And lastly, I present you the Cadillac of all Nikon super telephoto lenses: the – the longest, the heaviest, the bulkiest and the priciest lens of them all. This is the lens that many wildlife photographers get, especially those that photograph birds. It goes without saying that you need a good support system for this lens – a very sturdy series tripod with a is what I would get to hold this monster. Couple it with a professional camera body like the Nikon D3s, and we are talking about a whopping 6.5 kilograms here!
One of our readers, Simon Speich sent me an interesting article that compares Canon and Nikon Telephoto lenses. He created a couple of fun charts that take into account lens weight, maximum aperture and focal length and he came up with a graph that shows which manufacturer offers the best focal length to weight ratio. Give it a read, I thought this was great to share with our readers!
Telephoto lenses for Nikon cameras
This collection includes lenses with a focal length greater than 90mm. Included in this group are prime (fixed focal length), zoom, and macro lenses.
To get close to a far off subject you'll want to rent a telephoto lens. For portraits and closer range action shots up to 200mm will do a great job. If you need a little more range for applications such as wildlife and birding check out lenses with ranges over 300mm.
Rent Nikon telephoto lenses for sports, vacations, performances, and if you haven't tried a macro lens, add one, you won't be disappointed.
