Performance to the extreme.
Introducing the Nikon NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S, a lens that is sure to be prized by professionals in a variety of fields. This powerful 600mm prime is designed for high-performance mirrorless cameras, and it delivers outstanding image quality and reach. With its built-in 1.4x teleconverter, this lens is also incredibly versatile, allowing you to switch between 600mm and 840mm with the flip of a switch. Whether you're shooting motor sports, action, wildlife, or anything else that requires a long focal length, the Nikon NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S is up to the task.
600mm. 840mm. Your call.
With the built-in teleconverter, you can instantly engage and get 40% closer to your subject, 840mm f/5.6, without taking your eyes off your subject, breaking posture, or even releasing the camera grip. This makes it easy to capture those perfect moments that you don't want to miss.
Get even more reach.
This lens is also ideal for video creators, thanks to the 2.3x Crop Mode which allows you to record 4K video from faraway subjects with no loss of image quality. With a fast f/4 maximum aperture, the NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S is perfect for low-light shooting and capturing fast-moving action.
It features six specialized lens elements that work together to prevent light dispersion and produce the sharpest, clearest images imaginable. Two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) and one Super ED glass elements, two lightweight Fluorite (FL) elements and a Short-wavelength Refractive (SR) element work together in perfect harmony to produce images that are absolutely breathtaking.
Striking subject isolation.
When combined with the compression of 600mm, subjects take on a three-dimensional quality that adds drama and depth to your images. This lens is ideal for wildlife photography, sports photography, and any other situations where you need to capture fast-moving action. The built-in teleconverter allows you to extend the focal length to 900mm, making it even more versatile. With VR (vibration reduction) technology, you can shoot handheld at slow shutter speeds without worrying about camera shake.
Cut through glare.
With Nikon's Meso Amorphous Coat, you'll get the highest level of anti-reflection performance for virtually no ghosting or flare. And when shooting under the lights at a sporting event, Nano Crystal Coat (N) prevents internal reflections and cross-lighting for even better results.
Autofocus. Swift. Silent. Spot-on.
Featuring a cutting-edge AF drive system with ultra-fast acceleration and smooth, quiet operation, this lens is sure to impress. And with an absolute encoder that monitors movements with 20x more precision and speed than conventional solutions, you can be confident in the quality of your photos.
Powerful optical stabilization gives you the edge.
Even the slightest camera shake can soften details, but with this lens's in-lens optical VR image stabilization, you can counteracts vibrations with an effect equivalent to shooting at a shutter speed up to 5.0 stops faster. When used on a camera with Synchro VR, the in-lens and in-camera VR systems work together and achieve an effect up to 5.5 stops2. The SPORT Mode stabilizes the viewfinder image, making it easier to acquire and track fast-moving subjects. With its 600mm focal length and f/4 maximum aperture, this lens is capable of capturing stunning images in a variety of lighting conditions.
Outstanding for video.
With its in-lens Optical VR, you'll get a stable, sharp view while recording, making it easy to get great results. The smooth focus ring makes it easy to make gradual focus changes, while the click-less control ring lets you make iris adjustments that create a natural shift in brightness without flickering. And the powerful focus-breathing compensation function maintains a consistent angle-of-view as focus position moves, an effect that virtually eliminates focus breathing.
This premium lens is part of Nikon's S-Line, meaning it features advanced optics, superb resolution, stunning bokeh, and rugged weather sealing. Plus, its precision design makes it a joy to use. Whether you're shooting nature scenes, sports events, or anything else, the NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S will help you capture amazing images.
550g lighter than the Nikon F-mount 600mm f/4 prime lens, even with the built-in teleconverter.
Easy to hold.
The center of gravity is at the tripod ring for smoother panning on monopods and tripods and more stable handheld shooting.
Nikon’s NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S is a telephoto lens that has been carefully designed to meet airline carry-on size requirements. This means that you can keep it safely with you—and out of checked baggage—when flying.
Weather-sealed and rugged.
This lens features a rubber gasket that helps keep dust, dirt and moisture out of all moving parts, including the mount. The magnesium alloy construction of the lens barrel makes it strong yet lightweight, and Nikon's non-stick Fluorine coat on the front element repels oil, moisture and smudges.
Comfortably access the L-Fn1, L-Fn2 and Memory Set buttons, the Fn ring, control ring and focus ring and the teleconverter switch without breaking shooting posture or taking your eye off the viewfinder. The large focus ring provides a smooth, precise focusing action. With its silent wave motor (SWM) drive unit, this lens achieves fast, accurate AF operation. The SWM also rotates the complete optical assembly at high speed for fast autofocusing.
Recall stored focus positions.
Featuring a Memory Set button, you can save a focus position for instant recall when your subject approaches the decisive moment. Rotating the Fn ring allows you to quickly and easily snap back to that saved position, ensuring you always get the perfect shot.
Brilliant. By design.
Smoothly rotate from vertical to horizontal shooting.
