Nikon NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S Lens

Super-telephoto prime for the traveler.

Just over 9 inches long and 2.5 lbs., the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S pairs great with Z cameras and fits most gear bags and backpacks, so you can always have it on-hand.

Bring the action to you.

400mm is an ideal lens for birds, wildlife and action. It provides the massive reach you need to get closer with enough field of view to easily acquire and track fast subjects. You can even focus on subjects as close as 2.5 meters away to reveal every little detail.

Bokeh beyond f/4.5.

The optical design of the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S is optimized for a smooth bokeh effect that enhances the natural compression of 400mm.

[Store View]S-Line. Premium optics.

The NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S bears the S-Line designation, reserved for premium NIKKOR Z lenses with the most advanced optics, superior resolution, beautiful bokeh, robust weather sealing and precision design.

Up to 6.0 stops of VR.

Extraordinary built-in optical VR achieves an effect of shooting up to 6.0 stops* faster on a camera that supports Synchro VR and 5.5 stops* faster on all other Z cameras. Drag the shutter with confidence for smooth panning shots.

*Based on CIPA Standard; in NORMAL mode; this value is achieved when attached to a mirrorless camera equipped with a 35mm film size image sensor.

Quick. Quiet. Accurate.

Autofocus is powered by Nikon's STM stepping motor, a highly efficient type of motor that moves in precise intervals at remarkable speed and in near silence, ideal for video and capturing skittish wildlife.

Outstanding balance & handling.

Designed for on-the-go handheld shooting, the lens' center of gravity is closer to the camera body. This makes it easier to bring the camera to your eye, acquire your subject and fluidly track it.

Pairs great with Z teleconverters.

The lens becomes a 560mm f/6.3 lens with the Z Teleconverter TC-1.4x or an 800mm f/9 lens with the Z Teleconverter TC-2.0x.

Tight compositions with DX Crop Mode.

Mimics the field of view of a 600mm lens for a closer framing of your subject.

Nothing holding you back.

Advanced weather sealing.

Rubber gaskets keep dust, dirt and moisture out of moving parts, including the lens mount. The front element has Nikon’s nonstick Fluorine Coat, which repels oil, moisture and smudges and easily wipes clean.

Perfect dustproof and waterproof performance is not guaranteed under all conditions.

Nano Crystal Coat blocks flare.

Shoot into harsh backlighting with virtually no internal reflections, glare or cross-lighting. Capture sharp, high contrast images at the most challenging times of day.
