Novi NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S

Today, Nikon is pleased to announce a new full-format fixed-range super telephoto lens with built-in teleconverter – NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S. Thanks to a large aperture of f / 2.8 and fantastic AF performance, this is a great lens for sports, wildlife and nature photography. The picture quality is outstanding, whether you’re shooting at 400mm or 560mm, with the built-in 1.4x built-in teleconverter.

The NIKKOR Z 400mm f / 2.8 TC VR S is the first Z-Series lens to use Nikon’s new Silky Swift Sound Coil (VCM) focusing system with optical ABS decoder: autofocus is faster and quieter, with precise subject detection and tracking. It is also the first Z-Series lens with Nikon’s new mesoamorphous coating, which provides the highest anti-reflective performance in NIKKOR lens history. This new layer contains particles smaller than nanoparticles to provide outstanding control over the spirit effect and glare: clarity is perfect, even when photographed with multiple direct light sources in the frame.

Built to allow photographers to take full advantage of the terrain, the NIKKOR Z 400mm f / 2.8 TC VR S is also impressively lightweight, making this super-telephoto lens easier to handle. Sturdy and perfectly balanced, the lens is completely sealed around all moving parts, and the center of gravity is shifted towards the rear for more stable handling. The controls can be adjusted to perfect settings in all situations, including assigning functions to the PV ring of the lens.

Zurab Kiknadze, product manager at Nikon Europe, said: “This is the first supertelephoto fixed focal length lens who joins NIKKOR Z line and brings new opportunities for professional sports, photographers of the animal world i naturee. It is packed with new, innovative technologies that take focus, image sharpness and adaptability to a new level. This lens has everything you need to take a picture. “
