Details: 

Brilliant optical quality: Adopting a unique electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism, the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f2.8E FL ED VR provides stable exposure control even during high-speed continuous shooting. It is FX-format compatible and features improved optical performance, autofocus (AF) speed, AF accuracy, and auto exposure (AE) accuracy, making it the professional’s choice for sport photography.

Designed for movement: The AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f2.8E FL ED VR is indispensible, especially in situations where subjects are continually moving quickly. The new Vibration Reduction (VR) ‘SPORT’ mode compensates for the image blur caused by camera shake, which is especially effective when shooting sporting events. The variation of image finder for each frame has also been removed, ensuring natural and comfortable viewing in continuous shooting.

Reliable in rugged conditions: When the going gets rough, you can always count on the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f2.8E FL ED VR for superior shooting possibilities. The built-in tripod mount ring with bearings makes it more durable, and also ensures smooth switching between horizontal and vertical orientation. The meniscus protective glass at the lens front is also coated with fluorine rendering it peel-resistant.

Outstanding design innovations: Shoot images of the highest standards thanks to the fluorite and ED glass elements that ensure minimal chromatic aberration, along with a Nano Crystal Coat that reduces ghosting and flare. Featuring fluorite coating and magnesium alloy in the lens barrel, the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f2.8E FL ED VR is light in weight and durable.
