The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4G ED VR is a professional quality super telephoto lens. It is almost identical to the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4G ED VR II in features and function, the only exception being the longer 600mm focal length allowing greater imaging of more distant subjects. This lens is engineered to create edge-to-edge sharpness when used with Nikon FX and DX-format image sensors. Vibration Reduction (VR) Image Stabilization enables handheld shooting, accounting for up to 4 stops of motion. When a tripod is being used, tripod detection reduces vibration due to shutter release. Nano Crystal Coat and a meniscus protective glass work with three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements to reduce ghosting and internal flare for improved image clarity. The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) drives ultra-high-speed autofocusing with quiet operation, and a full-time manual focus is also available.
