Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR Lens Review


Nikon AF S NIKKOR 400mm F2

Have you recently won the lottery? Do you like to shoot sports? Nikon's latest flagship 400mm f/2.8 may be for you then. The price of over £10,000 means only lottery winners and large news agencies may be able to justify the cost. As you might expect from a super-telephoto lens intended for daily professional use, it sports weather sealing and Nikon's Vibration Reduction technology, which now includes a 'sports' mode that will detect panning. Nikon's Nano-Crystal coatings have also been applied to lens surfaces to help suppress flare and ghosting along with a fluorine coating to the front element, which is designed to repel dirt and water. Those with a keen eye will also notice that the denomination for the mount isn't a 'D', or a 'G' as found on other Nikon autofocus lenses, but instead this is an 'E' lens. This is because this lens sports an electronic diaphragm, which should retain accurate exposures when shooting at high frame rates. In this review, we'll see how this lens performs.
