Pack lighter, react faster and cover more distance with the shortest, lightest 600mm prime lens Nikon has ever created. Designed around a size-reducing Phase Fresnel (PF) lens element, the NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S enables bird, wildlife, motorsports and aircraft photographers to perform in the field with tremendous mobility and spontaneity.
So much power in your hands.
Leave the tripod and monopod at home and live in the moment, quickly acquiring faraway subjects and tracking them with controlled precision.
Just 11 inches long and 3 pounds.
The NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S fits comfortably in most backpacks and carry-on luggage, and it's light enough to be shot all day with less fatigue.
Outstanding balance & handling.
The center of gravity is shifted toward the camera, giving you more speed and control when panning and making the lens feel even lighter.
600mm draws you in.
An essential focal length for motorsport action, birds and wildlife, 600mm closes vast distances and brings the heart of the story to your viewfinder.
Stunning clarity down to the smallest detail.
Specialized ED and SR lens elements work together to prevent light dispersion and produce the sharpest images imaginable. Fine details and intricate patterns, like those found in the feathers of birds, are rendered with lifelike accuracy.
Cut through backlighting and glare.
Nikon's anti-reflection coating, Nano Crystal Coat (N), greatly reduces ghosting and flare, even against bright backgrounds with direct sunlight.
Fast, reliable autofocus.
The NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S lens is powered by the Nikon Stepping Motor (STM), an incredibly accurate, near-silent AF drive system designed to keep up with fast, erratic subjects like birds and motorsports, where you have only an instant to nail the shot.
Up to 6.0 stops of VR.
Built-in optical VR achieves an effect of shooting up to 6.0 stops faster on a camera that supports Synchro VR and 5.5 stops faster on all other Z series cameras.
Versatile video performance.
The NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S lens operates with virtually no mechanical noise, so you can confidently use Continuous AF to track subjects. Focus breathing is heavily suppressed, maintaining your framing as your focus position changes. And the precision electromagnetic diaphragm lets you make smooth, stepless aperture adjustments while recording.
Advanced weather sealing.
Rubber gaskets keep dust, dirt and moisture out of moving parts, including the lens mount.
Recall stored focus positions.
Save a focus position with the Memory Set button. As your subject approaches the decisive moment, instantly snap back to that saved position using the Fn or Fn2 buttons.
Nonstick protective coating.
The front element has Nikon’s nonstick Fluorine Coat, which repels oil, moisture and smudges and easily wipes clean.
The S-Line advantage.
At the top of the NIKKOR Z lineup are special lenses developed in pursuit of a higher level of optical performance—lenses that push the boundaries of traditional design, meet a higher standard of quality and enable new forms of image creation.
