  • Michael

    Just one kilogram is pretty light

    • Arkady Shapoval

      And quite compact. But I had to make a traveling trunk (for the first time for 70-200 / 2.8 of all times and peoples)

  • koba

    Tamron recently released 70-180 / 2,8 for Sony, which is also quite compact, I hope it will appear for other mirrorless cameras, because most photographers will not be able to pay $ 2700 ...

    • Eugene o

      This in the countries of the former Soviet Union cannot, and then - with the exception of non-rubber. In the rest of the world, they can.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      He did not release it, but only announced the development

      • koba

        I will clarify - they can only in some countries, by the way, in the countries of the USSR they can too, but depending on who else can, I argue that someone will buy from Nikon, even an amateur, they will buy in China, most photographers will buy here, Nikon on I calculated this, since here, after all, Leica sells exactly half of her products and, as the local market has shown, they buy the most expensive models from her here, so, I think, Nikon calculated something similar - for the image, mainly for the Chinese market in particular. The six hundredth Mercedes is also not for everyone, but in the countries of the USSR and China they still buy it, Europe did not stand nearby.

          Tell me honestly, do you have WHAT to shoot for a lens for 2700 bucks? And you can SO shoot so that it is not a pity to spend these 2700 bucks? Little flower leaves, scary women, sunset in Zadryshchensk overlooking the barracks? Stop whining already. You have someone to blame for the inability to buy expensive equipment and certainly not the manufacturers thereof are to blame for this.

          • York

            Just wondering: how do you determine whether the model / subject matches the lens price?
            Tits in a square, conversion to holes and everything in a cube?
            Or hand-rising from a golden toilet?

            I worked for 15 years on a setup that costs a little more than your shmurdy, and you, and your boobs, and your whole thing, and all sorts of fly epithelium, plague sticks and pig embryos were filmed there - this, apparently, is simply unimaginable for you , Yes…

    Very expensive vacuum cleaner turned out
