to further strengthen the Nikkor line-up of super-telephoto lenses. It will boast the longest focal length of any Nikkor autofocus lens, and has been designed with field sports, news and wildlife photographers in mind," adds the firm.
The lens is said to be dust and water resistant, and will be presented, for the first time, at Photokina in September.
Availability and pricing have yet to be determined.
