Super-telephoto prime for the traveler.
Just over 9 inches long and 2.5 lbs., the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S pairs great with Z cameras and fits most gear bags and backpacks, so you can always have it on-hand.

400mm. Bring the action to you.
400mm is an ideal lens for birds, wildlife and action. It provides the massive reach you need to get closer with enough field of view to easily acquire and track fast subjects. You can even focus on subjects as close as 2.5 meters away to reveal every little detail.

Prime image quality.

Sharpness.
Super ED, ED and SR glass elements virtually eliminate chromatic aberration and color fringing.

Clarity.
Point-light sources are rendered sharp.

Coverage.
Outstanding resolution that extends all the way to the frame edges with minimal vignetting.

Bokeh beyond f/4.5.
The optical design of the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S is optimized for a smooth bokeh effect that enhances the natural compression of 400mm.

S-Line. Premium optics.
The NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S bears the S-Line designation, reserved for premium NIKKOR Z lenses with the most advanced optics, superior resolution, beautiful bokeh, robust weather sealing and precision design.

Up to 6.0 stops of VR.
Extraordinary built-in optical VR achieves an effect of shooting up to 6.0 stops faster on a camera that supports Synchro VR and 5.5 stops faster on all other Z cameras. Drag the shutter with confidence for smooth panning shots.

Quick. Quiet. Accurate.
Autofocus is powered by Nikon's STM stepping motor, a highly efficient type of motor that moves in precise intervals at remarkable speed and in near silence, ideal for video and capturing skittish wildlife.

Outstanding balance & handling.
Designed for on-the-go handheld shooting, the lens' center of gravity is closer to the camera body. This makes it easier to bring the camera to your eye, acquire your subject and fluidly track it.

Pairs great with Z teleconverters.
The lens becomes a 560mm f/6.3 lens with the Z Teleconverter TC-1.4x or an 800mm f/9 lens with the Z Teleconverter TC-2.0x.

Tight compositions with DX Crop Mode.
Mimics the field of view of a 600mm lens for a closer framing of your subject.

Nothing holding you back.

Advanced weather sealing.
Rubber gaskets keep dust, dirt and moisture out of moving parts, including the lens mount. The front element has Nikon's nonstick Fluorine Coat, which repels oil, moisture and smudges and easily wipes clean.

Nano Crystal Coat blocks flare.
Shoot into harsh backlighting with virtually no internal reflections, glare or cross-lighting. Capture sharp, high contrast images at the most challenging times of day.

Recall stored focus positions.
Save a focus position with the Memory Set button. As your subject approaches the decisive moment, instantly snap back to that saved position using the Fn or Fn2 buttons.

Form meets function.

Convenient. Screw-on filters.
Uses standard 95mm threaded circular filters.

Make it yours. Control ring.
Smooth, precise and clickless. Manually adjust aperture, ISO or exposure compensation.

Fine tune. Manual focus ring.
Seamlessly override the AF system with smooth, accurate adjustments.

Shortcut. L-Fn buttons.
Map them to subject tracking, AF Lock, image playback and more. For convenient reach, L-Fn2 is available from four separate locations around the lens barrel.

Set boundaries. Focus limit.
Activate to ignore foreground elements closer than 6 meters.

Secure. Kensington slot.
Prevents theft in remote shooting situations.

Out of the way. Quick-release tripod foot.
Rotate the lens from landscape to portrait. Quickly release the foot for handheld shooting.

Technology

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

Super ED Glass
Nikon has also developed Super ED glass featuring even lower dispersion properties and extremely high performance in reducing the secondary spectrum, to minimize chromatic aberration even further, as well as other lens aberrations.

Short-Wavelength Refractive Lens
SR is a high- and specialized-dispersion glass lens that refracts light with wavelengths shorter than that of blue. By controlling short-wavelength light, the lens is able to achieve highly precise chromatic aberration compensation so that the colors in your images are more accurately reproduced. It also allows for more flexible optical designs, which allows for compact, lighter lenses to be designed.

Vibration Reduction
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.

Stepping Motor
NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.

Fluorine Coat
Photographers need gear that can withstand the elements. Nikon's fluorine coat effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt, ensuring easy removal even when they adhere to the lens surface. Nikon's fluorine coat endures a high frequency of lens surface wiping and its anti-reflective effect also contributes to the capture of clear images.

Nano Crystal Coat
An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.

IF Lens
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism
An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting.

A/M
A/M stands for Auto-Priority Manual Mode. This mode also enables an easy transition from autofocus to manual during AF operation. However, mode switch sensitivity has been altered to reduce the possibility of sudden unintentional switching to manual focus while shooting.
