Nikon 400mm f/2.8E AF-S FL ED VR

Available Today

The Nikon 400mm f/2.8E AF-S FL ED VR is a pro-grade supertele and update to the popular Nikon 400mm f/2.8G AF-S VR. Key features include:

  • Designed for Sports. The long reach and fast f/2.8 aperture are perfect for sports and action photography, allowing you to freeze fast-moving subject even in low light. The wide aperture also enables images with a very shallow depth-of-field, giving great subject / background separation.
  • Redesigned Build & Optics. The most notable change from its predecessor is the strict diet. Nikon managed to shave 1.72 lbs off by switching to a magnesium alloy die-cast lens barrel. Additionally, two fluorite and two ED lens elements reduce chromatic aberrations while ensuring overall image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity. As expected, you’re still getting pro-grade dust and moisture weather-sealing for peace of mind in less than ideal conditions.
  • Advanced VR. The in-lens Vibration Reduction provides up to 4-stops of correction for shooting in low light. Combined with the weight reduction, this makes the 400mm f/2.8E AF-S FL ED VR truly hand-holdable. There’s a dedicated VR Sport Mode that recognizes panning motion to provide accurate compensation for camera shake.
  • Silent Wave AF Motor. The Silent Wave Motor autofocus mechanism provides quick, quiet and precise autofocus performance. The internal focusing design retains the overall lens length during operation while contributing to a lighter overall weight. Full-time manual focus override is as simple as rotating the focus ring at any time.
  • Specialized Electromagnetic Diaphragm. As first seen in the Nikon 800mm f/5.6E FL ED AF-S VR, the electromagnetic diaphragm ensures consistent exposures when shooting at high frame rates.
