Is the teleconverter an option that can be ...

Is the teleconverter an option that can be utilized to bring the effective focal length to 560mm, or is it fixed in place, bringing what would have otherwise been a roughly 285mm lenses up to an effective 400mm?
Asked by: Gabe
It will be a selectable option letting you change between 400mm and 560mm effective focal lengths. This is similar to their AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR lens that had a built-in 1.4x teleconverter as well.

Can this be hand-held with Z8 for bird photography? Also, is the incl. collar and foot identical to that on the 400mm f4.5 S?
Asked by: Steven
Nikon Z8 combine with Nikon NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S Lens has a total weight of 8.5LB. If you are going to be shooting for multiple ours a monopod or tripod system can be ideal to help hold and stabilize your camera equipment. The foot on Nikon NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S Lens is completely different than the foot on the Nikon NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S Lens. The dimensions for the foot on the f/2.8 lens are 120x40x20mm with 4 screws connecting it to the lens. The f/4 lens hasa quick release foot, its dimensions are 70 x31 x 8mm

Can a drop-in solar filter be used on the 400mm ...

Can a drop-in solar filter be used on the 400mm f2.8? I'm curious for shooting the annular eclipse.
Asked by: David
It cannot. The drop in filter in the Nikon NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S Lens is in the back of the lens. A solar filter must be placed in the front of the lens. If you only place the solar filter in the back, the sun will heat up the lens and it can melt the aperture blades. You would need a solar filter made for telescopes that goes in the front of the lens. I don't have the exact measurement of the diameter of this lens, but once you measure the diameter, there are telescope solar filters that you can place in the front like this one: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1348156-REG Look in the bottom of the Overview tab and it will list what lens diameter it will fit. You can also measure the diameter of the lens hood and place it over the lens hood.

Is the drop-in clear filter included with the lens? All of the previous Nikon pro lenses I've bought do include that filter but I don't see it in the "in the box" list. Thanks!
Asked by: Cissy
My lens arrived today and I can confirm the lens does NOT come with a filter. The holder is empty. Attaching a 46mm NC may be a good idea to deter any dust or rain from getting to the rear element if you're changing lenses quickly under adverse conditions.
