NIKKOR Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S PRIMARY FEATURES

A super-telephoto zoom lens for super reach

Capture distant subjects like never before with this super-telephoto zoom lens. The 100mm to 400mm focal length supports a broad shooting range, from exhilarating sports action, to detailed close-ups of flowers and insects. For photographers who need to long range capabilities, extend the focal distance up to 560mm and 800mm with the Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x and Z TELECONVERTER TC-2.0x respectively and achieve excellent resolution throughout the entire focal range.

When paired with the Z 9’s enhanced AF performance, reliably capture photos of a range of subjects, animals and vehicles, such as birds, cars, trains, and airplanes that move at high speeds.

Unmatched optical performance

The NIKKOR Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S allows photographers to get extremely close to their subjects, up to its shortest [2] minimum focus distance of 0.75m in its class, while delivering outstanding resolution from maximum aperture. Capture clear images and videos offering edge-to-edge sharpness with minimal colour bleeding and fringing, thanks to Nikon’s Extra-low Dispersion (ED) and Super ED lens elements. With these in place, users will be able to control lateral chromatic aberration and significantly reduce axial chromatic aberration. In addition, the adoption of Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat effectively minimises ghosting and flaring for clarity and sharpness in every shot, even with a strong light source present.

While telephoto shooting is normally highly susceptible to camera shake, the Vibration Reduction (VR) performance of the lens effectively reduces blur with up to 5.5-stop [4] compensation, allowing users to shoot with confidence, even at slower shutter speeds. When the lens is paired with an in-camera VR, it works in sync with the 5-axis VR of the camera to further compensate for the yaw, pitch, and vertical and horizontal camera shake for a highly effective image stabilisation.

Users can also select VR [SPORT] mode when it comes to capturing or tracking quick and erratic moving subjects, as it enhances the ease of shooting by providing a stable viewfinder image, even during continuous shooting.

Designed for superior operability

Adopting a newly developed mechanism, the Inner Balance Technology helps to maintain the lens balance by reducing the shifting of the centre of gravity of the lens barrel so that users ultimately find it easier to operate. The mechanism prevents the lens from tilting forward when zooming, and lets users shoot while maintaining the angle of the lens – even when mounting their camera and lens setup on a gimbal head.

Whether you are on the move or zooming in and out on a subject, handling the lens is simple, as retraction due to its heft is preventable even without a lock mechanism. The lens comes with the smallest [2] zoom ring rotation angle at 80 degrees, allowing for easier handling and switching while shooting. Focusing on getting your shots is now easier as you can customise and assign preferred functions on the L-Fn buttons, and efficiently check essential details without looking at the viewfinder on the lens information panel.

Capture with confidence even under extreme conditions, as the lens is designed for durability with a sealant to keep out dust and water droplets. It also features a newly designed lens hood to effectively minimise ghost and flare by deflecting stray light.
