Nikon has announced the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S Lens for its mirrorless cameras and it features a built-in 1.4x teleconverter to give a maximum focal length of 560mm. The US price of the lens is $13,999.95 and now available for pre-order at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
It is the first Z lens to feature Nikon’s new Silky Swift Voice Coil Motor (VCM) focusing system with optical ABS encoder. It’s designed to deliver faster autofocus that is quieter than normal yet enables perfect subject acquisition and tracking.
The Nikon Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S is also the first Z lens to have Nikon’s new Meso Amorphous Coat, which is claimed to deliver the highest anti-reflection performance in Nikkor history. This new coating uses particles even smaller than nano particles and is said to give better control of ghosting and flare with excellent clarity even when shooting scenes with multiple direct light sources
At 2950 g (6 lb 8.1 oz), the Nikkor Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S is light for its focal length and aperture. It’s also fully sealed against moisture and dust, plus its centre of gravity is towards the lens mount to make it feel more stable and balanced in use.
Like several Nikon Z lenses, the Nikkor Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S has customisable controls including a Function ring. Continue reading “Nikon NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S Lens Price, Specs, Release Date”
