There will be a new addition to the Australian GT field for this weekend’s Phillip Island Round.
Photographic brands have been making long telephoto zoom lenses for a few years now.
Sigma and Tamron really kicked off the long length trend with the 150-500mm and 200-400mm lenses.
Nikon’s first real entry into that range was the 80-400mm in 2001, they then followed that up with the 200-400mm f4 lens a few years later in 2003.
Both of those lenses were excellent, but they did have their downfalls, slow auto focus and not really super sharp.
Nikon has created a new addition to this range of lenses, which has fixed these previous flaws.
