Assuming that a 600mm PF is released this summer, the real question is when you would be able to buy one.  I have had an order in for a 500mm PF since August 27, 2018 (about 5 days after the lens was announced) at B&H, and they have no idea when they will be able to fulfill their backorders.  Apparently Nikon is having difficulties producing these lenses, particularly the Fresnel lens.  Given the difficulties Nikon has had  manufacturing the 500mm PF, the expectation of a 600mm PF this summer seems a bridge too far.

Nikon owes all of their customers who have been waiting for months for this lens an explanation as to:  (1) why shipments have been delayed, and (2) when they anticipate producing adequate numbers of these lenses to fulfill customer commitments.  Nikon's explanation that there is high demand for these lenses doesn't begin to approach a satisfactory answer.
