Switch focal lengths without switching your gear. Photograph wildlife, sports, or any other subject with erratic movements easily with the in-built 1.4x teleconverter that allows you to switch between 400mm or 560mm focal length – all at the flick of a lever that is optimally positioned near to the lens barrel for your easy reach. Experience no interruptions when achieving that perfect shot.


Achieve stunning image quality with the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S. Experience revolutionary top tier anti-reflection performance from Nikon with the new Meso Amorphous Coat, an innovative structure made up of a special material with a minute mesoporous structure, resulting in a powerful anti-reflective effect that deflects stray light coming from diagonal or vertical directions. Delivering the highest performance under any lighting conditions, the Meso Amorphous Coat and ARNEO Coat work together to minimise flares and ghosting effects so you can focus on capturing the sharpest images possible.


When it comes to capturing key moments, speed and clarity is of the essence. This lens comes with a Vibration Reduction (VR) system that can compensate up to 5.51 stops to effectively reduce camera shake, even at super-telephoto focal distance. Additionally, the bright f/2.8 maximum aperture lets you capture clear and sharp images with a natural bokeh even in low light or while shooting at a lower shutter speed.

Never let any defining action pass you by. For the first time in any NIKKOR Z lens, the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S adopts a new Silky Swift VCM (voice coil motor)2 as an AF drive motor, along with an optical ABS (absolute) encoder that detects with high precision, enabling you to simultaneously capture fast moving action with unparalleled speed, accuracy, and with quiet operation3.


The NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S is made to be as light as possible by using fluorite lens elements, in addition to other lens elements including the Short-wavelength Refractive (SR) lens element, and with a lens body constructed out of a robust magnesium alloy. Weighing approximately 2,950g, it is built to be carried and operated with ease, making it a nimble choice for photographers. By having the centre of gravity at the tripod collar, which is closer to the camera body and photographer, the lens provides better weight distribution and stability, which makes panning on a monopod or handheld shooting an absolute dream.



When unpredictable situations arise, this is a lens you can rely on. With a magnesium alloy structure with sealing across movable parts on the lens barrel, and a rubber gasket around the lens mount for superior dust and drip resistance4, this highly robust lens can accompany you anywhere. To prevent theft, it has a security slot which is compatible with security wires that are readily available in the market for an extra peace of mind. Highly customisable with easy-to-access buttons and lens rings, including a memory recall function5 that lets you instantly return to a pre-set focus position, it feels like an extension of you, streamlining your operation without your eyes ever having to leave the viewfinder. Add the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S to your lens line-up and seize every decisive moment.
