The new AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4G ED VR Lens offers unprecedented image quality, responsiveness and versatility along with new features such as Nikon's VR II Vibration Reduction technology and Nikon's exclusive Nano Crystal Coat. This new lens is designed for use with Nikon's FX and DX format digital SLR cameras.

This new super-telephoto lens is equipped with Nikon's VR II Vibration Reduction system that minimizes image blur caused by camera shake and offers up to four stops of compensation for clean, crisp images. When using Nikon's VR function, photographers can view a stabilized image through the viewfinder and therefore are able to compose their pictures naturally and with greater accuracy. A Tripod mode in the camera reduces vibration that may occur at shutter release when shooting with a super-telephoto lens attached to a tripod.

The new optical design for this lens features three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements that minimize chromatic aberration, producing consistently high-quality images. Nikon's exclusive Nano Crystal Coat - an extra-low refractive index coating - virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths, and is particularly effective in reducing ghosting and flare. A meniscus protective glass element also minimizes the ghosting that occurs when light reflected from a digital camera's image sensor is in turn reflected off an ordinary flat protective glass element.

The AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4G ED VR features ergonomically arranged controls that enable easy access and comfortable operation. The Focus Preset function instantly recalls a focal point preset with a simple push of a button while the Focus Limiter switch restricts AF-servo movement to a controlled shooting distance range. The lenses also feature an AF-L switch that makes it possible to lock focus from the lens; and AF-ON engages auto focus from the lens.

By employing magnesium die-cast in construction of the lens barrel, Nikon has achieved considerable weight reduction advantages without sacrificing rugged field-proven construction that's resistant to both dust and moisture.

  • High-powered, Super Telephoto lens optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both the Nikon FX (23.9 x 36mm) and DX-format image sensors
  • Vibration Reduction (VR II) minimizes the effects of camera shake allowing photographers to shoot at as many as four shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper images
  • New Tripod Detection mode reduces vibration that may occur due to shutter release when mounted on a tripod
  • Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra high-speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and powerful, super-quiet operation
  • Exclusive Nano Crystal Coat and a meniscus protective glass element combine to further reduce ghosting and flare for even greater image clarity
  • Three ED (Extra-low dispersion) elements control chromatic aberrations while enhancing color, sharpness and contrast, even at the widest aperture settings
  • Rugged, reliable, lightweight construction features a magnesium die-cast barrel and professional-grade dust and moisture resistance
  • New A/M focus mode provides fast, secure switching between Auto and Manual focus operation
