The Nikon 400mm f/2.8E FL ED AF-S VR

The Nikon 400mm f/2.8E AF-S FL ED VR is a pro-grade supertele and update to the popular Nikon 400mm f/2.8G AF-S VR. Key features include:

Designed for Sports. The long reach and fast f/2.8 aperture are perfect for sports and action photography, allowing you to freeze fast-moving subjects even in low light. The wide aperture also enables images with a very shallow depth of field, resulting in great subject/background separation.

Redesigned Build & Optics. The most notable change from its predecessor is the strict diet. Nikon managed to shave 1.72 lbs off by switching to a magnesium alloy die-cast lens barrel. Additionally, two fluorite and two ED lens elements reduce chromatic aberrations while ensuring overall image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity. As expected, you’re still getting pro-grade dust and moisture weather-sealing for peace of mind in less than ideal conditions.

Advanced VR. The in-lens Vibration Reduction provides up to four stops of correction for shooting in low light. Combined with the weight reduction, this makes the 400mm f/2.8E AF-S FL ED VR truly hand-holdable. There’s a dedicated VR Sport Mode that recognizes panning motion to provide accurate compensation for camera shake.

Silent Wave AF Motor. The Silent Wave Motor autofocus mechanism provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance. The internal focusing design retains the overall lens length during operation while contributing to a lighter overall weight. Full-time manual-focus override is as simple as rotating the focus ring at any time.

Specialized Electromagnetic Diaphragm. As first seen in the Nikon 800mm f/5.6E FL ED AF-S VR, the electromagnetic diaphragm ensures consistent exposures when shooting at high frame rates.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
