The M-ultra-fast System's wide-angle lens now comes in a new'resilient' form. The modest appearance of this optic, which has a specialty paint finish that offers scratch resistance, making it excellent for classic reportage photography. The light green inlay engravings on the lens were created to complement the M10-P Reporter model, but they would look great on any Leica M-series camera. The Matte Black version of the Summicron M 28 f/2 ASPH has an integrated lens hood that extends with a single rapid twist, unlike the ordinary Summicron M 28 f/2 ASPH. Price: £4,000/$4,495;

Nikkor Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S

The new optic is 1/3 stop slower than the F-mount DSLR version, but it's a lot less expensive and weighs a whopping 2.3kg less. The Nikkor 800mm f5.6E FL ED VR F-mount DSLR lens isn't cheap at £6,299/$6,497, but it's still a third of the price of the Nikkor 800mm f5.6E FL ED VR F-mount DSLR lens. Nikon was able to create the Nikkor Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S an astonishing 2.3kg lighter and 16 percent shorter than the DSLR lens by utilising the advantages of the Nikon Z lens mount and including a Phase Fresnel (PF) lens element.

Nikkor Z 800mm f6.3 VR S

Because of this, Nikon claims that the new Z-mount 800mm is suitable for handheld shooting, especially with the built-in VR optical stabilisation. This gives up to 5.5 stops of Synchro VR stability when used in conjunction with the new Nikon Z 9's in-body stabilisation. The Z Teleconverter TC-1.4x and Z Teleconverter TC-2.0x, which expand the focal length to 1120mm and 1600mm, respectively, are also compatible with the Nikkor Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S. The pricing of the Nikkor Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S places it more in the realm of expert hobbyists and pros, and while it's a crucial addition to the Nikon Z lens lineup for the latter, it's a considerably more inexpensive option than the previous 800mm f5.6E FL ED VR F-mount DSLR lens. The Nikkor Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S is on sale now. Price £6,299/$6,497
