  • Super-Telephoto Zoom Lens
  • FX-format Compatible
  • Built-in Vibration Reduction
  • Filter Diameter: 52mm
  • Nano Crystal Coat
  • Delivers optical excellence and stunning image quality for professional photographers
  • Ideal for capturing exquisite detail for sports, nature and travel photography with a constant maximum aperture of f/4 and rugged construction for maximum versatility
  • Continued refinements and technologies such as Vibration Reduction (VR) II, Nano Crystal Coat and optimized autofocus (AF) modes enhance functionality and improve performance for discerning FX- and DX-format photographers
  • An essential tool for photographers who require long focal lengths and maximum versatility without sacrificing image quality
  • Nano Crystal Coat reduces instances of ghosting and flaring. The result is unparalleled clarity and sharpness in challenging lighting environments typical to sports venues or harsh sunlight
  • Features Nikon's VR II image stabilization, which is specifically engineered for each lens to ensure maximum performance. VR II is a valuable asset for both photo and video capture, as image blur introduced by camera shake and telephoto magnification is significantly reduced. Furthermore, users are able to shoot up to four stops* slower than otherwise possible, overcoming many of the challenges of handheld shooting at such extreme focal lengths. VR functionality is augmented with Nikon's Automatic Panning Detection and an Active VR Mode to help compensate for movement from an unstable position such as a moving vehicle. VR is always engaged when shooting in the D-Movie mode on select Nikon digital SLRs, helping to stabilize HD video capture
  • Photographers can select from three focus modes to match shooting conditions, including manual mode (M), autofocus with manual override mode (M/A), and a A/M mode which is used to avoid cancelling the AF setting by unintentionally moving the focus ring while shooting. Both M/A and A/M focus modes enhance AF control with fast and secure switching from automatic and manual focus to adapt to personal shooting preferences and techniques. Additionally, users can activate the AF Recall Mode at the press of a button to allow for instant return to a predetermined point of focus
  • Constructed of die-cast magnesium for maximum durability and sealed to resist dust and moisture with protective Meniscus glass that safeguards the front element of the lens. The optical formula features four Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements for superior sharpness, colour and image quality, while minimizing chromatic aberration
  • Features Nikon's exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) technology, which enables high-speed autofocus performance with exceptional accuracy and powerful, super-quiet operation
  • Nikon's Super Integrated Coating further suppresses flare and offers superior colour consistency throughout the frame

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexibility King I bought this lens after considering it for a number of years. I also have the 300 f2.8 vr2 and the 80-400 G. I know it is a lot of overlap but each lens plays a specific part. The 200-400 f4 vrii comes into its own as a very flexible lens with great sharpness and fast focus. It works well on any of the Nikon Camera's. The strength of this lens is that it is very good at close range, up to 50-60 yards. Great lens for big animals and birds at close range. I have used it for sport and perform very well. For me this lens on one camera and the 70-200 f2.8 works as a great combination. It works reasonably well with the Nikon 1.4 TC iii but really at its best as a naked lens. Many Wildlife and sport photographers use this lens and has been a game changer for Nikon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Optics and Manageable Size For a wildlife lens, the Nikon 200-400mm f/4 zoom lens offers the best combination of resolution, contrast, flexible focal length, and manageable size on the market. Below is a photo of a male African Lion taken with a Nikon D3 camera body at a shutter speed of 1/200 of a second, an aperture of f/7.1, a focal length of 380mm, an ISO of 200, Matrix Metering, Auto White Balance, and fill flash from a Nikon SB-800.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Good as it Gets I've been shooting with this lens for the last two years and prior to that the first version for four and a half years. It is as fine a lens as can be had for birds in flight, hand carried, as well as anything else. It's versatility is second to none. Some may complain about it sharpness but I haven't experienced that except when out at longer distances like 200 to 300 yards. Then again even the large primes have their limits and are not as versatile. I used to smile when getting on line and asking what the finest lens was for birds in flight and would always read the Canon 100-400. My shooting friends that shoot with it, now know it's not in the same class. It wasn't until two years ago that Canon finally came out with their 200-400. The lens and camera weigh 10.5 lbs. I'm not exceptionally strong being 68 years old but do hand carry it with no sling, allowing me to shoot at any angle. Getting close is the key to taking great photos and lots of practice. Don't be one that just sits and admires the lens, go out and shoot and shoot and shoot. By the way I've come to depend on three shot bursts multiple times if needed. I wish all of you happy shooting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sports and nature lens "I have to say, out of all the gear and lenses I have used for my sports and nature photography, this lens has blown my mind. The auto focus is super fast. I love that I can pull focus on a subject very quickly. The lens is very durable and feels very good in the hand. The distance from 200-400 covers all the work I do for my company and the depth of field I get with the lens is amazing. Yet, I don't own this lens and rent it out, but I would definitly love too have one. Its an amazing tele lens for sports and nature photography."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pro-Series lens Just received this lens on 4/23/2014. This lens has fast focus speed, VRII works excellent. For a wildlife photographer the 70-200 F2.8 and the 200-400 F4 will cover 90% of your needs. We sold the 500mm F4 and replaced it with this lens for the added capabilities of the zoom range. Just got back from photographing Mt Goats and this lens works excellent hand held with VR. Have not tried the 1.4 tele-converter but hope it works as good as it did with the 500mm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens It's a great lens with smooth & fast focus & the VRII working perfect the most best thing in this lens you can go between the normal zoom 200mm to the super tele zoom 400mm I use it to photograph birds with the TC-14E II the focus will be little bet slower with the teleconverter the only problem is the wight of lens you will need a tripod to help you with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens I owned the VRI edition for seven years which I sold for the VRII edition. It's my main wildlife lens and I love it. It's sharp, versatile and fast. In the very beginning I had some issues regarding sharpness on long distances but that happened to be human error. Nowadays I use it on a D800E with the TC2.0III at F/8 and it is absolutely stunning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a lens!! I have owned this lens for a few months now. I still am amazed at how clear and crisp the pictures are. I have had the wonderful opportunity of photographing NFL teams, many local high school teams, and the United States Olympic Wrestling Trials in Iowa. The clarity of the pictures made me look so good. Weight is only a problem if you don't use a monopod or tripod. I look forward to the photographic opportunities when I can use this amazing lens. I have now attached a 2x teleconverter and have taken simply amazing pictures of the moon. Very graphic and detailed. I can't wait for the next adventure when I get to use this lens.
