Amazing images

200-400mm super-telephoto zoom with VR

The AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 200-400mm f/4G IF-ED combines the reach and functionality of four super-telephoto prime lenses into a single compact super-telephoto zoom lens. Its broad focal length is complemented with Nikon’s VR image stabilization for enhanced low-light performance—shoot at shutter speeds up to three times slower than would otherwise be possible.

Reliable performance

Renowned NIKKOR optics and advanced Nikon lens technologies

The world's first AF-S VR super-telephoto 200-400mm zoom lens employs a host of Nikon's exclusive technologies to deliver spectacular images. Besides its two VR modes, the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 200-400mm f/4G IF-ED automatically detects when you’re panning and compensates accordingly. Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing with seamless manual override. And 4 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements minimize chromatic aberration and provide higher resolution and superior contrast.

IF Lens
IF Lens
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
Silent Wave Motor
Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
M/A

Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
Vibration Reduction
Vibration Reduction
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
