Nikon unveils 180-400mm telephoto zoom with built-in 1.4x extender

Nikon's new 180-400mm f/4 lens gets a built-in 1.4x teleconverter

Mount it to a crop sensor DX-format camera, and the lens is the equivalent to a 270-600mm lens normally and 378-840mm lens with the teleconverter engaged. In addition, the AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR is the first NIKKOR lens for Nikon SLR cameras to be equipped with a teleconverter.

Built-in 1.4x teleconverter: the 180-400 mm (f/4) focal-length range extends up to 560 mm (f/5.6).

The AF-S Nikkor 180-400mm F4E TC1.4 FL ED VR also now employs a fluorite element, which Nikon says improves balance and reduces weight. As the name reflects, the lens has a focal length of 180-400mm but its built-in 1.4x teleconverter can extend the focal range to 252-560mm when connected to a full-frame camera. Operation that does not interrupt or interfere with shooting has been taken into consideration with the design of the lens. The lens also features a new ball-bearing tripod collar ring that is designed to create a seamless transition from shooting horizontal to vertical composition. Whats more, the lens demonstrates superior agility with a weight of approximately 3,500 g/7 lb 11.4 oz, even with its built-in teleconverter, as well as superior dust- and drip-resistance and dirt repellency. Compared to the earlier Nikkor 200-400mm, the 180-400mm doubles the amount of extra low-dispersion elements. A Nano Crystal coating cuts back on ghosting and flare.

Research Ratings: MGM Resorts International (MGM), Electronics for Imaging, Inc. (EFII)
Following the completion of the transaction, the director now directly owns 27,081 shares in the company, valued at $899,901.63. The investor is now holding $21.04 million shares due in part to a decrease of 236400 new shares in their portfolio.

With fast-paced subjects in mind, Nikon enhanced the autofocus tracking algorithm to keep up with faster subjects, a feature that the company says works best paired with bodies with the 153-point autofocus system like the D5, D500 or D850. Priced at a whopping £10,999 / €12,400 / $12,399, the Nikon 80-400mm f/4 promises edge-to-edge sharpness throughout the zoom range, even when shooting wide open, plus built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) which offers a four-stop advantage. The VR modes include SPORT mode that enables photography of sporting events and other moving subjects with a stable viewfinder image.

Aiming to give high functionality to sports and wildlife photographers, Nikon has launched a new AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR lens at CES 2018. Specifications and equipment are subject to change without any notice or obligation on the part of the manufacturer.
