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...
It goes without saying that Nikon's professional primes are top-tier tools. My guess is that anyone looking to purchase one of the new fluorite models is really asking themselves the question of whether or not the "FL" is worth the additional magnum duffel of cash that must be forked over...
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.
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.
The lens performs very well with good contrast and edge to edge image sharpness. The foot provided is much too short to function properly with a WH-200 mount.I added a P-50 plate to correct the defect.
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.
Traded in my 600 G series for this lighter and better balanced lens. It is so noticable from the minute I picked it up with a D5 attached. I can't shoot without a tripod, but travel is that much easier, The optical quality is a step up as well, and focus is faster and quieter.
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...
If you shoot wildlife & Nikon - this should be in your bag, end of story.
