The Event

As part of Global Goals Week, the Skoll Foundation and the United Nations Foundation are pleased to present We the Future: Accelerating Sustainable Development Solutions on September 21, 2017 at TED Theater in New York.
The Sustainable Development Goals, created in partnership with individuals around the world and adopted by world leaders at the United Nations, present a bold vision for the future: a world without poverty or hunger, in which all people have access to healthcare, education and economic opportunity, and where thriving ecosystems are protected. The 17 goals are integrated and interdependent, spanning economic, social, and environmental imperatives.
Incremental change will not manifest this new world by 2030. Such a shift requires deep, systemic change. As global leaders gather for the 72nd Session of the UN General Assembly in September, this is the moment to come together to share models that are transforming the way we approach the goals and equipping local and global leaders across sectors to accelerate achievement of the SDGs.




Together with innovators from around the globe, we will showcase and discuss bold models of systemic change that have been proven and applied on a local, regional, and global scale. A curated audience of social entrepreneurs, corporate pioneers, government innovators, artistic geniuses, and others will explore how we can learn from, strengthen, and scale the approaches that are working to create a world of sustainable peace and prosperity.

December 1, 2020 by 0

But besides costing around $8000 less then the Nikon lens, it has a few other advantages over its prime equivalent. Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM Deals. It is a I bought the Nikon 200-400mm for its zoom capabilities, but the lens turned out to be heavier, bulkier and it just does not tolerate anything longer than the TC-14E II. It does have a couple of annoyances that I hope Nikon fixes on a future version of this lens. An incredibly feature-packed camera for its size and price point, the a6500 is a superb achievement of imaging technology. It boasts silent wave motor tech that is quiet and fast. The Nikon 600mm + TC-14E II performs the best wide open with the 500mm + TC-17E II coming in second and 400mm + TC-20E III coming last, but when all three are stopped down to f/8, those differences pretty much go away. Venture into the wild. Using a teleconverter is an affordable option when you want to increase your photographic reach without having to purchase a super-telephoto lens. Get the Right Lens for Your Camera. Choosing between the three Nikon super telephoto lenses can be difficult, given the weight/size considerations and how many different combinations you can do with teleconverters to get to a certain focal length. I spend a lot of time shooting birds, hand held and in low light. Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G VR II. Yes, it’s ridiculously expensive.

It goes without saying that you need a good support system for this lens – a very sturdy Gitzo Systematic series tripod with a Wimberley Gimbal head is what I would get to hold this monster. In fact, Nikon specifically released the TC-20E III together with this lens, which makes this lens almost like a “reference” lens for use with teleconverters (with the TC-20E III, the lens becomes a 600mm f/5.6 lens). When I use the Nikon 300mm f/4 lens, I always keep the shutter speed fast, knowing that I do not have VR. Couple it with a professional camera body like the Nikon D3s, and we are talking about a whopping 6.5 kilograms here! If you have a favorite lens of yours for wildlife photography that is not listed below, please feel free to add a comment on the bottom of the page with some information and links to pictures (if you have any that you would like to share). 4) Weight (I travel and luggage weight is always an issue) 5) zoom vs prime – your thoughts? Nikon Authorized Dealers - Sport Optics (PDF). Please let me know if you have any questions! Read more about Nasim here. But its biggest problem is not the 40mm shorter focal length – it has one notable weakness, which only shows up when you photograph anything at a distance.

Nikon has released an updated version of its visual lens roadmap for Z-mount camera systems, revealing silhouettes of three upcoming lenses, including two super-telephoto lenses and one macro prime lens. While its rather short on the long side, it is one of the few Nikon lenses that works with all current Nikon teleconverters. So if your focal length is 300mm, then your shutter speed should be faster than 1/300 of a second. See my detailed Nikon 300mm f/2.8G VR II Review for more information on this lens.

This is the lens that many wildlife photographers get, especially those that photograph birds. Photographers wishing for Nikon to offer a cheaper model of a super-telephoto lens should check out the AF-S FX NIKKOR 200-500mm. They are more than the required focal length for wildlife photography. Yes, in good light you can get some decent results with the TC-17E II, but the lens will occasionally hunt.

If AF accuracy on the Nikon D4 is indeed better than on the D3s when teleconverters are used (with working AF at f/8), then the Nikon 500mm might be a better choice over the 400mm (850mm with TC-17E II and 1000mm with TC-20E III vs 800mm with TC-20E III) for reach. Where would you put these three lenses in your overall ranking? Thanks.

I am not sure if I should just buy an all around lens that will let me take pictures of birds and also close ups of snakes and other retiles and amphibians or if I should get two separate lenses that give me better performance for both types of pictures (long range and up close). I am going to upgrade this month to a real wildlife/bird lens. If you want to get into wildlife photography on a tight budget, the Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR is the lens you want to get.

Sigma's 150-600mm Sport is a highly desirable lens for sport and wildlife photographers who demand a super-telephoto reach without the stratospheric cost of big primes, or even the highest-end zooms from Canon and Nikon. Second, AF speed and accuracy with the 300mm f/4 + TC-14E II is much better – you will get a lot more consistent results.
