Elicar V-HQ 300-600mm f/4.1-5.7 lens to become available soon


Featured Products

Elicar has announced that its V-HQ 300-600mm f/4.1-5.7 lens will become available over the following weeks for professional outdoor photographers.

Wildlife photography can tend to become a little expensive, but not due to the cameras involved. A lot of professional photographers choose to shoot with APS-C cameras, thanks to their crop factor which provides a bigger focal length, considering the 35mm equivalent. However, they will need super telephoto lenses, which allow them to stay a little farther from the subjects and not disturb the animals’ daily lives.

Elicar has a history of releasing “eccentric” lenses. The Japanese company has developed a lot of optics in this category, including the V-HQ 90mm 1.25X super macro lens, and it is about to take its story to the next level.

The optic is made out of 19 elements divided into 16 groups and the aperture consists of 10 blades. Stability should not be a problem, as the V-HQ lens comes packed with a built-in tripod mount.
