Professional FX-format 400 mm super telephoto lens. With fast f/2.8 maximum aperture and advanced optical formula, this lens is ideal for sports and news photographers who demand peak performance.
Crafted to deliver precision at any speed, this is the first NIKKOR super-telephoto to feature Nikon’s SPORT Vibration Reduction (VR) mode. Ideal when tracking fast action, SPORT mode delivers a stable viewfinder image with virtually no loss of the maximum frame rates that are possible when VR is turned off. Two fluorite lens elements enhance optical performance and help reduce weight for balanced handling. Fluorine coating actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality.
