The Nikon 400mm f2.8 AF-S E FL ED VR Lens is a professional FX-format super-telephoto prime lens ideal for sports and news photographers who demand top performance. The lens boasts a professional-grade dust and moisture construction, a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture, a fast auto-focus system (AF-S) and Nikon's new Sport Vibration Reduction (VR) mode to deliver exceptional image quality, speed and accuracy. The newly designed optical construction incorporates 16 elements in 12 groups, including two fluorite and two ED elements. Using fluorite for the front two elements reduces the weight (820g lighter than its predecessor) in the front part of the lens and shifts its centre of gravity to the rear, ensuring comfortable handling and stable operation. Additional features include a professional-grade dust and moisture resistant construction, bearings in the tripod collar ring, a one-piece reversible lens hood and an integrated tripod foot that now faces the front of the lens.
The Key features
Fast super-telephoto lens
Offers 400 mm focal length and fast f/2.8 maximum aperture.
High optical performance
Two fluorite and two ED (extra-low dispersion) glass elements ensure minimal chromatic aberration. The lens boasts a drop-in filter holder and is supplied with an NC filter.
Nano Crystal Coat
Reduces ghosting and flare for greater image clarity, even in backlit situations.
Enables consistent exposures during high-speed bursts.
Vibration Reduction (VR)
With SPORT mode. VR minimises camera shake and lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to four stops slower.¹ SPORT VR mode delivers a stable viewfinder image when shooting high-speed movement, and allows a continuous shooting frame rate and release time lag similar to those that are possible when VR is turned off.
Tripod mount ring
Bearings improve durability and ensure smooth switching between horizontal and vertical orientation.
Actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality. The coating is applied to the meniscus protective glass on the front element of the lens.
Robust and light
Fluorite elements help reduce the weight of this super-telephoto lens to just 3800 g (approx.). The body boasts a professional-grade dust- and moisture-resistant construction.
Ergonomic tripod foot
Faces the front of the lens for more comfortable transportation when the lens is attached to a monopod. An anti-theft security slot keeps the lens secure.
The hood can be flipped and reversed, allowing it to remain attached to the lens during transportation.
The sturdy CT-405 trunk case comes with the lens for convenient, safe transportation.
