Lighten your load.
At a mere 5.25 pounds and just over 15 inches, the NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S is the most mobile, comfortable handling 800mm super-telephoto lens we’ve ever created. You can even shoot it handheld. The secret is Nikon’s proven Phase Fresnel element, which allows the lens to be lighter, shorter with fewer elements and pristine image quality.
800mm. Conquer distance.
A long lens is a must when you can’t get physically closer to your subject. Whether you’re photographing birds and wildlife from the blind, framing tight compositions of banking planes from the ground or recording surfers from the sand, the NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S brings the action right to your viewfinder.
See even farther with Z teleconverters.
The NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S is compatible with the 1.4x and 2x Z series teleconverters. Increase your reach to 1120mm or 1600mm with outstanding resolution, no loss of focus points and very little extra weight and length.
Tight compositions with DX Crop Mode.
Switch your shooting area to DX Crop Mode, and the NIKKOR Z 800mm f/6.3 VR S takes on an angle of view equivalent to 1.5x the focal length—1200mm alone and up to 2400mm when using a Z series teleconverter.
Every detail matters.
The Phase Fresnel element is positioned to minimize ghosting. When combined with three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements and one Short-wavelength Refractive (SR) element, axial chromatic aberration is virtually eliminated. From the sharp contrast of small branches to the finest feathers of distant birds, every detail is rendered with stunning precision.

Even the smallest vibrations can soften details. Nikon’s powerful in-lens optical VR compensates for vibrations—an effect equivalent to shooting at a shutter speed up to 5.0 stops* faster. When used with the Z 9, Synchro VR combines the in-lens and in-camera systems for up to 5.5 stops of VR.
