The Nikon Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S is a versatile super-telephoto zoom for Nikon Z-mount cameras. Key features include:

  • Only for Nikon Z-mount cameras

  • Excellent for sports and wildlife photography

  • Up to 5.5 stops of vibration reduction

  • Dual-motor autofocus system; full-time manual focusing

Nikon Z System. The Nikon Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S was designed specifically for cameras in Nikon’s full-frame Z-mount system. Z-mount lenses only work with Z-mount cameras, and Z-mount cameras are only natively compatible with Z-mount lenses.

Fast-Aperture Super-Telephoto Zoom. The 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S provides a broad super-telephoto focal range, making it perfect for sports and wildlife photographers. Its f/4.5-5.6 variable aperture means it’s not the best for low light, but it’ll work fine for outdoor shooting conditions. While this lens was designed for FX-format cameras, you can also use it with DX-format cameras on which it’ll provide a 150-600mm equivalent focal-length range.

Vibration Reduction. The built-in vibration reduction provides up to 5.5 stops of correction for minimizing camera shake at slower shutter speeds and producing sharper results when shooting hand-held in low light.

Multi-Focus Autofocus System. This lens’s multi-focus system incorporates two synchronized autofocus drive units to give you fast, accurate performance throughout the zoom range. This system’s stepping motors provide smooth, nearly silent performance that’s particularly suited to video applications. You also get full-time manual focusing for precision adjustments, while the internal-focusing design means that the lens maintains its length during focusing.

Advanced Optics. The 100-400mm’s 20-group/25-element optical system includes 6 extra-low dispersion elements and 2 super extra-low dispersion elements, which combine to promote sharpness and color rendering while limiting chromatic aberrations. ARNEO and Nano Crystal coatings help keep ghosting, reflections, and flares at bay.

Durable Build. This lens’s durable, moisture-resistant construction means you can use it in adverse conditions without worry. The exposed elements have a fluorine coating to protect them from debris and smearing. A rotating tripod collar ensures stability when you mount the lens on a tripod or monopod, and Inner Balance tech helps maintain a consistent center of gravity when shifting the zoom position. A built-in OLED information panel lets you quickly verify focus distance, depth-of-field figures, and aperture setting right on the lens.

Intuitive Controls. A programmable control ring lets you adjust manual focus, aperture, or exposure compensation, and two assignable L.Fn buttons work in conjunction with cameras’ Fn buttons to let you quickly and seamlessly change exposure settings and other functions.

Teleconverter Compatible. The 100-400 is compatible with the Nikon Z TC-1.4x and TC-2x Teleconverters, which will further extend the lens’s reach. Each teleconverter is available as a separate rental item.
