Seamlessly switch and shoot.

Capture high-speed action with the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S. A fast super-telephoto prime lens, the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S comes with a built-in teleconverter to allow you to switch between focal lengths easily.

2 focal lengths.
1 lens.

Photograph wildlife, sports, or any other fast-moving subject easily with the in-built 1.4x teleconverter that allows you to switch between 400mm or 560mm focal length with an f/4 aperture – all at the flick of a lever that is designed for easy reach while you maintain your position, posture, and grip.

Speed meets accuracy.

When it comes to capturing those game-changing moments, the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S has you covered. The lens comes with a built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) system that can compensate up to 5.51 stops to effectively reduce camera shake, even at super-telephoto focal distance. Additionally, the bright f/2.8 maximum aperture2 lets you capture clear and sharp images with a natural bokeh.

Designed for movement.

The NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S is made to be as light as possible, utilising fluorite lens elements and a robust magnesium alloy structure for the body. Weighing approximately 2,950g, the lens is built to be carried and operated with ease.

Balanced to perfection.

With the centre of gravity at the tripod collar, the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S provides better weight distribution and stability, which makes handheld shooting an absolute dream.

A lens that reacts with you.

Whether it’s capturing unpredictable wildlife scenes or a sports race, photograph these moments decisively with faster reaction times and greater accuracy. For the first time in any NIKKOR Z lens, the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S has adopted new innovative technology, including a Silky Swift VCM (voice coil motor)3 as an AF drive motor, along with an optical ABS (absolute) encoder that detects with high precision, enabling you to simultaneously capture fast moving action with unparalleled speed, accuracy, and with quiet operation4.

Dust-and-drip resistance.

The NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S has a magnesium alloy structure with sealing across movable parts on the lens barrel and a rubber gasket around the lens mount for superior dust and drip resistance5. A flourine-coated front element also repels dust, water and oil which makes it much easier to clean.

Highly customisable.

Enjoy easy-to-access buttons and lens rings, including a customisable control and Fn ring. Return to your favourite focus positions using the memory recall function6.

Stunning image quality.

Delivering the highest performance under any lighting conditions, the revolutionary Meso Amorphous Coat and ARNEO Coat work together to minimise flares and ghosting effects so you can focus on capturing the sharpest images possible.
