Super-Telephoto, Super Versatile

Combining reach, speed, and versatility, the NIKKOR Z 600mm f4 TC VR S, from Nikon is a super-telephoto prime built for the rigours of sports and wildlife photography. Characterized by its long focal length and bright f4 design, along with speedy AF and robust VR, this lens further distinguishes itself with a built-in 1.4x teleconverter that permits near-instant switching to an effective 840mm f5.6 for even greater reach when needed.

Built-In 1.4x Teleconverter

Built-in 1.4x teleconverter allows you to instantly extend your reach to 840mm simply by flipping the right-hand switch.

Since the teleconverter is integrated within the lens housing, it is optically matched to the lens for improved imaging performance and also fully maintains the lens's weather sealing.

The integrated design also reduces the likelihood of attracting dust or dirt to optical or sensor services and saves time when changing between focal lengths.
When the teleconverter is in use, this 600mm f4 becomes an effective 840mm f5.6 lens

S-Line Optics

Fast f4 maximum aperture excels in available lighting conditions and also benefits from controlling the depth of field to separate and isolate subjects from a busy background.

Helping to virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations, colour fringing, and comatic aberrations, this lens features two ED (extra-low dispersion) and one Super ED glass element, two lightweight fluorite elements, and an SR (short-wavelength refractive) element.

The SR element features a specialized high-dispersion design that refracts wavelengths shorter than blue; this helps achieve truly accurate colour rendering and also aids in making the lens design more compact.

Refined Anti-Glare Coatings

The newly developed Meso Amorphous Coat offers the greatest anti-reflective performance from a NIKKOR lens, outperforms the Nano Crystal Coat in regard to diagonal incident light and matches the performance of the ARNEO Coat for vertical incident light.

ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats are still applied for even more well-rounded anti-glare protection from all angles and help suppress ghosting, reflections, and flare for higher contrast and more accurate colour response when working in strong lighting and backlit conditions.

Silky Swift VCM Autofocus

Silky Swift Voice Coil Motor (VCM) uses magnets instead of gears to move the focusing groups at higher initial speeds and with greater accuracy and smoothness. A guide bar is also employed, which helps reduce focusing vibrations for greater continuous focusing speeds. (WARNING: Do not use this product if you have a pacemaker or other medical device. The magnet or magnets in this product could cause medical devices to malfunction.)

Using a high-precision sensor from the robotics industry, this lens features an optical ABS (absolute) encoder to detect and communicate lens position information with extreme accuracy to optimise fast and accurate AF performance.

Benefitting video use, the Silky Swift VCM is also especially quiet and the multi-focusing system also greatly reduces focus breathing for greater compositional accuracy when racking focus.

Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Vibration Reduction

Vibration Reduction image stabilization reduces the appearance of camera shake by approximately 5 stops to better enable handheld shooting in low-light situations.
Synchro VR is also supported when paired with compatible cameras featuring sensor-shift VR, which combines in-body VR with optical VR for improved performance and 5.5 stops of shake control.

Professional Durability and Intuitive Handling

Updated design weighs 7.2 lb, making it 14% lighter than the F-mount 600mm f4—and this Z-mount version features a built-in teleconverter.

The physical design focuses the centre of gravity around the tripod mount for smoother, more responsive panning, especially when working atop a tripod or monopod. The tripod mount also rotates for easier switching between vertical and horizontal shooting orientations.

Advanced weather sealing incorporates rubber gaskets to prevent dust and moisture ingress, the lens body is made from lightweight and durable magnesium alloy, and the front and rear elements have a fluorine coating that easily repels dirt, moisture, and oils and is easier to clean.

Compatible with optional Z-Teleconverter TC-1.4x and TC-2x to further extend the reach of this lens.

The intuitive "no-look" control layout puts all of the frequently-used buttons and dials in easy-to-reach locations to prevent the need to move your eye from the viewfinder.
Store a focusing position using the Memory Set button so you can instantly return to this position by rotating the Fn ring—perfect for capturing fleeting movements.

Customizable L-Fn buttons can be set to configure subject tracking, AF lock, image playback, or other modes. The L-Fn2 button is also accessible from four different locations on the barrel for easy reach.

Programmable Control Ring can also be used to control aperture, ISO, or exposure compensation.

Kensington lock support for securing the lens in place during remote shooting sessions.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
