  • Long reach with superior performance:
  • When you're at the top of your game, you need gear that can keep up. The AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR makes no compromises when it comes to performance. This popular 600mm prime lens has been optimized for today's high-resolution image sensors and fast shooting Nikon DSLRs, elevating your ability to quickly capture stunning images. A new magnesium alloy lens barrel design and the incorporation of fluorite elements makes it nearly 3 pounds lighter than its predecessor. Pair that with the latest in lens innovation and optical precision for the ideal lens choice for outdoor sports, action and nature photographers who need the reach a 600mm focal length will provide.
  • Tripod-compatible image stabilization: 4.0 stops of vibration reduction:
  • Reduce blur caused by camera movement, even in low light. Nikon's VR image stabilization counteracts camera shake and vibration up to 4.0 stops, a must-have feature when working handheld, on a monopod or even a tripod. A specialized Sports Mode is optimized for camera pans and fast-action sports, and the Tripod Mode eliminates the subtle ground vibrations that are constantly passing through a tripod or monopod.
  • Lens-to-camera precision: Superior AF tracking and exposure control:
  • Track fast moving subjects?even those moving erratically, at random speeds or approaching the camera quickly?with tack-sharp AF precision. During high-speed continuous shooting, the electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism operates in sync with the camera shutter for fast automatic exposure control and consistency between shots, even when using a compatible teleconverter.
  • Ready for the field: Lightweight, durable and reliable:
  • This is a lens built for tough assignments. A new magnesium alloy barrel and fluorite elements reduce the overall weight by nearly 3 pounds versus its predecessor. The protective front meniscus is coated with Nikon's non-stick Fluorine coat, which makes it easier to wipe off water, dirt and smudges. Ball bearings in the tripod collar ring ensure smooth transitions between horizontal and vertical shooting.
  • SPORT Vibration Reduction:
  • For pros shooting fast and erratic moving sports subjects, using the SPORT VR mode will give you a more stable viewfinder image, handheld or when using a monopod, even if you're panning. Track subjects easier when shooting in Continuous mode and as an added benefit with the D4S, the continuous shooting frame rates and release lag time are not affected while using VR. Even use SPORT VR when shooting HD video. The Tripod VR function even eliminates the vibrations that may transfer from the ground to the tripod in both Normal and SPORT VR modes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dream come true Just bought this lens two weeks back and still experimenting with this super prime machine. I was able to shoot some of the stunning images of birds. I was shooting handheld and expecting that this lens can do miracles and improve the image qualities if mount it on tripod or mono pod. I love this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything its meant to be Traded in my 600 G series for this lighter and better balanced lens. It is so noticable from the minute I picked it up with a D5 attached. I can't shoot without a tripod, but travel is that much easier, The optical quality is a step up as well, and focus is faster and quieter. I'm happy with the value I received for the extra $$.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shedding Pounds It goes without saying that Nikon's professional primes are top-tier tools. My guess is that anyone looking to purchase one of the new fluorite models is really asking themselves the question of whether or not the "FL" is worth the additional magnum duffel of cash that must be forked over vs. the previous model(s). The answer is all about weight. If you are a tripod shooter, don't do much air travel with your gear, and seldom pack your prime around then you can save the extra coin. DXO has not reviewed the 600FL or 500FL yet, but it's obvious based on tests of the 400FL that these new designs are about shedding pounds and that optical performance is equivalent. If you are like me, and have been bent into the posture of neanderthal man from lurching around mountainous terrain with a lens roughly equivalent in weight and ergonomics to an adolescent pachyderm...then absolutely you should get the FL version. This 600FL is about 3 pounds lighter than the previous 600/4, 2 pounds lighter than the old 400/2.8, and even weighs 1/5th of a pound less than the outgoing 500/4. It's not just total weight, however, because the new design is much less end heavy and more balanced as a whole. Can you handhold it? Well, I have been handholding the 10-pound 400/2.8 for years so this 8-pound 600 feels dramatically easier to handle in every regard. It's still physically large and requires good technique but since weight has been my #1 sore spot (literally) regarding super telephotos I pre-ordered this lens as soon as I saw the technical specifications. The price hurts but the FL primes are significantly easier to handle, carry, mount on support equipment, handhold, and travel with. If those things are deciding factors for you, it's an investment you won't regret.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An outstanding lens! I felt in love with the lens right at the minute I lifted it out of the box. Comparing with my existing 600mm f4 G, I felt much lighter and better balance although it is only 3 lbs less. I could not shoot hand held with my existing lens but I could with this lens. The tripod is still needed but at least for some moments I can shoot without it. The focus is extremely fast and the picture quality is outstanding. Nikon removed the VR ring which is good (I sometime forgot to switch it on/off). The foot is lower and has rubber grip which helps to carry the lens around. It would be nice if Nikon makes the foot compatible with the Arca-Swiss plate which I think is pretty much standard these days. The photos below were taken with D4 and 600mm f/4E + TC 1.4 III. They were cropped but no adjustment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens! I just got the delivery of the lens on 7/23/15. The felt in love with the lens the first time I lifted it up. It's just 3 lbs lighter my current 600 mm but it felt a lot lighter and much more balance. I was not able to hand hold my current 600 mm but I was able to do so with this lens. Tripod is still needed but for some moments I think I can manage to hand hold this lens without much of a problem. I tried to put it in one of my Lowepro backpack meant for carry on when flying and it fits nicely. I then mounted the lens on my D4 with TC-1.4 III and quickly took some test shots without using the tripod. I will do some more testing but so far I'm very please with the lens physically, image quality and the focus speed. The photos I uploaded were cropped but no adjustment. They were taken hand held at 1/1250s, f/5.6, iso 400.
