Comments: 52, on the topic: Announcement: Nikon Nikkor Z 800mm 1: 6.3 S VR PF

  • Nicholas

    Not a lens, but a dream ...

  • Jea reth

    I'm just making an observation.
    I look at such things, and it still seems to me that in terms of picture quality, building televisions is still easier than normal and especially wide-angle lenses. Do not misunderstand - good televisions in terms of design complexity will put everything you want on the shoulder blades. I'm talking about something else - that it's easier to get a technically excellent picture on televisions than on other types of glasses in the same price range.

    How many different TV sets I had - the picture always pleased me from the technical side. Well, minus the dubious antiquity. But the widths, as a rule, have always demonstrated the effect “good in general, but ...” - and this “but” is almost always present, even in top widths like the same electric ones that I dealt with ...

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Making a good shirik is very difficult. The same bright 24 1.4 cat cried, but there are a lot of all kinds of 300 2.8

      • Zhenya

        Arkady agrees with you about the number of 24 1.4 and 300 2.8.
        But I would take 300 2.8 as a reverse example, for example 28-35 1.8. Then everything is about the same. And in a pair of 24 1.4, you can put 300 1.8 (possibly bust)), but 200 2.0 is so accurate. And of course, I don’t argue that it’s more difficult to make shirik, in fact, televisions can churn out and much more seriously than they are now, it’s just that there is probably no need and they don’t see profitability.

      • Nicholas

        The key word here is "any"

  • Zhenya

    Glass fire. 800mm, and weighs like 200-500. Travel TV)
    With the widths, it’s clear that everyone has different requirements, the tamron 15-30 makes me quite happy even in the open at 36 mph.
    Maybe such an opinion is formed due to the main specifics of the application? That is, the width, as a rule, we shoot the landscape, and there, when zoomed in, we draw conclusions looking at the small details of the tree. Telephoto, on the other hand, has larger plans and, when enlarged, the brain compares what they see in reality with their eyes and what is in the picture, notices greater detail.
    And if we take in comparison sigma 10-20 4-5.6 and tamron even usd 70-300 vr, not to mention cheaper ones. Or higher class tamron 15-30 and nikon 200-500. They are comparable in quality to me. (I took examples that I actually used). Well, these are all amateur opinions, so do not swear)

  • Alexander Rifeev

    why such a monster weighing under 3 kg? :-)))) Nikon C910 superzoom gives at the far end about the same focal length :-))) I shot both the Moon and an airliner flying at an altitude of 9-10 km, the quality of the pictures is of course mediocre :-))

    • Zhenya

      You asked a question, and at the end you answered it yourself)) in fact, the lens is quite compact for its characteristics.
      When shooting wildlife with not very good lighting, it will give a good picture, thanks to the characteristics, stub and FF matrix, where your Nikon will not give acceptable quality even for a screensaver on a push-button phone) Everything has its own price and purpose.

      • Alexander Rifeev

        Nikon S9100 has an optical zoom to a focal length of up to 450 mm ... it has a digital zoom of 4x up to a focal length of 1800 mm ... having a 2x digital zoom we achieve the same focal lengths of 800 mm as this monster :-)) quality even in low light conditions on a summer evening is quite average

        • Specialist

          Give a picture of an airplane at an altitude of 9-10 km, and do not scare with a digital zoom.

          • Alexander Rifeev

            I wrote that the picture at such a focal length with such a zoom is very average in quality :-))))

        • Zhenya

          Let's not mention digital zoom at all, you yourself understand why. Regarding shooting in good weather, I agree that your camera will produce an acceptable 'amateur' result, but the illumination drops a little and no lens will save your tiny matrix in 2022. And I'm talking about static shooting, but imagine if you need to shoot something running)

          • Alex

            There, even in good weather, an acceptable result will be only when viewed on a smartphone screen. But as soon as you open a picture on a normal monitor (21″, at least), all acceptability will immediately disappear. And this is in screen size, there is nothing to say about viewing at 100 percent magnification.

