Description

Marrying long reach and a fast design, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR is a super telephoto lens characterized by its bright f/2.8 maximum aperture and sophisticated optical, autofocus, and VR systems. Three extra-low dispersion elements are featured in the optical design, which suppress color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce high clarity and accurate color rendering throughout the aperture range. Individual elements also feature both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings, which control lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast when working in bright and backlit conditions. And for protection, the lens features a weather-resistant magnesium alloy barrel to support working in trying and inclement conditions.

A Silent Wave Motor AF system produces fast, near-silent focusing performance that suits both stills shooting and movie recording, which can instantly be manually overridden by simply turning the manual focus ring. Further contributing to photographing in fast-paced situations and difficult lighting, VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake by up to three shutter speed steps.

Details
  • Super telephoto prime is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it will provide a 600mm equivalent focal length.
  • Impressively bright f/2.8 maximum aperture excels in difficult lighting conditions and also enables extensive control over depth of field for isolating subjects using selective focus techniques.
  • Three extra-low dispersion lens elements work to reduce chromatic aberrations; improve overall image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity; and help to minimize the overall weight of the lens.
  • A Nano Crystal Coat, along with a Super Integrated Coating, has been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
  • Vibration Reduction image stabilization helps to reduce the appearance of camera shake by up to three shutter speed stops, benefiting this lens's use in low-light conditions.
  • Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
  • Dust- and moisture-resistant magnesium-alloy lens barrel benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.
  • A fixed, rotating tripod collar is included with the lens for well-balanced support when working from a monopod or tripod.
  • Compatible with optional AF-S Teleconverter TC-14, TC-17, and TC-20 teleconverters.
