A new Nikon super telephoto prime lens is coming! According to the latest rumors from DPReview,  Nikon will announce a new AF-S NIKKOR 600mm F5.6E PF ED VR Lens in next several months.

From dpreview:

“I met up with an NPS member today to lay hands on his 500PF. He had it on a D5, so it was quite back heavy. But I liked the weight and it’s clear that it would be better in tough conditions than the 500FL. When I told him I intended to stop on my way home and order one, he told me he had it on good authority that Nikon would be releasing the 600PF this summer.”

This new lens is rumored to be shorter (33cm) than the current Nikkor 600mm F4 E FL ED VR lens (43cm). It is also expected to be significantly lighter and cheaper than the current 600mm f/4 version which weights 3.8kg and costs $12,296.95.
