Item description

When using on digital SLR (e.g. Nikon D40, D40x, D50, D60, D70, D70s, D80, D90, D100, D200, D300, D5000, D2Xs) a SUPERTELE with an equivalent focal distance of 975mm-1950mm results due to the extension of the focal distance by 1,5! (Or rather 1950mm-3900mm with optional 2x converter)

The walimex Telezoom Lens has an unusually long focal distance range of 650-1300mm at a speed of 1:8.0-16 (depending on focal distance). The sturdy metal casing and the high-quality coated glass lenses ensure a good image quality. The internal focusing (i.e. the front lens does not turn while focusing) enables the unproblematic use of polarising and graduated filters. With the help of the sturdy tripod mount ring the lens can be fastened to a tripod with an optimised balance point (because of the long focal distance we recommend the use of a tripod in order to achieve vibration-free exposure). With a comparatively short closest focusing distance of only 5 metres, the lens enables a sensational magnification at 1300mm. Focusing takes place manually. The lens can be used with aperture priority and manual exposure setting. Thanks to the easy handling, the lens is also especially suitable for beginners.

* Important note: Please consider, that on the Nikon models D40, D50, D70, D70s, D80, D90 and D100 the build-in exposure measurement does not work in connection with MF lenses. The exposure measuring must be effected external. All other analogue and digital Nikon models support the exposure measurement and aperture priority with this lens.
