Nikon has added a new full-frame super-telephoto prime lens with a built-in teleconverter to its line-up of lenses available in the Nikon Z mount. The 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S prime lens has a long reach already but when you activate the built-in 1.4x teleconverter, the focal length of the lens expands to 560mm. 

The Nikkor Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S will be available in Spring 2022 with an RRP of £13,499. 

More information on the new lens can be found below.

Nikon is pleased to announce a new full-frame super-telephoto prime lens with a built-in teleconverter - the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S. With its fast f/2.8 aperture and phenomenal AF performance, this is a formidable lens for sports, wildlife, and nature photography. Image quality is exceptional whether shooting at 400 mm, or at 560 mm with the built-in 1.4x teleconverter activated.

The NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S is the first Z lens to adopt Nikon’s new Silky Swift Voice Coil Motor (VCM) focusing system with optical ABS encoder: autofocus is faster and quieter, with spot-on subject acquisition and tracking. It’s also the first Z lens to feature Nikon’s new Meso Amorphous Coat, which offers the highest anti-reflection performance in NIKKOR history. This new coating employs particles smaller than nanoparticles to confer remarkable control over ghosting and flare: clarity is pitch-perfect, even if shooting scenes with multiple direct light sources in the frame.

Built to give photographers every advantage out in the field, the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S also boasts an impressively lightweight build, which makes this super-telephoto lens easier to handle. Tough and perfectly balanced, the lens is fully sealed around all moving parts and its centre of gravity is towards the rear for more stable operation. Controls can be customised for the perfect setup in any situation, including by assigning functions to the lens’ FN ring.

Rob Harmon, Senior Commercial Lead, Nikon Northern Europe says: "This is the first S-line super-telephoto prime to join the NIKKOR Z family and it opens up new possibilities for pro sports, wildlife, and nature photographers. It’s packed with new, innovative technology that takes focusing, image clarity, and adaptability to the next level. Whatever it takes to get the shot, this lens keeps up."

Nikkor Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S Key Features:

  • Built-in 1.4x teleconverter: a flick of a switch on the right side of the lens is all it takes to engage the teleconverter and extend the reach of this lens to 560 mm.
  • Unwavering AF: Silky Swift VCM focusing system with optical ABS encoder delivers phenomenally fast autofocus with spot-on subject acquisition and tracking.
  • Powerful image quality: f/2.8 maximum aperture and beautifully rounded bokeh.
  • In-lens Vibration Reduction: gives a 5.5-stop advantage even when shooting with the built-in teleconverter activated, Synchro VR is available when this lens is paired with the Z 9.
  • Meso Amorphous Coat: class-leading anti-reflective coating. Combats ghosting and flare by eliminating incidental light coming from both diagonal and vertical directions.
  • Exquisite detail: Nikon’s ED, Super ED, and SR glass elements counter chromatic aberrations.
  • Tough: sealing around all moving parts keeps dust and moisture at bay, and Nikon’s fluorine coating protects the front element.1
