Product Overview

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 180-400mm F4E TC1.4 FL ED VR is a professional super telephoto zoom lens for Nikon F-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Nikon in 2018, it has 27 elements in 19 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 180-400mm F4E TC1.4 FL ED VR is externally-zooming. Fortunately, Nikon has provided a zoom lock that at least stops zoom creep. For incremental weathers, Nikon is kind enough to include weather sealing.
As a super telephoto zoom lens, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 180-400mm F4E TC1.4 FL ED VR can be quite useful for wild-life and landscape photography. Built-in image stabilization is almost a must-have at this focal range, and this lens does not disappoint on this front. Owners will also like the available tripod collar.
