Product Overview

Nikon Nikkor Z 400mm F4.5 VR S is a super telephoto prime lens for Nikon Z-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Nikon in 2022, it has 19 elements in 13 groups.
Compared to the Nikkor Z 400mm F2.8 TC VR S, this 400mm F4.5 is more compact and more affordable. Never the less, as a super telephoto prime lens, the Nikkor Z 400mm F4.5 VR S is a specialty instrument best suited for professional sports and wild-life photographers. Built-in image stabilization is almost a must-have at this focal range, and this lens does not disappoint on this front.
