Nikon NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S – Mirrorless Camera Lens. Shoot for greatness with the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S from Nikon. Ideal for sports and wildlife and offering impressive reach with impressive speed, this super-telephoto lens is characterized by its bright f/2.8 maximum aperture and sophisticated optical, autofocus, and VR systems. Distinguishing itself among most prime lenses, this 400mm lens features a built-in 1.4x teleconverter to allow for on-the-fly switching to an effective 560mm f/4 lens for greater reach.
A newly designed Meso Amorphous Coat, together with the lens’ ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats, provide outstanding anti-glare performance when working in strong lighting and backlit conditions. Balancing the optical merits of the lens, a multi-focusing system combines Silky Swift VCM autofocus with a powerful STM stepping motor for quiet, fast, and precise autofocus performance. Additionally, Vibration Reduction image stabilization reduces the appearance of camera shake by approximately 5.5 stops and supports Synchro VR for more refined stabilization when paired with compatible cameras.
Shoot for greatness.
A new pinnacle of performance for sports, action and wildlife shooters.
For those who bring us legendary moments from the field, we present the ultimate lens for the job. The reach to put you in the middle of the action, plus a built-in teleconverter to get even closer. The speed, versatility and accuracy of an f/2.8 aperture to ensure you don’t need a second chance. Masterpiece optics that capture intense moments with immense details. All in a balanced, lightweight, brilliantly designed lens made possible by Nikon’s Z mount. Pair it with the Z 9, and you have the most formidable sports, action and wildlife kit in Nikon history.

The speed and versatility of f/2.8.
The speed and silence of Silky Swift VCM.
Ground-breaking anti-glare performance.
Powerful optical VR gives you the edge.
Even the smallest vibrations can soften details. Nikon’s powerful in-lens optical VR compensates for vibrations—an effect equivalent to shooting at a shutter speed up to 5.5 stops* faster. When used with the Z 9, Synchro VR combines the in-lens and in-camera VR image stabilization systems for maximum results.
*Based on CIPA Standard; in NORMAL mode; this value is achieved when attached to a mirrorless camera equipped with a 35mm film size image sensor.
Immense details for intense moments.
Outstanding for video.
Built for hardworking pros.
Advanced weather sealing.
Rubber gaskets keep dust, dirt and moisture out of all moving parts, including the lens mount. The barrel is robust magnesium alloy, and an ideal balance of strength and low weight. The front and rear elements have Nikon’s nonstick Fluorine Coat, which repels oil, moisture and smudges and easily wipes clean. This is a lens built for foul weather, dusty sporting events and the road less travelled.
Perfect dustproof and waterproof performance is not guaranteed under all conditions.
Recall stored focus positions.
Brilliant. By design.
Silky Swift VCMThe Silky Swift VCM is utilized for NIKKOR Z lenses as an AF drive motor. This system simultaneously achieves higher speed, higher accuracy and quieter operation. Each of these factors far surpasses conventional systems, and as for the “quietness” specifically, drive sound is intensively suppressed to an almost-silent level. Even heavy lenses can be controlled accurately at high speed, with minimal noise or vibration, enabling users to reliably capture sharply focused images. Extremely quiet AF operation is specifically advantageous for shooting in places where silence is required and for video recording. WARNING: Do not use this product if you have a pacemaker or other medical device. The magnet or magnets in this product could cause medical devices to malfunction.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) GlassAn optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
Super ED GlassNikon has also developed Super ED glass featuring even lower dispersion properties and extremely high performance in reducing the secondary spectrum, to minimize chromatic aberration even further, as well as other lens aberrations.
Short-Wavelength Refractive LensSR is a high- and specialized-dispersion glass lens that refracts light with wavelengths shorter than that of blue. By controlling short-wavelength light, the lens is able to achieve highly precise chromatic aberration compensation so that the colours in your images are more accurately reproduced. It also allows for more flexible optical designs, which allows for compact, lighter lenses to be designed.
Fluorite Lens ElementFluorite (FL), a lightweight mono-crystal optical material, has excellent optical properties while reducing overall lens weight to improve balance and handling, especially useful in longer focal length lenses.
Vibration ReductionA Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
Meso Amorphous CoatMeso Amorphous Coat* realizes the highest anti-reflection performance in NIKKOR history. Meso Amorphous Coat provides an effect superior to that of Nano Crystal Coat for diagonal incident light, and an effect equivalent or superior to ARNEO Coat for vertical incident light. With its superb performance, ghost and flare caused by incident light from various directions are noticeably reduced, delivering clear images even under harsh conditions. *With this coating system, amorphous particles, that are even smaller than nano particles, are utilized to create even more gaps within the coating to form an ultra-fine mesoporous structure, attaining a lower refractive index. In addition, a higher-precision base coat is employed to further enhance the anti-reflection effect.
Fluorine CoatPhotographers need gear that can withstand the elements. Nikon’s fluorine coat effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt, ensuring easy removal even when they adhere to the lens surface. Nikon’s fluorine coat endures a high frequency of lens surface wiping and its anti-reflective effect also contributes to the capture of clear images.
ARNEO CoatAn anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon and used in conjunction with Nano Crystal Coat to further reduce ghost and flare effects caused by incident light entering the lens vertically. This allows for the outstandingly clear capture of images even when a light source is located within the frame.
IF LensA NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
Electromagnetic Diaphragm MechanismAn electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting
