The Flexibility to Create with the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S

The lightest super-telephoto lens in its class, two supported VR modes, and uncompromised rendering capabilities – the lens gives users the versatility for hand-held shooting


Mobility with Uncompromised Performance

Encased in a lightweight and compact body, the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S is the lightest super-telephoto S-Line lens in its class1 weighing in at approximately 1,160g (excluding tripod collar) and measuring a total length of 234.5mm – allowing for increased mobility whilst shooting. Attain greater flexibility in focal length as the existing 400mm can also be extended to 560mm or 800mm when a 1.4x or 2.0x teleconverter is used respectively2. The excellent body weight distribution with its centre of gravity located at the tripod collar further let users enjoy better stability and comfort when shooting for prolonged periods.

In addition to the added stability, the lens provides outstanding Vibration Reduction (VR) performance with support for two VR modes – Normal and Sport modes, as well as Synchro VR that is available with the Z 9. The Normal mode’s performance effectively reduces blur during handheld telephoto shooting and is equivalent to a 5.5-stop3 increase in shutter speed, the most effective in the history of NIKKOR lenses. The second mode, Sports VR, which is highly acclaimed by professional photographers, is particularly effective when shooting rapid and erratic moving subjects as it enables users to track subjects easily and provides a stable viewfinder image, even with continuous high-speed shooting.

When the lens is combined with the Nikon Z 9, users enjoy a more powerful 6.0-stop with Synchro VR activation and the in-camera VR.

Making the lens ideal for situations where silence is required is its quiet and accurate autofocus (AF) with a stepping motor (STM) to reduce operational sounds, thus ensuring live subjects such as wildlife and birds are not disturbed in their natural habitat.

1 Among f/4.5 and slower lenses, including those with a focal length of 400mm, for interchangeable-lens cameras equipped with a full-frame (35mm [135] equivalent) image sensor available as of June 29, 2022. Statement based on Nikon research.

2 AF performance may deteriorate depending on the subject, brightness and focus position regardless of the camera body, causing inaccurate focus, slow focusing speed or flashing of the focus point.


3 Measured in accordance with CIPA standards with VR function set to NORMAL and zoom at the maximum telephoto position.
