Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens
Key Features
  • F-Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/4.5 to f/40
  • Four ED Elements, One Super ED Element
  • Nano Crystal & Super Integrated Coatings
Summing up several telephotos in one convenient zoom, the AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR from Nikon is a versatile lens covering portrait-length to super-telephoto focal lengths. Characterized by an advanced optical design, this lens uses one super extra-low dispersion element and four extra-low dispersion elements to noticeably reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range for improved clarity. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have also been applied to control flare and ghosting in order to increase contrast and color accuracy in bright and backlit conditions. A Silent Wave Motor AF system produces fast, near-silent focusing performance that suits both stills shooting and movie recording, which can instantly be manually overridden by simply turning the manual focus ring. Further contributing to photographing in fast-paced situations and difficult lighting, Vibration Reduction image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Overview

Summing up several telephotos in one convenient zoom, the AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR from Nikon is a versatile lens covering portrait-length to super-telephoto focal lengths. Characterized by an advanced optical design, this lens uses one super extra-low dispersion element and four extra-low dispersion elements to noticeably reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range for improved clarity. Both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have also been applied to control flare and ghosting in order to increase contrast and color accuracy in bright and backlit conditions. A Silent Wave Motor AF system produces fast, near-silent focusing performance that suits both stills shooting and movie recording, which can instantly be manually overridden by simply turning the manual focus ring. Further contributing to photographing in fast-paced situations and difficult lighting, Vibration Reduction image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops.

Portrait-length to super-telephoto zoom is designed for FX-format F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it will provide a 120-600mm equivalent focal length range.
One super extra-low dispersion element and four extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
Both a Nano Crystal Coat and a Super Integrated Coating have been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also 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.
Vibration Reduction image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by four stops to benefit shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.
Rotating tripod collar benefits working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
Compatible with optional AF-S Teleconverter TC-14, TC-17, and TC-20 teleconverters.

Will this lens fully function with a Z 6ii camera? Also, with a TC on the 6ii?
Asked by: Jim
Yes, I believe it will function very well. I used the 80-400 mm with 1.4 TC and the FTZ adapter on a Z7 body handheld on a trip to Patagonia/Antarctica. Optical performance and image stabilization were great. Resulting images have won awards and enlargements are hanging in public venues.

Hi, camera is a D-810 with the VR 80-400mm f4.5-f5.6 D ED AF and can I use the TC 17 E II teleconverter?
Asked by: Richard
The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens and the Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-17E II may be used with one another. However, do note that autofocus will not be possible when using this combination. When you use the 1.7x teleconverter on the 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens, it will become the approximate equivalent of a 136-680mm f/7.3-9.5 lens. According to the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens' instruction manual, the lens will not autofocus with this combination, even on cameras that support f/8 autofocus such as the Nikon D810 DSLR camera. As such, you would have to focus the lens manually.
