Nikon announced a new lens on Tuesday 1/09. The AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR is a gold series NIKKOR lens that is a wildlife photographers dream. This lens comes with a 1.4 teleconverter built in so all you need to do if you need the extra reach is just flip the T.C. into place.
If you are interested you can pre-order one of these at B&H. There is a downside to this incredible lens... Are you ready? This lens will set you back $12,396.95. For reference, if anyone is inclined to help sponsor the Nature Photography Show I would accept this lens as sponsorship.
