An S-Line 600mm super-tele lens in a lightweight, easy-to-handle barrel – what’s not to love? At only 278mm long and weighing in at just 1470g, the new super-tele from Nikon gives you all-day shooting capability with incredible, super-sharp results
No tripod? No problem!
The NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S has been designed with handheld shooting in mind. Coming in at only 1390g (excluding the tripod collar, 1470g with) and only 278mm long, the lens is small and light enough to fit in your regular bag and, thanks to 5.5 stops of VR, pictures will be rock-steady and super sharp. The lens is also balanced so that the centre of gravity is closer to the body, meaning users are less aware of the (already light) weight.
Phase Fresnel meets S-Line
The light, short construction of a super-tele with a long focal length is made possible by the inclusion of a Phase Fresnel (PF) element. The inclusion of three ED glass and one SR lens elements also suppresses axial chromatic aberration. A Nano Crystal coating helps clarity and sharpness of images and, as a prime lens, it is less prone to ghosting.
Go even further with a TC
Using the Z Teleconverter TC-2.0x or Z Teleconverter TC-1.4x will add extra reach while still allowing you to maximise the use of the AF and VR functions. Plus, you won’t have to sacrifice superior sharpness and detail with a teleconverter. With a TC-2.0x attached, you will have a 1200mm equivalent lens that’s less than 300mm in length.

Come rain or shine
The NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S is built for the outdoors. With superior dust and drip resistance and the legendary S-Line build quality, this is a lens made for the toughest assignments. Moveable parts of the lens barrel are all sealed and there’s a rubber gasket on the lens mount itself, while a fluorine coating is applied to the front of the lens for superior anti-fouling. Whatever the weather, the NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S will be ready to shoot.
Ergonomics at your fingertips
The NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S features Nikon’s famous dedication to ergonomics and ‘feel’. The assignable function buttons are right where you want them for ease of use. You’ll never be distracted by trying to change a setting while getting a shot. With the latest firmware, you can also use memory recall, where frequently used focus positions can be saved to the lens and quickly recalled.*
Perfect for video
The compact size and light weight of the NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S make it perfect for video of sports action, birds in flight, animals on the move or planes flying through the sky. Pan handheld with ease with the on-board VR, while smooth aperture changes, focus breathing compensation and quiet operation all make for a superb video lens.
