The NIKKOR Z 180-600mm f/5.6-6.3 VR takes you far beyond the reach of standard and telephoto zoom lenses, making the most distant shots suddenly possible.

Nikon

Powerful 180mm-600mm range.

At its widest setting, the NIKKOR Z 180-600mm f/5.6-6.3 VR is great for locating your subject. With a mere quarter turn of the zoom ring, you can reach all the way to 600mm for tight framing with beautiful background compression.

Comfortable handheld shooting.

The NIKKOR Z 180-600mm f/5.6-6.3 VR is among the lightest super-telephoto zoom lenses in its class*, and since it doesn’t expand/retract, it handles the same at every zoom position.

*According to Nikon research of comparable full-frame mirrorless lenses as of June, 2023.

Nikon

Short-throw internal zoom.

An all-internal design eliminates extending/retracting, improving handling, with only a 70° turn needed to go from 180mm to 600mm. The design also prevents dust or moisture from entering those moving parts.

Versatile close focusing.

With a minimum focus distance of just 4.27 ft at the 180mm zoom position and a large 0.25x reproduction ratio, you can turn an unexpected close encounter into a once-in-a-lifetime photo or video.

Nikon

Up to 5.5 stops of VR.

Built-in optical Vibration Reduction (VR) provides a stabilization effect equivalent to a shutter speed of 5.5 stops* faster, reducing camera blur when panning to track fast-moving subjects.

*Based on CIPA Standard; in [Normal] mode at the telephoto end when attached to a full-frame/FX-format camera.

Nikon

Sharp in low light.

Built-in optical VR image stabilization also allows you to shoot at slower shutter speeds to gather more light at dusk, dawn or in a dense forest.

Nikon Z FX NIKKOR

Quiet, accurate autofocus.

Reliably track your subjects without mechanical lens noise, crucial for skittish wildlife and video recording.

Nikon Z FX NIKKOR

Pairs great with Z teleconverters.

Increase your reach by 2x (up to 1200mm) or 1.4x (up to 840mm) with Nikon’s Z series teleconverters (sold separately).

Nikon Z FX NIKKOR

Picks up where the 70-180mm leaves off.

Use both lenses together to cover the entire focal length range from 70-600mm with consistent performance and operation.

Technology

Visions Electronics Logo

IF Lens

A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

Visions Electronics Logo

Fluorine Coat

Photographers need gear that can withstand the elements. Nikon’s fluorine coat effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt, ensuring easy removal even when they adhere to the lens surface. Nikon’s fluorine coat endures a high frequency of lens surface wiping and its anti-reflective effect also contributes to the capture of clear images.

Visions Electronics Logo

Stepping Motor

NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.

Visions Electronics Logo

Aspherical Lens

A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the centre of the lens.

Visions Electronics Logo

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

Visions Electronics Logo

A/M

A/M stands for Auto-Priority Manual Mode. This mode also enables an easy transition from autofocus to manual during AF operation. However, mode switch sensitivity has been altered to reduce the possibility of sudden unintentional switching to manual focus while shooting.

Visions Electronics Logo

Vibration Reduction

A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.

Visions Electronics Logo

Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting.
