• Marrying convenience with professionalism: Excellent for sports and wildlife photography, the telephoto 180 mm to super-telephoto 400 mm focal length range would come into effective use. Naturally, high-speed long telephoto lenses are an advantage for those assignments as relative high shutter speed are made possible.
The first for NIKKOR lens for Nikon SLR cameras, the AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR is a telephoto lens with a built-in 1.4x teleconverter that easily switches with a lever to extend to a focal length of 560mm.

Photographers can access controls on the lens easily, which are optimally designed according to shooting posture. Additionally, the lens body, including movable parts and other sections, is designed with dust- and drip-resistant performance, making shooting outdoors under challenging terrains possible without compromising image clarity. Fluorine coat applied to the lens also ensures high antifouling performance.
Employing a fluorite lens element as a protective glass, magnesium alloy, eight ED glass elements, the lens’ lightweight body, weighing at approximately 3,500g, also comes as an advantage as it adds comfort and operability during shooting which realises agility.
