Expand your capabilities.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
