Next Nikon announcement: new Nikkor 500mm f/4E FL ED VR and 600mm f/4E FL ED VR lenses

Last year I reported that Nikon will be refreshing their high end tele-lenses by adding a fluorite element (FL). There have been also a numerous patents filed for Nikkor FL telephoto lenses. Nikon will officially announce two new FL lenses in the next 30-60 days:

  • Nikkor AF-S 500mm f/4E FL ED VR
  • Nikkor AF-S 600mm f/4E FL ED VR

The current 500mm f/4G ED VR ($8,295) and 600mm f/4G ED VR ($9,699) versions were announced back in 2007 (pictured above). Of course the new models will be lighter, smaller, more expensive and with improved VR.
