Nikkor Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S Lens Specifications

bythom nikon 600mm

Thom’s Commentary: Nikon's second teleconverter-included exotic provides exceptional 600mm f/4 and 840mm f/5.6 optical capabilities in a package that's smaller and lighter than its F-mount predecessor. Just as with the 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S, the 600mm f/4 TC VR S is a top-of-the-heap exotic lens that provides best in class performance. Of course, it's also expensive, which is going to stop a number of folk from getting it. Recommended will eventually be reviewed fully
