The AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR with 500 mm focal length and the AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR with a 600mm focal length fuel powerful yet precise image capture, be it on location in the rainforest and savannah, or even at the racing pit..
AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR and AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR Primary Features
At approximately 3090g and 3810g respectively, the AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR and AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR are designed for high optical precision in a significantly lighter body with the use of two fluorite lens elements. Additionally, both lenses feature barrels crafted from magnesium alloy to reduce weight yet achieve durability.
