Nikon Nikkor Z 600mm Super Telephoto Lens Get You Close to the Action

Nikon Canada Inc. has introduced its newest premium super telephoto lens, the Nikkor Z 600mm F/6.3 VR S, the latest S-Line prime lens in the brand’s Phase Fresnel (PF) lense line-up that focuses on big reach in a small and lightweight package.

Ideal for photographing wildlife, aviation, and motorsports, it offers fast and precise focus and is easy to handle. The lens has a total length of 11 inches and weighs approximately 3lbs. It’s also designed such that the centre of gravity is positioned closer to the body side, offering optimal balance. This also makes the Nikkor Z 600mm an ideal lens for panning in situations that require lens control and stability, such as automotive racing or fast-moving subjects like wild birds in flight.

The use of the PF lens element contributes to a significantly smaller overall size and weight, says Nikon, reducing the need for a tripod. With advanced AF and VR performance as well as S-Line superior rendering quality, the Nikkor Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S gives you confidence to get sharp images of fast-moving subjects from a distance. 

Chromatic aberration is significantly reduced with the adoption of PF and ED glass elements. In addition, the adoption of an SR lens element controls short-wavelength light, the effects of which are difficult to correct, achieving highly precise chromatic aberration compensation.

Nikon’s original Nano Crystal Coat has been adopted to effectively reduce ghost and flare.

By using the Z Teleconverter TC-1.4× or Z Teleconverter TC-2.0×, the telephoto range can be expanded to 840mm or 1200mm respectively, while taking advantage of the lens’s AF and VR performance to realize superior sharpness and clarity.

Equipped with Normal VR mode, which demonstrates superior 5.5-stop stabilization; as well as Sport VR mode, which stabilizes the viewfinder display with continuous shooting, making it easier to track rapidly moving subjects.

When paired with a compatible body, Synchro VR can be activated to achieve up to 6.0-stop stabilization by combining in-camera VR and lens VR. The adoption of a stepping motor (STM) ensures fast and quiet autofocusing. There’s also superior dust- and drip-resistant performance, and excellent anti-fouling performance is achieved through the adoption of fluorine coat.

The lens is equipped with four lens Fn2 buttons and one lens Fn button that can be customized and assigned to a wide variety of functions. Equipped with a memory recall function that instantly recalls a focus position stored in advance by pressing the button to which the function has been assigned. A design that takes video recording into consideration with quiet operation and stable exposure, as well as functions including focus-breathing suppression that effectively reduces shifting of the angle of view with focusing.

The new Nikon Nikkor Z 600mm F/6.3 VR S will be available in late October for an MSRP of $6,499.95.
