Nikon AF-S Nikkor 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR lens review

This Nikon AF-S Nikkor 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR lens ( $12,396.95 ) field test is by Kjetil Schjølberg ( Instagram ) – the pictures were taken with the D850 in Norway and Kenya: The last ten days I was able to test the new Nikon 180-400mm in a variety of situations. As mainly a wildlife photographer I used it to shoot some local beavers here in Norway, and I brought it along as my only lens for a workshop I led in Kenya

Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens for Nikon F-mount now available for pre-order

The Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD lens for Nikon F-mount is now available for pre-order at B&H . I believe this is an old lens ( announced in Japan in 2016 ?) and I am not sure why it just got listed for pre-order as a “new release”. Maybe this is a new version

The new Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art full frame lens will not be available for Nikon F-mount

Today Sigma announced the price and availability of their new Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art full frame lens that will be available for Sigma, Canon and Sony E mounts but not for Nikon F-mount. The reason is because Sigma is using a new autofocus motor (similar to the  Nikon AF-P lenses ). Here is the exact quote Sigma’s CEO Kazuto Yamaki gave Focus Numerique in an interview a few months ago: As for the Nikon mount, this comes from the new autofocus motor that we have implemented for this purpose.
