Nikon Z 180-600mm f5.6-6.3 VR

Nikon expands its range of NIKKOR Z telephoto zoom lenses with the The NIKKOR Z 180-600mm f/5.6-6.3 VR. This super-telephoto zoom reaches even further, easily covering the most
popular focal lengths for wildlife, birds, and aircraft photography, while leaving plenty of flexibility for sports and landscapes too. 


Powerful in-lens Vibration Reduction keeps shots stable, while the internal zoom contributes to
balanced handheld shooting: zoom in or out, then pan or tilt, all without a tripod. Attach the
Z TELECONVERTER TC-2.0x to this lens and it’s possible to achieve a monster reach of 1200 mm while still
shooting handheld! With its lightweight build and reliable weather sealing, this lens is as travel friendly as they come for
telephoto zooms. The NIKKOR Z 180-600mm f/5.6-6.3 super-telephoto lens weighs only 1955 g (approx.).
