NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S

One super-telephoto lens. Two focal lengths.

Get the shot

 


The NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S is a fast, professional, super-telephoto prime lens for sports and wildlife photographers. Next-level autofocus. A built-in 1.4x teleconverter. You’ll get the shot—no matter what.

Home in on the action and nail every detail

With 600 mm of reach to put you in the middle of the action—plus a built-in teleconverter to get you even closer—you’ll reap the rewards of this fast super-telephoto lens on every shoot. Sharpness is outstanding across the frame, even when shooting wide open, and bokeh is beautifully smooth and rounded. Every detail is rendered with stunning clarity, no matter how quick or erratic your subject.

Get even closer at the flick of a switch

The built-in 1.4x teleconverter instantly transforms this 600 mm f/4 prime lens into an 840 mm f/5.6 lens. High-performance optics ensure consistently amazing image quality, and you can engage the teleconverter without adjusting your posture or taking your eye off the main event. For more extreme reach, you can use the NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S with the Z series 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters.

Phenomenal in-lens autofocus

In-lens AF is powered by Nikon’s Silky Swift voice coil motor (SSVCM) and an optical ABS encoder—a high-precision sensor that detects and communicates lens position with absolute accuracy. From high-speed motorsport to unpredictable wildlife, you’ll benefit from super-fast subject acquisition, spot-on tracking, and silent operation.

Powerful VR keeps images super sharp

When you want to keep pace with the action—and the light—Nikon’s in-lens Vibration Reduction lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to 5.0 stops slower. And you get a 5.5-stop advantage when using a Nikon mirrorless camera that supports Synchro VR. You’ll nail super-sharp, blur-free shots in any light, even when shooting handheld.¹

Ready to work in the toughest locations

Dust, dirt, and moisture are kept away from all moving parts and the lens mount by rubber gaskets.² The front element has Nikon’s nonstick Fluorine Coat, which repels oil, moisture, and smudges and easily wipes clean.

Cabin-friendly dimensions

Prefer to keep your gear safely with you—and out of checked baggage—when flying? The NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S is compact and lightweight enough to fit into a kit bag that will meet the carry-on requirements of most airlines.

Perfectly balanced

The lens’ centre of gravity is positioned in the middle of the tripod foot for stable operation, and less strain on your posture when shooting mounted or handheld. When the lens is attached to a tripod or monopod, you’ll pan smoothly and stably.

Versatile control

Nikon’s renowned ergonomics and customizable controls give you exceptional operational versatility. You can activate the Memory Set and Fn buttons as well as the Fn, control, and focus rings without taking your eye off the viewfinder.

Leave lens flare behind

 

Meso Amorphous Coat is Nikon’s best anti-reflection coating—and it gives this super-telephoto lens remarkable control over ghosting and flare. Shots are crisp and clear, whether you’re shooting backlit subjects or scenes with multiple light sources in the frame.
