Unparallelled TelephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. Performance

The AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f2.8E FL ED VR is a superior 400mm super-telephoto lens that captures incredibly crisp images even from the maximum apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. and is the perfect combination of impressive optical performance and amazing portability. With design innovations and new features such as the Vibration Reduction (VR) ‘SPORT’ mode, the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR gives you nothing short of clear, beautiful images.


Brilliant optical quality

Adopting a unique electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism, the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR provides stable exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. control even during high-speed continuous shooting. It is FX-format compatible and features improved optical performance, autofocus (AF) speed, AF accuracy, and auto exposure (AE) accuracy, making it the professional’s choice for sports photography.


Designed for movement

The AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR is indispensable, especially in situations where subjects are continually moving quickly. The new Vibration Reduction (VR) ‘SPORT’ mode compensates for the image blur caused by camera shake, which is especially effective when shooting sporting events. The variation of image finder for each frame has also been removed, ensuring natural and comfortable viewing in continuous shooting.


Reliable in rugged conditions

When the going gets rough, you can always count on the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f2.8E FL ED VR for superior shooting possibilities. The built-in tripod mount ring with bearings makes it more durable and also ensures smooth switching between horizontal and vertical orientation. The meniscus protective glass at the lens front is also coated with fluorine rendering it peel-resistant.


Outstanding design innovations

Shoot images of the highest standards thanks to the fluorite and ED glass elements that ensure minimal chromatic aberration, along with a Nano Crystal Coat that reduces ghosting and flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. . Featuring fluorite coating and magnesium alloy in the lens barrel, the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR is light in weight and durable.
