NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z 180-600mm f/5.6-6.3 VR @ 600 mm, 1/250 sec at f/6.3, ISO 560

For the last 4 or 5 years my longest focal length lens has been 200mm. I used to own an F-mount Sigma 50-500mm lens but sold it after moving to Nikon Z mirrorless (because the lens (AF) didn’t work on my Z7)

So I’d been waiting for a (Z native) long lens replacement for a number of years

Not just for birds and wildlife but for any of a number of reasons for having access to a longer lens

Now that I have the new Z 180-600mm it was time to try it out. Took it out whilst on a local (bush)walk with our dog 🙂

Spied what I think is a lovely looking Kingfisher way in the distance (this image is at 600mm and is also pretty heavily cropped in addition). I couldn’t actually get any closer (not just because I had a dog 🙂 but also) because it was over a river 🙂

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.
