Vibration Reduction.


Super-telephoto focal length.


Lightweight at its class.


Superb performance.

Unmatched Reach, Half the Weight.

Approximately 57% lighter than the NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S.

Crafted for Handheld Shooting.

Bid farewell to photoshoot fatigue with the ultra-lightweight NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S. Experience unparalleled mobility and freedom while capturing distant subjects like birds and planes. Weighing only 1390g, it is the lightest in its class with a compact design of 278mm. The lens's center of gravity is strategically positioned closer to the body, providing enhanced control during panning. With a focal length 100mm longer than the AF-S NIKKOR 500mm F/5.6E PF ED VR and 115g lighter than the AF-S NIKKOR 500mm F/5.6E PF ED VR with FTZ, it delivers superior balance and control even when focusing on fast-moving subjects.

The Phase Fresnel Advantage.

Optimized for handheld use, the lightweight and compact design is made possible thanks to a Phase Fresnel lens element. It not only reduces the size and weight of lens elements but also effectively compensates for chromatic aberrations, ensuring high optical performance.

Revel in Stunning Details.

Witness the beauty and detail of feathers with high-resolution images. The NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S, with its PF lens element, two ED glasses, and one SR lens element, suppresses axial chromatic aberration. Nano Crystal Coat and optimized PF lens element positioning reduce ghosting, ensuring consistently sharp, high-resolution images, even at a 1200-mm range with a teleconverter.

Capture without Shake.

With up to 5.5-stops2 VR, the NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S ensures sharp images by countering camera shake. Choose NORMAL mode for optimal conditions, providing VR performance equivalent to a 5.5-stops2 increase in shutter speed. SPORT mode is perfect for capturing fast-moving subjects, offering a stable viewfinder image. The lightweight body complements SPORT mode for panning shots and tracking moving objects, even achieving a powerful Synchro VR at up to 6.0-stops3.

Harmony with Nature.

Designed for the sound of silence, the Stepping Motor (STM) ensures excellent quietness and response speed. Ideal for shooting wildlife or fast-moving subjects, the reduced operational sounds during focusing and movie recording enhance your shooting experience.

"The excellent AF speed really helped me shoot the fast, unpredictable subjects I work with. The powerful stabilisation is useful, too, letting me shoot hand-held even at 1/200th. It’s compact and surprisingly light for a 600mm lens, so it was easy to carry wherever I went, and the long focal length helps you remain discreet and get more authentic, striking photos."

Effortless Operation.

Every aspect of the NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S is designed for ease of use. With excellent dust & drip resistance, strategically positioned operational controls, and a fluorine coat for anti-fouling, this lens ensures superior usability. Sealing on moveable parts and a rubber gasket on the lens mount provide superior dust & drip resistance. The Fluorine coat repels dust or dirt, making it easy to clean, allowing you to stay focused on your subject, even in changing weather conditions.

L-Fn Buttons for Your Convenience.

Operational controls are positioned consistently with other super-telephoto prime lenses, offering a stable and natural grip with non-slip rubber. Four L-Fn2 buttons and one L-Fn button enhance operability and customization without relying on visual confirmation. The Memory recall function5 saves frequently used focus positions for quick recall.

Designed for Videos.

With enhanced video features, the NIKKOR Z 600mm f/6.3 VR S takes your video mode to new heights.

Quiet Operation

Minimized lens drive and operational sounds prevent them from being recorded, even in quiet situations. A "click-less" control ring eliminates unnecessary operational sounds during video recording.

Natural Videos Achieved

Effective focus-breathing compensation6 reduces shifts in the angle of view when adjusting focus, ensuring natural and smooth videos.

Stable Exposure with Smooth Aperture Changes

Delivering natural brightness changes, the lens allows users to create smooth videos with stable aperture control.

Fluorine Coat
Photographers need gear that can withstand the elements. Nikon’s fluorine coat effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt, ensuring easy removal even when they adhere to the lens surface. Nikon’s fluorine coat endures a high frequency of lens surface wiping and its anti-reflective effect also contributes to the capture of clear images.

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

Stepping Motor
NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video..

PF Lens
The PF (Phase Fresnel) lens, developed by Nikon, effectively compensates chromatic aberration utilizing the photo diffraction phenomenon*. It provides superior chromatic aberration compensation performance when combined with a normal glass lens. Compared to many general camera lenses that employ an optical system using the photorefractive phenomenon, a remarkably compact and lightweight body can be attained with less number of lens elements

Short-Wavelength Refractive Len
SR is a high- and specialised-dispersion glass lens that refracts light with wavelengths shorter than that of blue. By controlling short-wavelength light, the lens is able to achieve highly precise chromatic aberration compensation so that the colours in your images are more accurately reproduced. It also allows for more flexible optical designs, which allows for compact, lighter lenses to be designed.

Nano Crystal Coat
An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.
