Nikon 180-400mm f4E AF-S NIKKOR TC1.4 FL ED VR Lens
Telephoto versatility. Extended.
From stadium to mountainside, the AF-S NIKKOR 180–400mm f/4E TC1.4 lets you own every advantage out in the field. A solid, well-positioned lever ensures easy, comfortable activation of the teleconverter. Photographers can increase the 180–400mm (f/4) focal-length range to 560 mm (f/5.6) without adjusting their hold on the camera, or taking their eye away from the viewfinder.
The advanced optical design ensures photographers can extend their reach without compromising sharpness. And Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) allows a four-stop advantage, even with the teleconverter engaged. SPORT VR reliably tracks fast-moving subjects, and advanced autofocus ensures subject-acquisition performance is superb. Ergonomic advantages include the fact that typical zoom- and focus-ring positions have been reversed for more balanced handling, and a fluorite lens element helps keep the weight down.
Own every advantage
When you’ll go to any lengths to get the shot, you want a lens that does the same. Gain up to 160 mm more reach the instant the action demands it.
Always sharp. Always steady. You can extend the 180–400mm (f/4) focal length range to 560 mm (f/5.6) without adjusting your hold on the camera. A solid, well-positioned lever lets you activate the teleconverter with your finger, which is ideal when you want to keep your eye to the viewfinder. The closest focus distance is 2 m across the focal length range.
Sharp at any length
Benefit from edge-to-edge sharpness and minimal light fall-off throughout the zoom range, even when shooting wide open.
The superior resolving power of this lens ensures consistently superb results. A fluorite element enables high transmission rates with minimal chromatic aberration. Eight ED glass elements ensure images with vivid colour and perfectly rendered contrast all the way to the edge of the frame. And Nikon’s antireflective Nano Crystal Coat ensures clear images with minimal flare and ghosting, even in backlit conditions.
Steady at speed
Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) gives you a four-stop advantage, even with the teleconverter activated. SPORT VR reliably tracks fast-moving subjects.
Shoot without worrying about the effects of camera shake. VR technology activates the instant you press the shutter halfway and enables shooting speeds up to four stops slower than otherwise possible.* SPORT VR mode delivers a more stable viewfinder image, which is helpful when shooting exceptionally fast action, or when panning.
When you’re working down to the wire or shooting long hours, Nikon’s renowned ergonomics can make all the difference.
Typical zoom- and focus-ring positions are reversed for more balanced handling. With the zoom ring positioned towards the front of the barrel, directly below your hand, it’s easier to maintain a steady posture when zooming. Both the zoom and focus rings boast a knurled covering that enables a firm grip for smooth control. The tripod collar ring includes bearings to ensure smooth switching between horizontal and vertical orientations. And the integrated tripod foot faces the front of the lens for optimum balance and more comfortable transportation when the lens is attached to a tripod.
From the ski slope to the brown bear’s favourite fishing spots, this fully weather-sealed lens excels in tough outdoor environments.
Every movable part of the lens barrel is sealed to protect from dust and water droplets. A fluorine coating actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality. A fluorite lens element helps keep the weight down. And because you’ll have to change lenses in the field far less frequently, your Nikon DSLR’s image sensor gets exposed to the elements far less often too.
Always on track
This lens responds swiftly and precisely to autofocus changes. An electromagnetic diaphragm ensures precise exposures at high frame rates.
Advanced AF tracking keeps pace with fast-moving subjects—even when they’re moving erratically, at random speeds, or approaching the camera quickly. Subject-acquisition performance is superb, even in the peripheral areas of the frame. The electromagnetic diaphragm ensures fast automatic exposure control, and maximum accuracy.
