Nikon Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S Lens

EISA PROFESSIONAL TELEPHOTO LENS 2022-2023

Experience a new pinnacle of performance for sports, action and wildlife photographers. The Nikon Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S Lens is designed to bring you speed, accuracy and versatility with a super-telephoto reach, plus a built-in 1.4x teleconverter to increase it to 560mm. 

The S-Line optics delivers immense detail and groundbreaking anti-reflection performance to leave you with clear images even under harsh conditions. With the new Silky Swift Voice Coil Motor (VCM), the lens focus groups are moved by magnets instead of gears which offers the smoothest, most silent operation of any Nikon AF drive system.

The in-lens optical VR compensates for vibrations. When used with the Nikon Z9 Mirrorless Digital Camera, you have the most formidable sports, action and wildlife kit in Nikon history. The Synchro VR combines the in-lens and in-camera VR image stabilisation systems to offer maximum results.

For sports, action and wildlife photographers

For those who bring us legendary moments from the field, we present the ultimate lens for the job. The reach to put you in the middle of the action, plus a built-in teleconverter to get even closer. The speed, versatility and accuracy of an f/2.8 aperture to ensure you don't need a second chance. Masterpiece optics that capture intense moments with immense details. All in a balanced, lightweight, brilliantly designed lens made possible by Nikon's Z mount. Pair it with the Z 9, and you have the most formidable sports, action and wildlife kit in Nikon history.

Built-in 1.4x teleconverter

Without ever taking your eyes off your subject, breaking posture or losing focus position, flip the smooth teleconverter switch and transform the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S to a 560mm f/4 lens. Extra reach is right at your fingertips

The speed and versatility of f/2.8

Shoot wide open at 400mm to freeze action with faster shutter speeds, isolate your subject against a compressed background, gather more light indoors or outdoors under lights or just create truly spectacular bokeh.

The speed and silence of Silky Swift VCM

Nikon’s new Silky Swift Voice Coil Motor (VCM) uses magnets instead of gears to move the lens focus groups. This design simultaneously delivers higher initial speed, higher accuracy and the smoothest, most silent operation of any Nikon AF drive system. Additionally, vibration within the mechanism has been reduced with an innovative guide bar and minimal space between moving parts, allowing for maximum speed during autofocus.

Absolute accuracy

The NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S uses a specialised sensor often seen in high-precision robotics, an optical ABS (absolute) encoder, to detect and communicate lens position information with extreme accuracy - key to fast, accurate autofocusing.

Groundbreaking anti-glare performance

Experience the highest anti-reflection performance and backlight tolerance in NIKKOR® history. Nikon's innovative Meso Amorphous Coat minimises reflection and ghosting to the utmost limit from incident light in any direction, while ARNEO Coat adds extra protection against vertical incident light reflection. Deliver clear images even under harsh conditions

Powerful optical VR gives you the edge

Even the smallest vibrations can soften details. Nikon's powerful in-lens optical VR compensates for vibrations—an effect equivalent to shooting at a shutter speed up to 5.5 stops* faster. When used with the Z 9, Synchro VR combines the in-lens and in-camera VR image stabilisation systems for maximum results.

Immense details for intense moments

Light dispersion is the enemy of sharpness. The NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S combats it with six specialised lens elements: Two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) and one Super ED glass elements, two lightweight Fluorite (FL) elements and a Short-wavelength Refractive (SR) element. Colour fringing, coma and chromatic aberration are all but eliminated.

S-Line optics. Ultimate image quality

Perhaps no lens embodies Nikon's pursuit of optical excellence more than the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S. Bearing the S-Line designation, it combines the most superb optics, precision design and robust weather-sealing.

Outstanding for video

Focus breathing is suppressed to maintain a consistent angle-of-view as the focus position moves. Use the click-less control ring to make iris adjustments that create a natural shift in brightness. And all the while, the Silky Swift VCM is operating in near silence to preserve your audio integrity.

Built for hardworking pros

20% lighter

Approximately 2.9kg and a full 20% lighter than our F-mount 400mm f/2.8 prime lens. And it includes a built-in teleconverter.

Smooth panning

The centre of gravity is at the tripod ring for smoother panning on monopods and tripods and more stable handheld shooting.

Carry-on approved

Carefully designed to meet airline carry-on size requirements. Keep it safe with you—and out of checked baggage—when flying.

Advanced weather sealing

Rubber gaskets keep dust, dirt and moisture out of all moving parts, including the lens mount. The barrel is robust magnesium alloy and has an ideal balance of strength and low weight. The front and rear elements have Nikon's nonstick Fluorine Coat, which repels oil, moisture and smudges and easily wipes clean. This is a lens built for foul weather, dusty sporting events and the road less travelled.

No-look controls

Every button and switch on the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S is carefully placed for comfortable, no-look operation. Activate the 2 Fn buttons, a new Fn ring, the Memory Set button, control ring, focus ring and teleconverter switch without breaking shooting posture or taking your eye off the viewfinder.

Recall stored focus positions

When you know where the action will occur, like the moment a bird on a perch spreads its wings, you can save a focus position with the Memory Set button. As your subject approaches the decisive moment, instantly snap back to the saved position by rotating the Fn ring—a comfortable, no-look action to ensure you land the shot.
