    Default The biggest lenses Nikon ever created

    Please tell me if you have ever seen the lens bigger than the legendary Nikon 300 f/2 AI-s.
    Hail Nikon !!

    Nikon only create around 450 peaces of this lens world wide.

    Some people say it is F-mount but I doubt so.

    I should say the biggest f2 F mount Nikon lens instead of the biggest Nikon lens.
    300mm f2 AI-s is no contest.

    I said carry alone and shoot, but I never said to hand hold this Nikon 300 f/2 AI-s mah
    A tripod or at least a monopod is a must.
    Right hand to hold the camera & press the shutter, left hand to turn the manual focus ring, and tripod/monopod to support the weight.

    Even if you have big biceps, you cannot get a sharp shoot by using your bare left hand to turn manual focus ring and support the 7.5kg lens (plus camera body weight) on the same time

    And attached to Nikon 1 body (2.7x crop), you will get 3240 - 4590 focal length.

    Was watching Nat Geo. Photo of a rhino. Real sharp since on HD. Commentator said it was shot 800 metres away. But the rhino's head (and its horns) fill the whole screen. Wondering what lens was used. Just wondering. My math is real bad. Some engineers out there? Thank you.

    If 800m then it is about 5 times the viewing at normal distance of 25m (800-400-200-100-50-25). So assuming you can get a similar size image at 25m with a 50mm lens, then you would need a (50-100-200-400-800-1600) 1600mm lens. I could be wrong.

    Don't forget HD is only 1080p. Have not factored in the crop.

    You may no need Nikkor 1200-1700 lens.

    It is possible to reach 1600mm focal length using Nikkor 600mm f/4 lens on DX body with 2x Teleconverter.
    600mm with 1.5 cropped factor and 2x Teleconverter = 600 x 1.5 x 2 = 1800 mm

    Also possible to reach 1600mm focal length using Nikkor 600mm f/4 lens on Nikon 1 body.
    600mm with 2.7 cropped factor = 600 x 2.7 = 1620 mm
