Being a Canon and Pentax shooter, I have never looked at, or even seen any Nikon equipment. So this was an opportunity for me to take a gander. And I am glad I did. It was quite amazing.
Here in Thailand at several of the big malls. Canon has a store rented just for people to come in and see there photo and printer equipment. Which is a great way to promote there equipment. But Nikon does not have any stores to show there equipment off.
Here is a photo of a very small booth showing the super telephoto lenses. Of course this is where I stayed the whole time.. :)
From far right, the second lens to the left is the new 800mm F/5.6 lens. Mounted on a Nikon D800.
A first for me to see any of these lenses. And a real treat for me to see and shoot with the new 800mm lens.
I must say I was very impressed. the lenses were very tight and well made. As well as the cameras. After 20-30 shots with the D800 and the 800mm lens I was even more impressed.
With every shot I was thinking this would be the perfect lens for shooting shore birds. Incredibly sharp and not as big as I imagined it.
Very well made, and presented in a professional manner.
A real treat for me to see and play with the Nikon brand.
Have a good one.
