TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2022
NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S
When TIPA members looked at the field of prime telephoto lenses aimed at pro sports, wildlife, and all photographers who want to enjoy the benefits of a fast, vibration-reduction telephoto, the NIKKOR Z 400mm was a clear choice, especially when the bonus of a built-in 1.4X teleconverter for easy and instant switching to 560mm at f/4 was considered as well. The lens incorporates rubber gaskets to protect against the harmful effects of dust and moisture and is constructed with ED (extra-low dispersion), Super ED, lightweight fluorite, and SR elements for virtual elimination of chromatic/comatic aberrations and color fringing, important attributes for location work. Smooth and quiet AF is assured with the “Silky Swift” Voice Coil Motor (VCM), with full time manual override available. The NIKKOR Z 400mm also offers an impressive 5.5EV VR compensation.
