Our Take on the AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR:
The constant f/4 maximum aperture of this lens is a plus, hence you can experience constant illumination all-through the zoom range when the teleconverter is not in position. When you engage the 1.4x teleconverter, the maximum aperture stands at f/5.6. With one fluorite element as well as eight extra-low dispersion glass elements in its optical design, you can be confident of flawless reduction of chromatic aberrations and color fringing to guarantee color precision and clarity. There is a focus range limiter that ensures the constriction of focus mechanisms to a 19.7' to infinity range so that there can be swift focusing effectiveness.
Its elements come with Nano Crystal Coat as well as Super Integrated Coating to reduce surface and interior reflections. This helps in lowering lens flare as well as ghosting to achieve high-fidelity pictures. You will like its Vibration Reduction image stabilization that helps in reducing the effect of camera shake for a maximum of four shutter speed stops. Hence, you won’t have issues using this lens in areas with poor lighting conditions. There is also a Sport Mode, which makes it easier for you to shoot in fast-paced circumstances.
What’s more, this lens comes with the Silent Wave Motor that makes accurate, fast, and noiseless autofocus a reality, as well as full-time manual focus override. With its interior focusing design, you can be certain of the optimum maintenance of the total length of the lens during operations so that quick focusing speed can be achieved.