  • Nicholas

    Why I wrote that this is a “dream” - for BIF (something like “birds in flight”) I use Nikon d500 and 500 PF 5,6. Crop 1,5 + 500mm lens gives 750 virtual mm. Very close to 800. BUT, this BUT always spoils everything. Crop, crop and crop again .... The aperture value in terms of the amount of light must also be taken into account - DIVIDE by 1,5) In sunny weather - do not care. And a little darker - ISO - tin. A couple of examples where the D500 AND 500 PF still work, but not as much as we would like :(

    • Arkady Shapoval

      That is, you believe that the crop factor affects aperture (in the sense of T-stops that affect shutter speed and / or ISO)
      And the second question - to share?

      • Nicholas

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hi_CkZ0sGAw

        On the second question - Yes, share, because. 1/1,4, or 1/5,6, etc.

        • Arkady Shapoval

          Horrible

      • Nicholas

        It would be more correct to divide by an additional 1.5

        • Alex

          You are wrong. The illumination of a unit area of ​​​​the matrix will be the same, both on the FF and on the crop. Multiplying by the crop factor is only worth it if you want to compare the degree of blur on cameras with different sensor sizes. Those. the blur on the crop will be the same as on the FF with an aperture of 6,3 * 1,5, but the exposure will remain the same.

          • Arkady Shapoval

            This is called equivalent aperture in terms of depth of field, but for some reason many people think that this also affects exposure. Many people believe so fanatically that I am even afraid to write something again about this.

            • Zhenya

              Then it’s even more logical not to multiply by 1.5, but divide by 1.1)) (for example) using the ff lens on the crop. After all, what kind of ff lens on a ff camera gives a vignette, but on a crop it will be absent, that is, in general, the overall exposure of the image will be higher)))

              • Arkady Shapoval

                In a previous comment, I just mentioned that people are so fanatically believing in their delusions that they are ready to come up with any reasons to continue to believe in it.
                Exposure is not vignetting. And the vignetting itself is highly dependent on the settings / parameters. Counterexample: if you shoot from 300 / 2,8 at F / 11, which completely removes the vignette, will you also have to divide / multiply by 1.1? And consider that it is worth not F / 11, but F / 12?
                I will be a little tougher than usual and point out that the comment above so far for 2022 includes the most ridiculous offer here on Radozhiv.

              • Zhenya

                Arkady, but this is a joke. Although I understand that you are not in the mood for jokes now.

              • Vlad

                I think that the person meant the effect of crop on the noise of the final photo. Crop makes about 2 times more noise than FF. Therefore, for the same noise level, the aperture on the crop should be 1.4 times wider. To set ISO two times lower than on FF. If you think so, then everything converges

              • Albert

                Certainly not a joke. This is complete nonsense. More than once I already meet some kind of heresy about crop and aperture ratio. Calm down and accept the truth

              • Zhenya

                I'm talking about a joke in my message, about dividing by 1,1. I just didn’t understand, Akradiy pointed out my absurdity about division, or the reasoning of a person talking about multiplication by 1.5. That's why I brought clarity. And so about aperture ratio, I think everything is clear to the majority and I think you should not react so sharply to misunderstanding, we were all at the beginning of the journey and did not understand much. But Arkady can be understood, understanding how much he has to hear it from year to year and prove it every time)

            • Alex

              “How did they intend to be so curious.” - light transmission is a characteristic of the lens only, it has nothing to do with the size of the matrix. How and with what they make measurements there, only Aperture is known.

        On takeoff...

  • Nicholas

    Sorry, I couldn't attach the file...

  • Nicholas

    And once again why is it a “dream” - I have a Z7II, with an AFS 500 lens for BIF it works disgustingly. (sometimes late. then by) And this 800ka is damn expensive.

  • Nicholas

    Well, to compare a sssssuper telephoto with a width ... to put it mildly, it’s not very correct. Completely different tasks and solutions. From my own experience in the z line, the best z 20 / 1.8

    • Zhenya

      Yes, that's understandable. Well, why not reflect, if this topic has been touched. Time is such that you try to be at least a little distracted so that the cap does not fly away.

