Unlock Your Creative Potential

The Nikon NIKKOR Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S is the first super-telephoto lens in the NIKKOR Z range. Lighter than traditional lenses in this category, it offers superior optical performance and operability. With its magnificent engineering, you can unlock your creative potential and capture stunning photos.

Seize the Moment Near or Far

With the longest focal length available in the current NIKKOR Z lens line-up from 100mm to 400mm, you can capture anything from high-speed motor races to afar birds in flight to close-up images of magnificent flora and animals. With the Z Teleconverter TC-1.4x and Z Teleconverter TC-2.0x, you can get even closer to your subjects and increase your focal distance to 560mm and 800mm, respectively, while keeping great quality.

Precise Autofocus Performance

When combined with the Nikon Z 9's "Animal" (birds included) and "Vehicle" AF subject detection modes, you can preserve unpredictable and fleeting movements with enhanced precision on birds, automobiles, trains, and aircraft.

Unrivalled Optical Performance

With Extra-low Dispersion (ED and Super ED) lens elements that minimize chromatic aberrations while allowing for minimum colour bleed, you can get crisp and clear images from corner to corner. Even in the presence of a bright light source, such as stadium lights, Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat further, diminish ghost and flare effects.

0.38x Magnification

With a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.38x and the shortest minimum focus distance in its class, the Nikon Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S Lens, can effortlessly capture not just distant images, but also close-up ones, such as flowers or insects.

5.5 Stops Image Stabiliser

With Vibration Reduction (VR) performance that compensates up to 5.5 stops, you can focus, frame, and shoot even at slower shutter speeds. Take things to the next level with VR sport mode, which allows you to photograph subjects that are moving unpredictably - ideal for capturing scenarios like football players on a pitch. When combined with the superior in-body 5-axis VR image stabilisation on a Z series FX-format camera, the Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S lens reduces blur and expands imaging possibilities.

Incredible Handling

Remove the need to continuously alter your hands' position on the lens barrel with the recently designed Inner Balance Technology, which maintains a steady centre of gravity when zooming in and out for minimal disruptions. With no torque adjusting ring, the lens barrel also minimises unintentional retraction, commonly known as lens creeping, which is especially useful when shooting upwards to photograph birds or planes.

Extremely Lightweight

The lens has the shortest rotation angle in its class, allowing for faster zooming, making it ideal for capturing fast-moving objects during athletic events or in wildlife scenarios. The Nikon NIKKOR Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S lens is the lightest in its class, weighing just 1.355kg. It is ideal for photographers operating in the field.

Rugged Design

A seal and rubber gasket on the NIKKOR Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S lens mount keep external pollutants from entering the lens and allow it to survive unexpected weather conditions. A fluorine coating on the surface of the lens prevents particles from attaching to the glass and makes cleaning easier, resulting in improved usage and overall longevity.

Smooth from Scene to Scene

The Nikon Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S lens is built with video in mind and is intended to provide an excellent video shooting experience. With the use of a stepping motor (STM) and a click-less control ring, you can enjoy fewer noise interruptions while video recording. Record natural-looking footage with a design that reduces focus breathing since the angle of view does not vary when focus pulling, and improve focus and brightness management with a smooth functioning control ring.
