Versatility At Its Finest
The intelligent, compact design of the NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S enables the housing of two focal lengths: with a simple flick of a switch, users can shift between focal lengths of 600mm and 840mm with the built-in 1.4x teleconverter, or experience a further extension of up to 1176mm using the
combination of the built-in teleconverter and Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x. Users will find that focusing at long distances or the infinity point is still sharp, crucial when capturing the action from a far distance and struggling with heat haze coming from racing or running tracks.
Stay mobile and versatile with the lens weighing only approximately 3,260g – 550g lighter than its F mount equivalent – and measuring a notable 437mm in length to fit into one’s camera backpack in perfect accommodation for travels. Easy to use handheld, this lens enables users to shoot with confidence
even if they have to out on the field all day. The lens’ centre of gravity, placed in the middle of the tripod collar, is strategically positioned to be closer to the photographer for excellent body weight distribution and operability. This enables one to attain a shooting experience with the utmost stability when shooting handheld and to achieve an ease of panning when using on a monopod.
Giving users the stability and confidence to capture sharp images in a variety of situations be it in aviation photography or capturing alpine skiing in action, the lens is equipped with Vibration Reduction (VR) of up to a 5.0 stop. With this function, the NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S effectively counters
camera shake at its super-telephoto focal distance or during low light conditions where slower shutter speeds are required. Image blurring reduction is amplified further with the 5.5-stop2 Synchro VR, which is activated when used in conjunction with the Z 9. Users who wish to use the lens for tracking fast and erratic moving subjects while being on wildlife expeditions or motocross racing finals, can further utilise the SPORT mode that equips one with the ability to track subjects easily when doing continuous burst high-speed shooting.
Beyond simply capturing images in excellent resolution, the autofocus (AF) drive motor utilises an optical ABS (absolute) encoder – that functions as a super-accurate ruler and precisely detects and measure the amounts of positioning change of the focus lens groups at approximately 20 times precision.
Coupled with the Silky Swift Voice Coil Motor (SSVCM)3 to drive speed and accuracy while simultaneously operating at near-silence, the lens responses quickly in decisive moments with faster reaction times.
Video recordings also benefit from the Silky Swift VCM’s AF drive technology to ensure a quiet operation during moments where silence is imperative. Enjoy effective focus-breathing compensation, and stable exposure from a smooth aperture control with a lens that is designed with consideration for video shoots as well.
