Nikon Introduces new fieldscope DSLR camera attachment FSA-L2


Press release:

Nikon Vision Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation, is pleased to present Fieldscope Digital SLR Camera Attachment FSA-L2 for use exclusively with Nikon EDG Fieldscopes and Nikon D-SLR cameras.
The Digital SLR Camera Attachment FSA-L2, which has 3.5x zoom and 500-1,750mm (f/5.9-21) focal length, used together with the new EDG Fieldscopes enables super-telephoto shooting with Nikon D-SLR cameras. The D-SLR camera’s Aperture-Priority Auto Mode can be used when the camera is connected to the FSA-L2 and EDG Fieldscope.
The new EDG Fieldscopes have been developed to provide excellent optical and mechanical performance, not only for observation but for digiscoping as well. The FSA-L2 features a bright optical path with fully multilayer-coated lenses. The combination of EDG Fieldscopes, the FSA-L2 and Nikon D-SLR cameras allows the capture of beautiful moments with high precision and superb image quality.

Key Features:

  • Quickly and easily attaches directly to the F-mount of a Nikon digital SLR camera, for easy connection with an EDG Fieldscope
  • Multilayer coating is applied to all lens elements for brighter optics
  • Zoom function features an internal vari-magnification system, with magnification of 3.5x
  • Focal length ranges from 500mm to 1,750mm when attached to EDG Fieldscope 85/85-A
  • Compatible with camera exposure modes: Metered Manual Mode and Aperture-Priority Auto Mode
  • Exterior design and color synchronized to match digital SLR camera and EDG fieldscope

Amazon will be soon taking pre-orders for the FSA-L2 (for now just email notification is available).

      can you shoot wildlife photos with that? Or is it targeted for sky photography?

      • Astrophotographer

        More likely field work. Astrophotography needs are different. I personally have effectively a 2800mm f10 (Celeston CPC11).

  • Bonetti

    Is it ED or N , FX or DX ,What is the Closest Focus?? Can it be use o a sunny day ?

    • better question would be, can it be used without sunny day? what is f with the converter attached?

      • Hey-nonny-mouse

        Says the fstop is f21 at 1,750mm…. you better hope it’s a sunny day.

        It will be interesting to see some photos with this, though I would not be expecting any miracles.

        • was expecting worse, f21 is yet fine. Though you will need about ISO 3200 in sunny day to get 1/1000 with that thing.

    I imagine that this would be very handy for photographing the moon! Alas, I’m sure I’ll never be able to afford it….

    • moon? is not on flickr already enough 🙂 Moon is boring, lets talk about wild animals and papparazzi work!

      • Hey-nonny-mouse

        Or Mars!!!! 🙂

  • Vishnu

    More like shoot the sun and present it as moon with that f.

  • David

    I have read many times here in response to user comments that this is a rumor site and that’s all it’s interested in. How is this a rumor?

    • STJ

      The rumor is that it works…. 😉

    • Willis

      It’s a rumor becausse although we’ve heard of these scopes, none of us has enough money to actually purchase one.

    • hey!

      Hey David! Go away then if this site is not to your liking. I am tired of idiots/trolls. Go to dpreview – they are many like you over there.

  • jon

    did i see a red ring there at the front of the lens???

    • Steve

      *cough*Canon L*cough*

  • Jay A

    Be nice if they re-introduced the old lens scope converter (i.e. convert you camera lens to a filed scope). I has one of thise at one time.

  • Bonetti
