Nikon is pleased to introduce a uniquely portable super-telephoto full-frame prime lens, the NIKKOR Z 800m f/6.3 VR S. Birds, wildlife, aircraft, motorsports, and winter
sports: this tough yet remarkably lightweight S-line lens brings the dynamism of distant subjects close in thrilling clarity. Users can follow even erratically moving subjects with a fluidity previously unheard of at 800 mm—and open up their creative possibilities with steady handheld shooting. From hunting eagles to banking planes, the phenomenal resolving power of this S-line lens brings out even the tiniest details of difficult-to-capture subjects.
Image quality is pin-sharp, whether shooting stills or video, and AF performance is exceptionally fast, smooth, and reliable. In-lens optical VR keeps shots steady, and Synchro VR allows up to 5.5 stops of compensation when this lens is paired with the Z 9. In addition, this super-telephoto lens supports the use of Z teleconverters, which can extend the reach to 1120 mm or 1600 mm.
Professional super-telephoto lens: 800 mm focal length. Portable, lightweight build and balanced handling.
Pin-sharp: a specially shaped and positioned Phase Fresnel (PF) lens element and Nano Crystal Coat significantly reduce ghosting and flare. ED and SR glass control chromatic aberration from the centre to the edge of the image.
Fast, quiet focusing: AF is fast, precise, whisper-quiet—tracking is smooth whether shooting jostling race cars or distant wildlife.
Powerful Vibration Reduction: in-lens optical VR keeps shots steady. Synchro VR allows up to 5.5 stops of compensation when this lens is paired with the Z 9.
Customisable control: assign functions to the conveniently positioned L-Fn buttons and the silent control ring.
Use the memory-set button to save focus distances.
Advanced weather sealing: Sealing around all moving parts keeps dust and moisture at bay, and a rubber gasket on the lens mount protects both lens and camera.
Teleconverter compatible: extend the reach to 1120 mm with a Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x, or 1600 mm with a Z TELECONVERTER TC-2.0x.
Integrated filter slot makes it easy to drop in filters for even more control over tricky lighting situations.
Easy lens hood: the supplied HB-104 lens hood boasts a sliding release tab, allowing the hood to be removed with one hand.
