I received some information that the new Nikkor AF-S 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR lens ($17,896.95, 2% in rewards available) started shipping to NPS members. The lens was delayed and the new official release date is May 31, 2013. The manual is currently available online and can be downloaded here.
If anyone has some sample images taken with this lens and would like to share them online, please contact me.
Update: some sample images from the 800mm f/5.6 and size comparison with other Nikon lenses can be found here, here, here and here. More photos can be found on the Facebook page and blog of Willi Rolfes.
