This FX-format compatible telephoto zoom lens delivers optical excellence and stunning image quality for professional photographers. It is ideal for capturing exquisite detail for sports, nature and travel photography, affording a constant maximum aperture of f/4 along with rugged construction for maximum versatility. Continued refinements and new technologies such as Vibration Reduction (VR) II, Nano Crystal Coat and optimized autofocus (AF) modes enhance functionality and improve performance for discerning FX- and DX-format photographers.

The 200-400mm lens benefits from the addition of Nikon’s proprietary Nano Crystal Coat to reduce instances of ghosting and flaring. The result is unparalleled clarity and sharpness in challenging lighting environments typical to sports venues or harsh sunlight.

The new AF-S NIKKOR 200-400mm lens also features Nikon’s VR II image stabilization, which is specifically engineered for each lens to ensure maximum performance. VR II is a valuable asset for both photo and video capture, as image blur introduced by camera shake and telephoto magnification is significantly reduced. Furthermore, users are able to shoot up to four stops slower than otherwise possible, overcoming many of the challenges of handheld shooting at such extreme focal lengths. VR functionality is augmented with Nikon’s Automatic Panning Detection and an Active VR Mode to help compensate for movement from an unstable position such as a moving vehicle. VR is always engaged when shooting in the D-Movie mode on select Nikon digital SLRs, helping to stabilize HD video capture.

The professional focusing features of the new 200-400mm f/4 lens further enhance functionality. Photographers can select from three focus modes to match shooting conditions, including manual mode (M), autofocus with manual override mode (M/A), and a new A/M mode which is used to avoid cancelling the AF setting by unintentionally moving the focus ring while shooting. Both M/A and A/M focus modes enhance AF control with fast and secure switching from automatic and manual focus to adapt to personal shooting preferences and techniques. Additionally, users can activate the AF Recall Mode at the press of a button to allow for instant return to a predetermined point of focus.

This professional lens is constructed of die-cast magnesium for maximum durability and sealed to resist dust and moisture with protective Meniscus glass that safeguards the front element of the lens. The optical formula features four Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements for superior sharpness, colour and image quality, while minimizing chromatic aberration. The new 200-400mm f/4 lens also features Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) technology, which enables high-speed autofocus performance with exceptional accuracy and powerful, super-quiet operation. Nikon's Super Integrated Coating further suppresses flare and offers superior colour consistency throughout the frame.
