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.
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 expectingthat this lens can do miracles and improve the image qualities if mount it on tripod or mono pod.I love this lens.
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 shoot sports on a monopod. The 600 FL makes it easier to track moving subjects since there is less weight at the end of the lens compared to the older glass version. It feels like it is easier to start and stop motion of the FL lens.
Possibly the sharpest lens ever made. The image stabilization is off the charts. I used it extensively photographing wildlife in Alaska. The weight reduction compared to the older versions is welcome. One of the best lines money can buy.

After many years of wildlife photography, using the latest 600mm was a delight. The drop in weight over the predecessor is terrific and the results are a better as well. Coupled to the D4S and D810 it tracks moving predators against busy backgrounds with comparative ease compared to previous models.
I felt in love with the lens right at the minute I lifted it out of the box. Comparing with my existing 600mm f4 G, I felt much lighter and better balance although it is only 3 lbs less. I could not shoot hand held with my existing lens but I could with this lens.
