    Item Description

    Pros who spend time behind a super-telephoto lens know a hard truth: when you need a teleconverter, you often need it in a hurry. For these moments, Nikon proudly introduces the AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR, a super-telephoto zoom lens with a built-in 1.4X teleconverter. Capture sports, events and wildlife in lifelike brilliance from 180-400mm, then, without breaking shooting posture, engage the integrated teleconverter and increase your reach to 560mm f/5.6 (840mm equivalent on a DX body). Incorporating remarkable advancements in optical design, autofocus performance, Vibration Reduction and durability, this lens is bound to become the new standard for serious field photographers.

    Designed for those who go the distance

    A NIKKOR Gold Series super-telephoto zoom lens unlike any before it.

    Combining Nikon's first ever built-in 1.4X teleconverter with a new optical design, advanced lens technologies and comprehensive weather sealing, the AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR can help pros shooting sports, wildlife and events perform at their absolute best.

    A powerhouse for sports, events and wildlife

    Harness speed, consistency, low-light performance and image quality across a versatile 180-400mm focal length range with a constant f/4 maximum aperture. Activate the integrated 1.4X teleconverter and increase reach to 560mm at f/5.6.

    Masterful images

    Capture amazing images in nearly any light, thanks to an advanced optical design that includes 8 Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements, 1 Fluorite element and Nano Crystal Coat for maximum sharpness and minimal distortion.

    Nikon's first built-in teleconverter

    When you're in the field, adding a teleconverter to a large lens can be a tense operation, especially when dust or moisture is present. With the AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR, its as easy as flicking a switch.

    Reach when you need it

    Engage the 1.4X teleconverter and increase focal length to 560mm, f/5.6. On a DX camera like the ultra-fast D500, this is an 840mm equivalent angle of view.

    Never break posture

    The teleconverter switch can be comfortably operated by most using a right-hand finger without releasing the camera grip or taking an eye off the viewfinder.

    Maximum sharpness

    Since it's integrated into the lens, the teleconverter maximizes light transmission to the sensor with very little falloff for tack-sharp images.

    Blazing fast acquisition, locked-on tracking

    The AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR draws peak performance from the 153-point AF system in recent Nikon DSLRs like the D5, D850 and D500. The sensors at the outer areas of the frame can be used as cross-type sensors*, drastically improving acquisition speed when a subject enters the frame. Enhanced servo drive control and higher-speed inversion of the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) improves tracking, even with subjects that radically change speed or direction.

    Redesigned tripod collar

    Smaller, lighter and more comfortable for handheld shooting and transport, the tripod collar also has ball-bearing smoothness for switching between horizontal and landscape shooting.

    Assignable Function buttons

    Activate AF/AE Lock, switch between AF Area Modes and more using the conveniently positioned assignable Function buttons.

    Lightweight and durable

    At 3,500 grams, it's lighter than comparable lenses on the market thanks to a Fluorite lens element, magnesium alloy lens barrel and Internal Focusing (IF) design.

    Ready for tough assignments

    You can't chase sports, events and wildlife without getting a little dirt on your hands. The AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR is built for the field with advanced dust and moisture sealing on all moveable parts, a rugged magnesium alloy lens barrel and protective front meniscus.

    Vibration Reduction, evolved

    The AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR incorporates Nikon's latest Vibration Reduction (VR) design for up to 4 stops** of shutter speed increase, even when using the built-in teleconverter. This new VR system starts up immediately after powering on the camera, and it includes three shooting modes, including one for sports and fast action and one specifically for tripod shooting.
