Nikon Middle East has launched the new AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR today. The AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR is a super-telephoto zoom lens employing a built-in 1.4x teleconverter. The lens covers a broad range of focal length and is compatible with both FX- and DX- formats. It covers the 180-400mm focal-length range in FX-format and extends to 252-560mm when using the built-in teleconverter.
“Harnessing the built-in teleconverter on top of Nikon’s super-telephoto zoom lens, the new AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR is another first in the constant technology advancement for our NIKKOR range of lenses. With the combination of optical innovation, superior agility and operability to meet the demands of photography on site at sporting events or in the wild, we seek to empower professionals and advanced amateurs alike to expand their view of the world and uncover new imaging possibilities,” says Narendra Menon, Managing Director, Nikon Middle East FZE.
The new lens is designed for subject-acquisition performance realised with further improved autofocus (AF) performance that utilises an enhanced drive control algorithm of the AF motor, and a Vibration Reduction (VR) effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster. Keeping images sharp and vibrant, the use of Nano Crystal Coat and other anti-reflective coatings also helps suppresses ghosting and flare.
