Today, Nikon is announcing three new lenses–and two of them are monsters. The company will soon be offering the new smaller AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm f2.8-4E EF VR along with new 500mm and 600mm lenses. The lens most likely to be purchased by folks is the 16-80mm f2.8-4, which is designed for APS-C sensor cameras and comes out to render a 24-120mm field of view. The ones that are more exciting though are the new 500mm and 600mm lenses. These are designed for photojournalists, sports shooters, and wildlife shooters.

And man, are they expensive.

Camera FV-5

When Nikon announced the update to their 300mm f4 earlier this year, the updates seemed very intriguing considering the way that they designed the lens. It features a special fresnel design that can keep the size down quite a bit, and in doing that they developed a lens that can easily fit into a camera bag while attached to your camera. That’s important for bird photographers, landscape photographers wildlife shooters, sports shooters, and those that like photographing random things and have lots of money to burn.

The 300mm f4E PR EF VR lens from Nikon has 9 aperture blades, 16 elements in 10 groups, and can focus as close as 4.6 feet. With the price tag coming in at just under $2,000, you’re still getting a pretty good deal, but that’s still quite expensive overall.

One thing’s for sure though: they sure didn’t skimp on the quality.

Every time a photographer wants to start to experiment with film, new excitement stirs. But at the same time, it’s always wise to take a great educated guess as far as what camera you want to start out with. For starters, consider not only the camera system but the lens system–just like in digital photography. Figuring out what films you want to work with is another headache but one that is significantly easier to do than what camera you’re working with.

For this reason, we’ve come up with our list of the best film cameras for any photographer to start out on.

Corey Jenkins is an advertising photographer located in Southern California and he’s always had a thing for photographing sports. In high school, he would photograph his friends riding skateboards, playing sports, riding bikes, etc. But a leg injury prevented him from running for a while and that solidified him spending time on the sidelines shooting rather than playing.

Flash forward to 2015, and he’s recently shown off an incredible photo project highlighting Crossfit athletes as they train for a competition. We talked to him about how he created the scenes, gaining the trust of athletes, and his mentality when going into the project.
