Look beyond the ordinary with the NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S, a super-telephoto prime lens that has the longest focal length among the current NIKKOR Z line-up1.

With its superb reach, this lens also has an excellent body weight distribution that provides additional comfort and portability when photographing for an extended period. The in-lens Vibration Reduction goes up to 5.0-stops2, and its fast and accurate auto-focus (AF) performance further give the lens an extra edge to capture sharp images. 


Capture any distant subject in your line of sight. The superb reach of the NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S allows you to photograph wildlife, airplane, race cars, or other subjects from a safe distance, while retaining outstanding image resolution. Its focal length can be further extended to 1120mm and 1600mm with the use of Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x or Z TELECONVERTER TC-2.0x respectively3. 


Carry the NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S around with ease for an extended duration as it only weighs approximately 2385g and measures 140mm (D) x 385mm (L) – with the adoption of a Phase Fresnel (PF) lens element, the overall weight and size of the lens has been greatly reduced. 

The lens is also carefully designed to provide comfort by positioning the centre of gravity of the lens close to the photographer’s body, providing greater stability when shooting handheld, and smoother panning when the lens is mounted on a monopod. In addition, anti-slip rubber coating is applied to a larger surface area for a better grip. So whether you are shooting in the wild or at a match, you can stay focused on what’s important for a longer period of time.


Capture sharp images of still and moving subjects with excellent optical performance that is ubiquitous to the NIKKOR S-Line. A combination of Extra-low Dispersion (ED), Short-wavelength Refractive (SR), and Phase Fresnel (PF) lens elements are utilised to effectively suppress chromatic aberration even at maximum aperture, while Nano Crystal Coat and placement of the PF lens element significantly minimise ghosting effects. What’s more, the in-lens Vibration Reduction (VR) effectively compensates for camera shakes of up to 5.0-stops2, or up to 5.5-stops2 Synchro VR when used in tandem with the Z 9.

Focus and lock in onto your subject quickly and precisely, even at super-telephoto focal distance; score that shot without disturbing the environment or a shy animal with a stepping motor (STM) that operates in near-silent. With all these features, you can capture the finest details of a squirrel running up a tree, an airplane taking off at full throttle, or a hawk swooping down at speed. 


Beautiful yet functional, the lens incorporates a rubber gasket on the lens mount, and sealing on different parts to prevent dust and liquid4 from entering the lens. The frontmost lens element also has a layer of fluorine coat for superior anti-fouling performance, so that dirt and dust can be removed easily. 

Fall in love with not just what’s in the frame, but what’s in your hand, too. The lens is carefully crafted to incorporate the iconic look from the F mount and Z mount, taking the symbolic gold ring and engraved metal plate from the former, and the S-Line badge from the latter. The new HB-104 lens hood also features an improved lock mechanism that allows you to attach or remove it with one hand. Together with the customisable L-Fn buttons that save your favourite settings according to your preference, and Memory Recall function5 that saves your frequently used focus points, the NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S is simply a product designed with optical performance, operability and elegance in mind. 

1As of 6 April 2022.
2Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when attached to a camera with full-frame (Nikon FX-format) sensor, with the camera's VR function set to "NORMAL".
3AF performance may deteriorate depending on the subject, brightness and focus position regardless of the camera body, causing inaccurate focus, slow focusing speed or flashing of the focus point.   
4The lens is not guaranteed to be dust- and drip-resistant in all situations or under all conditions.
5The 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 firmware for cameras must be updated to the latest version is required. For other models, this function will be supported via later firmware updates.
