Nikkor Z 600mm f/6.3 PF VR S Lens Specifications

bythom nikon 600mmpf

Thom’s Commentary: Similar to the 400mm f/4.5's relation to the f/2.8, this 600mm f/6.3 VR S lens is the lower-cost complement to the 600mm f/4. Nikon's second phase fresnel lens offers a very packable 600mm lens that's very handholdable. Yes, the maximum aperture is only f/6.3, but this lens is the second-best way to achieve 600mm in the Z System, and far less expensive than the best way. Recommended review coming
