Nikon AF-S Nikkor 600mm f/4E FL ED VR lens review

This Nikon AF-S 600mm f/4E FL ED VR lens review is by Nikhil Bahl:

In 2011 Canon released the lighter versions of their 500mm and 600mm lenses. At that time, I owned Nikon’s very first AF-S 600mm f/4 version which weighed in at 14.5 lbs, on my scale. Safe to say, I didn’t do much hiking with it and was very envious of Canon’s new offerings. About 4 years later, Nikon has released the new 600mm f/4E FL ED VR and 500mm f/4E FL ED VR Lenses. After reading all the specs, it took me only 2 days to order the new 600mm lens. Weight was the biggest factor, but I have been pleasantly surprised by other improvements.

This review is based on my tests at home and over 10,000 images made in the field. The lens was primarily used with a Nikon D4 camera body and some tests were done with the D810 camera body to see how well the lens performed with a high resolution sensor. I have given the lens a good workout in different conditions and the following are my thoughts on various aspects of the lens.
