    Prime image quality.

    Sharpness.

    Super ED, ED and SR glass elements virtually eliminate chromatic aberration and color fringing.

    Clarity.

    Point-light sources are rendered sharp.

    Coverage.

    Outstanding resolution that extends all the way to the frame edges with minimal vignetting.

    Bokeh beyond f/4.5.

    The optical design of the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S is optimized for a smooth bokeh effect that enhances the natural compression of 400mm.

    S-Line. Premium optics.

    The NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S bears the S-Line designation, reserved for premium NIKKOR Z lenses with the most advanced optics, superior resolution, beautiful bokeh, robust weather sealing and precision design.

    Up to 6.0 stops of VR.

    Extraordinary built-in optical VR achieves an effect of shooting up to 6.0 stops* faster on a camera that supports Synchro VR and 5.5 stops* faster on all other Z cameras. Drag the shutter with confidence for smooth panning shots. *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.

    Quick. Quiet. Accurate.

    Autofocus is powered by Nikon's STM stepping motor, a highly efficient type of motor that moves in precise intervals at remarkable speed and in near silence, ideal for video and capturing skittish wildlife.

    Outstanding balance + handling.

    Designed for on-the-go handheld shooting, the lens' center of gravity is closer to the camera body. This makes it easier to bring the camera to your eye, acquire your subject and fluidly track it.

    Pairs great with Z teleconverters.

    The lens becomes a 560mm f/6.3 lens with the Z Teleconverter TC-1.4x or an 800mm f/9 lens with the Z Teleconverter TC-2.0x.

    Tight compositions with DX Crop Mode.

    Mimics the field of view of a 600mm lens for a closer framing of your subject.

    Advanced weather sealing.

    Rubber gaskets keep dust, dirt and moisture out of moving parts, including the lens mount. The front element has Nikon’s nonstick Fluorine Coat, which repels oil, moisture and smudges and easily wipes clean.

    Nano Crystal Coat blocks flare.

    Shoot into harsh backlighting with virtually no internal reflections, glare or cross-lighting. Capture sharp, high contrast images at the most challenging times of day.

    Recall stored focus positions.

    Save a focus position with the Memory Set button. As your subject approaches the decisive moment, instantly snap back to that saved position using the Fn or Fn2 buttons.

    Convenient. Screw-on filters.

    Uses standard 95mm threaded circular filters.

    Make it yours. Control ring.

    Smooth, precise and clickless. Manually adjust aperture, ISO or exposure compensation.

    Fine tune. Manual focus ring.

    Seamlessly override the AF system with smooth, accurate adjustments.

    Out of the way. Quick-release tripod foot.

    Rotate the lens from landscape to portrait. Quickly release the foot for handheld shooting.

    Secure. Kensington slot.

    Prevents theft in remote shooting situations.

    Set boundaries. Focus limit.

    Activate to ignore foreground elements closer than 6 meters.

    Shortcut. L-Fn buttons.

    Map them to subject tracking, AF Lock, image playback and more. For convenient reach, L-Fn2 is available from four separate locations around the lens barrel.
