When I posted https://www.photographerslounge.org/threads/34944/#post-219375 , I mentioned that it is difficult to get long fast lenses for ILCs (and particularly so if you want a long fast zoom lens). Not impossible, but not easy either. One of the aspects of "Wildlife photography for the rest of us" that I never mentioned was cost. Well, here's some news: Nikon has announced a couple of commendably fast long fixed lenses for its full frame cameras. The AF-S Nikkor 500mm F4E FL ED VR will cost $10,299.95; the AF-S Nikkor 600mm F4E FL ED VR will sell for $12,299.95. Both will be available mid-July. Upon reading ths news, my Scottish thrift genes kicked into full overdrive. I found myself kissing the FZ200 and cooing: "Who's a good little camera? Who's Daddy's favorite?" If I purchased a full-frame Nikon and one of those lenses (and for the record, I am absolutely positive that it would deliver astounding performance), I would only be able to use it for a month, at the end of which, I would have to "do myself in" and let the insurance pay the VISA bill. Cheers, Jock PS -- I have to be careful even reading the prices on those new lenses . . . I'm on blood thinners.
