Nikon Z 400mm F4.5 VR S

NIKKOR Z 400m f/4.5 VR S has been designed for extreme portability, this lens lets photographers take advantage of a 400 mm focal length and breathtaking S-line image quality—in an impressive lightweight, travel-friendly package. Whether you are interested in photographing wildlife, sports, fast action, distant portraits, with its long reach, brilliant resolution, and comfortable handling, this tough yet compact and lightweight super-telephoto lens puts so many shots within reach. Weighing just 1245 g (approx.) and with a total length of just 234.5 mm, its incredibly portable build puts the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S firmly in a class of its own. Photographers can even keep this super-telephoto lens attached to their camera when walking around—making it easier to trek out to the best vantage points. Stills or video, the outstanding resolving power of this S-line lens delivers images with beautiful bokeh, colour, contrast, and clarity. Nikon’s powerful, in-lens optical VR keeps shots steady, while Synchro VR allows up to 6 stops of compensation when this lens is paired with the Z 9. The f/4.5 maximum aperture allows plenty of opportunities to work creatively with available light, and AF performance is fast, accurate, and exceptionally quiet. In addition, this super-telephoto lens supports use of Z teleconverters, which can extend the reach to 560 mm or 800 mm.
