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.

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.

So is the point of all of the teleconverter so that this lens can be called both a 400 prime and a 560 prime? With the 400 being f/2.8 and a 560 also as a true prime at f/4?
Asked by: Dave
Yes that is exactly it. With the 1.4x teleconverter you get slightly narrower angle of view but the aperture decreases by 1 stop.

Is the teleconverter removable?
Asked by: matt
The built in teleconverter on the Nikon NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S Lens cannot be removed. It can be enabled when you need a 560mm lens or disable when you only need 400mm.
