  • Prime Lens
  • Vibration Reduction
  • Silent Wave Motor
  • Filter Diameter: 40.5mm
  • For sports, action and wildlife with clarity and precision, even when shooting handheld in challenging lighting conditions
  • Gast f/2.8 maximum aperture paired with Nikon VR technology delivers exciting low-light capabilities and beautiful bokeh, while a specialized diaphragm maintains consistent exposure during high-speed shooting
  • Pro-grade dust- and moisture-sealing and a fluorine coated front meniscus glass element protect the lens' superb NIKKOR optics on tough assignments while Nikon's advanced lens technologies give you every advantage for catching the shots that matter
  • Fast f/2.8 400mm prime lens:
  • When it comes to capturing sports or wildlife where the action is fast and the conditions are rarely favourable, lens speed can mean the difference between a great shot and a miss
  • At f/2.8, the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR gathers maximum light and renders beautiful bokeh
  • Nikon VR enhances that speed with up to 4 stops of blur-free handheld shooting, including a mode specifically for shooting Sports and Action, while a specialized electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism achieves remarkably consistent exposures when shooting at high frame rates
  • You might not be able to predict the spontaneous, but you certainly can prepare for it
  • Lightweight, rugged and reliable:
  • Thanks to lightweight fluorite lens elements and a magnesium alloy die-cast lens barrel, the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR is nearly 2 lbs. lighter than its predecessor, AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR
  • Anyone who has spent time in the field with a large super-telephoto lens knows every pound counts
  • Since wildlife and action often mean harsh conditions, it features professional grade dust- and moisture-resistant sealing and a fluorine coated meniscus protective glass element at the lens front
  • Superb NIKKOR optics and Nikon lens technologies:
  • The AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR is an advanced lens designed to draw peak potential from high-resolution Nikon D-SLRs
  • The lens' ultra-fast, ultra-quiet Silent Wave Motor (SWM) provides outstanding autofocus performance with seamless manual override (just spin the lens barrel)
  • Two fluorite lens elements (FL) provide superior optical characteristics while minimizing overall weight, while two Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements nearly eliminate chromatic aberration, even at f/2.8
  • In the Box:
  • AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR
  • Slip-on Front Lens Cover
  • LF-4 Rear Lens Cap
  • HK-38 Lens Hood
