A 600mm super-telephoto lens has been on Nikon’s Z-series roadmap for some time, and now that we have the full juicy details, it’s sounding like a lens that’s well worth the lengthy wait. 

A welcome surprise is that the Nikon Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S comes complete with a built-in 1.4x teleconverter, much like the recently released Nikon Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S. This effectively makes it two primes in one, transforming to a 840mm f/5.6 at the flick of a switch. While we’ve yet to put it through our lab tests, Nikon claims that there’s no discernible drop-off in image quality with the teleconverter engaged.
