I finally took the dive and bought this magnificent piece of engineering art after years of lusting. Even more so when the new E version came out. The Nikkor 600mm f/4E FL ED VR is the best lens I've ever used and I have a lot of Nikkor Gold-Ring N lenses, including the recently introduced 400mm...
Recently purchase the new Nikkor 600mm f/4E, FL, ED, VR Prime Lens and I love it. The clarity of the pictures coupled with a very fast focus make it a wonderful nature lens. Even with the reduced weight it is still a large and heavy lens, but I have been able to use it free hand on many outings.
Clarity, Auto Focus, Quality of build
Heavy, I found it susceptible to moisture. I had the front glass fog up on the inside the lens slightly after indirect exposure to damp conditions for about 20 minutes. It cleared up withing 20 minutes at home. I have not had this issue with other lens.
Just bought this lens two weeks back and still experimenting with this super prime machine. I was able to shoot some of the stunning images of birds. I was shooting handheld and expecting that this lens can do miracles and improve the image qualities if mount it on tripod or mono pod.
If you shoot with a DX body and need a good zoom, this lens is even better. The cropped sensor adds an astounding zoom to the original 600mm, making wild life photography easy while staying hundreds of feet away from the subject where you are less likely to spook it.
This is the sharpest camera lens I have ever owned. The tiny feather details it captures on birds is astounding. I am using it coupled with small pixel bodies with no anti-aliasing filter (D500 or D850) and I am repeatedly thrilled to bird with it.
Initial testing indicates that lens is quite sharp. Shooting in the real world will hopefully validate that assessment.
The other reviews have already described it well. This is a superb optic.
f you are even slightly thinking about purchasing this lens and can afford it, well that means you want it so just pull the trigger, but also know it will tick off the wife Hehe :-) I would suggest procuring this puppy because it truly is an amazing piece of glass that you will never ever regret...
I owned the AF-S 500mm G VR and this new 600mm f/4E weighs the same but is definitely bigger to transport and carry around. I find the image quality to be better in every regard. Focus is extremely snappy and it takes the TC-1.4E very well.
This is my fourth Nikkor Super telephoto Lens and is the best Nikon has released to date in the 600mm focal length to date. The new FL version brings a few benefits, like a redesigned lens that is better balanced and easier to handhold.
