There’s no denying that the Sony a7 and a7R made quite the splash in the photographic industry both before and after their official arrival. With full-frame sensors, a mirrorless design and price tags that make at least the a7 cheaper than even the most affordable full-frame alternatives, Sony hit the trifecta.

But a new rumor seems to indicate that Nikon, at least, wants to get in on some of the action by releasing a new retro-styled full-frame that will compete directly with Sony’s offerings. Read more…

Nikon Officially Announces Development of the Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 VR Lens

A week ago we showed you a patent and reported on a well-established rumor that Nikon was on the verge of announcing an 800mm focal length lens, which would rank as the longest in its lineup since their last 800mm was discontinued in 2005. Today, that rumor became a reality when Nikon officially put up a press release announcing that development of the new FX, VR lens is indeed in the works, and that lucky attendees will get to see a display model at both The Open Championships golf tournament later this month and, of course, at Photokina in September.

Unfortunately, that’s all Nikon is disclosing right now, as a release date and suggested retail price for the lens have not yet been determined. But if you’d like to comb through the press release yourself, you can find it in full here.
