Nikon have this morning announced a new telephoto zoom, aimed squarely at sports and wildlife photographers – the Nikkor 180-400mm ƒ/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR.
It’s the first Nikkor telephoto to include a built-in 1.4x converter, accessible from an ergonomic lever on the side of the lens, increasing the focal length in a blink to 560mm ƒ/5.6.
Nikon’s proven Vibration Reduction technology gives up to 4-stops advantage, allowing for handheld shooting at slower shutter speeds.
The lens is also weather sealed and the front element has a fluorine coating to shrug off water and dirt without compromising image quality.
- 180-400mm (252-560mm with converter enabled)
- 27 elements in 9 groups (including 8 ED & 1 fluorite element)
- 40.5mm rear filter fitting
- 128 x 362.5mm
It is available from March 8th and pre-orders can be placed now. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
