The AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f2.8E FL ED VR is a superior 400mm super-telephoto lens that captures incredibly crisp images even from the maximum aperture, and is the perfect combination of impressive optical performance and amazing portability. With design innovations and new features such as the Vibration Reduction (VR) ‘SPORT’ mode, the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f2.8E FL ED VR gives you nothing short of clear, beautiful images.

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.
