The Nikon 600mm f/4G AF-S VR

The lightweight construction of the Nikon 600mm incorporates a magnesium die-cast barrel, and professional-grade dust and moisture sealing allows it to be used in more rugged situations. This lens features the improved Vibration Reduction (VR II) system that minimizes image blur caused by camera shake and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed of about four stops faster. In addition, this lens also features the Tripod Detection mode, which reduces vibration that may occur due to shutter release when mounted on a tripod.

The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) feature provides swift autofocus with superior accuracy and ultra-quiet operation. This is a G-type lens with aperture changes done via the camera’s command dial. Improved M/A mode provides instant and fast switching from autofocus to manual focus with nearly no time lag. Three ED (Extra Low Dispersion) glass elements restrict chromatic aberrations to a minimum, and Nano Crystal Coating and a meniscus protective glass element further reduce ghosting and flare for even greater image clarity. The 600mm also features a 9-bladed aperture diaphragm, creating smooth out-of-focus highlights.

Roger's Take

It’s not often that I’m left speechless, but this one is just obvious--if you’ve got good support (read: sturdy tripod and gimbal head), this lens is phenomenal. Perfect. Still sharp with a 1.4x teleconverter and amazingly sharp without one. There’s really nothing else to be said.

One effective technique to get some room when you’re at a crowded airshow: set the 600mm vertically with the hood end on the ground, get a serious look on your face, and announce loudly “you folks should step back from the blast area before we launch this."

Are we out of stock?

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
