Nikon NIKKOR Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S Lens
Offering super-telephoto reach in a portable design, the NIKKOR Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S, from Nikon, is a versatile zoom well-suited for sports and wildlife applications. Covering a broad telephoto range, the lens manages to remain relatively lightweight and compact, making it ideal for travel as well, and it incorporates Inner Balance technology that maintains stability when tracking moving subjects and shooting atop a gimbal head.
Optical Design
  • Featuring a combination of two Super ED and six ED glass elements, chromatic aberrations and color fringing is effectively eliminated throughout the zoom range for notable clarity and color accuracy.
  • ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats are used to prevent ghosting, reflections, and flare in order to realize improved contrast and clarity when working in strong lighting and backlit conditions. The Nano Crystal Coat controls incidental light from a diagonal direction while the ARNEO Coat controls incidental light from a vertical direction.
Autofocus and Vibration Reduction
  • Multi-focus system incorporates two separate AF drive units, which are synchronized, to deliver especially fast and accurate focusing throughout the zoom range. This system uses stepping motors, which offer impressively smooth and quiet autofocus performance that is well-suited to both stills and video applications.
  • Full-time manual focus override is also possible and an internal focusing design is used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
  • Minimum focusing distance of 2.5', along with a maximum magnification of 0.38x, benefits working with close-up subjects.
  • Vibration Reduction image stabilization helps to reduce the appearance of camera shake by approximately 5.5 stops to better enable handheld shooting in low-light situations.
Handling and Design
  • Short zoom throw rotation of just 80° permits quick changing between the 100mm to the 400mm positions.
  • Updated zoom design prevents lens creep, regardless if the lens is pointing straight up or down, without having to adjust torque or tension settings.
  • Programmable Control Ring is, by default, set to adjust manual focus, but can also be used to control aperture or exposure compensation.
  • Integrated OLED lens information panel allows you to quickly confirm aperture setting, focus distance, and depth of field figures right on the lens in both bright and dark situations.
  • Two assignable L.Fn buttons work in conjunction with camera-based Fn buttons to provide seamless points for quickly changing exposure settings and other functions.
  • Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel, along with a front fluorine coating, benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.
  • Inner Balance technology helps maintain a consistent center of gravity when shifting the zoom position, offering greater stability when tracking moving subjects using a gimbal head.
  • Rotating tripod collar offers mounting stability when shooting atop a monopod or tripod.
  • Compatible with optional Z-Teleconverter TC-1.4x and TC-2x to further extend the reach of this lens.
Chiaro 77mm 95-UVAT UV Filter

The 77mm 95-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highly-rated protective UV filters with 95% light transmission. It’s useful for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for great image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 95% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

95% Light Transmission
Protect your lens while maintaining optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass, Chiaro offers a 95% transmission rate. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Polished Optical Glass
Highly-polished glass is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is polished for flatness that ensures great optical clarity.
Multi-Coating
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top Knurling
Top knurling is designed to offer a firm grip on the filter when you're attaching or removing it.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

Does it have memory (focus point recall) function?
Asked by: Todd
Staff member Stephen's Nov. 1, 2021 reply needs to be updated as it is now obsolete (wrong) due to recent firmware updates to Z cameras. For the Z7 (which I own), a new addendum to the latest firmware says this: "You can save the current focus position by assigning 'Save focus position' to 'Lens Fn button' and then pressing and holding the lens 'Fn' button. The saved position can be instantly restored by assigning 'Recall focus position' to 'Lens Fn2 button' and pressing the lens 'Fn2' button (memory recall)." I have programmed my Z7 this way and with my 100-400 lens I have verified it works as described.

Since no lens case is included, does anybody have a recommendation for a 3rd party case ideally with a shoulder strap?
Asked by: Carol
I found the LowePro Lens Case 11x26 to be a great fit. Although the interior diameter is a little snug with both the reversed lens hood and the Kirk LP-70 Lens Foot attached, the vertical fit is perfect. To me, the snug diameter was preferable to the vertical gap the 13x32 leaves. If you store the lens with the foot but without the hood the fit is perfect.

How does it compare to 70-200 2.8s with 2x ...

How does it compare to 70-200 2.8s with 2x teleconverter( which translates to 140-400 5.6)?
Asked by: Pawel
The performance of the 70-200 f/2.8 with the 2X teleconverter is excellent. It honestly depends on the type of photography you're doing. The autofocus is pretty fast and not limited like it used to be with these 2X extenders. The image quality is a little softer than using the 70-200 without a converter but that's normal. If you find yourself needing the long range consistently, it's a better choice to just buy the 100-400. However, the 70-200 with the 2x converter is a great combo and serves to be more flexible than just having the 100-400.
