Fluid panning and tracking.

The center of gravity on the NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S has been moved toward the rear of the lens, nearer the camera body. This optimal balance is ideal for quick acceleration during handheld panning and stopping your movement on a dime. Acquire and track fast-moving subjects withfluid precision.

Spectacular videos from any distance.

With its extreme reach, brilliant resolution and quiet focusing, the NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S opens new possibilities for long-distance videos. Optical VR keeps handheld shots steady, and suppressed focus breathing keeps the angle of view consistent while tracking subjects moving toward or away from you. Record 4K/120p with the flagship Z 9's 2.3x crop factor—equivalent to an 1840mm angle of view—for even more reach and incredible detail in slow motion.

Nothing holding you back.

Brilliant. By design.

Technology

  • PF_Large.png

    Phase Fresnel

    Phase Fresnel (PF) lens elements effectively compensate for chromatic aberration and ghosting when combined with ordinary glass lens elements. The PF lens element is based upon the Phase Fresnel lens, which appears to have a series of concentric circles engraved onto it. Utilizing a Phase Fresnel lens element allows Nikon engineers to use fewer lens elements, resulting in a more compact and lightweight lens. Due to the characteristics of a PF (Phase Fresnel) lens that utilizes the photo diffraction phenomenon, when there is a strong light source within the frame or when light enters the lens from outside of the frame, ring-shaped colored flare may occur according to shooting conditions. This phenomenon can be minimized with “PF Flare Control” to be included in Capture NX-D (ver.1.1.0 or later). For more information, see software Help/manual. Capture NX-D is available from the Nikon website. Be sure to keep your software up to date.

  • VR_Large.png

    Vibration Reduction

    A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.

  • ED_Large.png

    ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

    An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

  • SR_Large.png

    Short-Wavelength Refractive Lens

    SR is a high- and specialized-dispersion glass lens that refracts light with wavelengths shorter than that of blue. By controlling short-wavelength light, the lens is able to achieve highly precise chromatic aberration compensation so that the colors in your images are more accurately reproduced. It also allows for more flexible optical designs, which allows for compact, lighter lenses to be designed.

  • STM_Large.png

    Stepping Motor

    NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.

  • IF_Large.png

    IF Lens

    A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

  • AM_Large.png

    A/M

    A/M stands for Auto-Priority Manual Mode. This mode also enables an easy transition from autofocus to manual during AF operation. However, mode switch sensitivity has been altered to reduce the possibility of sudden unintentional switching to manual focus while shooting.

  • E_Large.png

    Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

    An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting.

  • FLC_Large.jpg

    Fluorine Coat

    Photographers need gear that can withstand the elements. Nikon’s fluorine coat effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt, ensuring easy removal even when they adhere to the lens surface. Nikon’s fluorine coat endures a high frequency of lens surface wiping and its anti-reflective effect also contributes to the capture of clear images.

  • N_Large.png

    Nano Crystal Coat

    An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.

*The cameras compatible with this function are the Z 9, Z 7II and Z 6II only at the timing of the product release. When using the function, the camera's firmware update to the latest version is required.

1When combined with the Z 9, the effect of 5.5 stops is achieved with Synchro VR activation. An effect of 5.0 stops is achieved with the lens alone.

2Based on CIPA Standard; in NORMAL mode; this value is achieved when attached to a mirrorless camera equipped with a 35mm film size image sensor.
