TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2024

BEST SUPERTELEPHOTO PRIME LENS

NIKKOR Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S

A dream lens for wildlife photographers, the Z 600 incorporates a built-in 1.4X teleconverter that switches the lens to an 840mm f/5.6 while optically matching the lens and maintaining its weather sealing. Working outdoors often means challenging light and weather conditions, so a newly developed “Meso Amorphous Coat” offers the greatest anti-reflective performance from a Nikon lens while ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats do their part to reduce ghosting, reflections and glare. AF is greatly enhanced with a “Silky Swift Voice Coil Motor” that uses magnets rather than gears to move focusing groups, benefiting both still and video recording. Vibration reduction with a lens like this is paramount, and here it’s up to 5.5 stops with compatible camera bodies. Atop a tripod, the build and design allow for a balance that makes panning smoother and more responsive.
