Introduction

Real fun lenses apart from the price tag, good for every kind of telephoto photography. Bird photography, wildlife photography, sports photography, portraits, building from a distance, see, etc. This kind of focal length perhaps not very hand-holdable. A good tripod makes the thing more easy.
The following lenses available in this “crazy long” focal length (field of view on Aps-C camera 28cm from 10m, FF camera 45 cm from 10m):

Seems the new Canon 600mm f/4 is II is better even with the converter than the 800mm f5.6. Perhaps the 800mm Mk II is coming soon.

Nikon 1200-1700mm f5,6 manual focus

A very interesting lens.

Canon 1200mm f5,6 L USM

This lens is not in stock, Canon only produce it by order. Quite interesting, but very expensive. For this the tripod is a must, even for smaller lenses.

Minimal focusing distance: 14 m
Price: 90 000 -120 000 USD

800mm f8 mirror lenses
Mirror lenses are not like normal lenses, they have a design like telescopes, the bokeh can be nervous, on the other hand these lenses are usually compact.
From 200 Dollars