  • Nicholas

    As an example Z7II + z20/1.8 Look at the corners :)

  • Alexander Rifeev

    as requested by the airliner at an altitude of 9-10 km ... the photo was taken by hand ... the image quality is mediocre

  • Alexander Rifeev

    the fakir was drunk and the trick failed :-)))) the original one was 2.56 Mb and did not fit according to the conditions of the site editor - now it is 986 Kb ... as requested by the aialiner at an altitude of 9-10 km ... the photo was taken by hand ... the image quality is mediocre
    ..

    • Zhenya

      As I said during the day, it’s quite good, and given that this is a compact, it’s even fire. In fact, the capabilities of the matrix, if you do not take its physical. The size won't be much different. That is, here a small part of the matrix from the same d800 (for example) saves the picture, through the calculated lens for it. A huge difference begins precisely in difficult conditions, low lighting, dynamics, etc. But even then, it is better to compare at least with 80-400mm)

  • Alexander Rifeev

    with original quality and cropping - now 1.18 Mb

    • Arkady Shapoval

      the quality is terrible (the blue channel is noisy like damn and this is in good light)
      In general, the potential of a sensor depends on its size.
      Your superzoom has a 1/2.3-inch sensor, physical dimensions 6,16 × 4,62 mm, which is 30 times smaller than a full frame sensor.
      30 times this is significant, catastrophically significant and you can’t think of any excuses here

      • Alexander Rifeev

        well, I don’t demand enthusiasm for this photo :-))) I just demonstrated how on a superzoom weighing 200 g you can get a picture like on a telephoto system 800 mm + digital camera with a total weight of up to 3 kg :-)) the quality is the same as in joke:
        the wife asks her husband: - why this month the salary is less than 100 dollars? husband: - yes, there was a corporate party and girls from erotic ballet were invited - we had to chip in 100 dollars each ... wife: - why is it so expensive? pay me 100 rubles and I'll show you no worse ... the husband gave a hundred, sat in a chair ... the wife depicts a striptease - a dressing gown to the left, panties with a bra to the right ... the husband looked, sighed and said: - yes, she is cheap - cheap :-))

        • Arkady Shapoval

          thank :)

        • Zhenya

          Thanks for the picture example and a good analogy with an anecdote) it's nice to hear sober and balanced thoughts.

      • Zhenya

        Arkady, I agree about the sensor area, which is why I wrote taking into account the physical. the size. I understand that this is all water, but theoretically if the d800 sensor is endowed with (30 times x 12 megapixels) = 360 megapixels, then with crop there will be a completely similar picture (assumptions). I do not argue with you, I understand your level of knowledge and experience. Or am I delusional? about the fact that a large matrix is ​​essentially a lot of small ones with a large pixel and, as a result, catching more light and the best characters coming out of here. dd for example. I apologize in advance, as most likely there is an article on the site that explains everything.

        • Arkady Shapoval

          + - something like this
          there are, of course, a million more nuances, such as the different process of these same matrices (the structure of subpixels), the aa filter over this matrix, etc.
          and you also need to take into account that you can’t install a high-quality fixed lens on a compact, you will always have to be content with a built-in super-zoom lens, which will always be significantly worse than a modern bright fix at equal aperture values

    • Nicholas

      The same. But D500 and 500mm f/5.6 PF

      • Nicholas

        Crop about 150%

      • Zhenya

        The quality, of course, is radically better, but the distance to the object can vary greatly, so it’s difficult to compare the incomparable) you have a cool bunch, of course. If possible, throw off examples of what kind of dynamics and on open photos. I think many will be interested even in compressed quality, and relatively on topic, televisions.

        • Nicholas

          Zhenya, I didn’t quite understand what examples to throw off and where.

  • Zhenya

    crop with attention to the line from the homeless body kit d700 + 200-500 500mm 5.6 1/8000 iso560.
    I think even such a simple photo is very problematic to repeat on a compact. Not to mention compared to the capabilities of the 800mm in its range.
