Nikon Announces the New AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR Lens and AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E III

Photography News: Nikon Introduces a Newer and Lighter 400mm f/2.8 Lens and a 1.4x Teleconverter, Both With Fluorine Coatings -- Now Available at B&H Photo

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 14, 2014) - B&H Photo would like to share with the photography community the announcement of the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens, and the AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E III. Both are exciting additions for sports or nature photographers, or others who utilize long focal lengths. 

The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens frees professionals and passionate shooters to capture the thrill of sports, action and wildlife with staggering clarity and precision, even when shooting handheld in challenging lighting conditions. A fast f/2.8 maximum aperture paired with Nikon VR technology delivers exciting new low-light capabilities and beautiful bokeh, while a specialized diaphragm maintains consistent exposure during high-speed shooting. Pro-grade dust- and moisture-sealing and a fluorine coated front meniscus glass element protect the lens' superb NIKKOR optics on tough assignments while Nikon's advanced lens technologies give you every advantage for catching the shots that matter.

The new AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens is almost 2 lb lighter than its predecessor, and has a fluorine-coated front meniscus glass element to protect the lens's optics. The lens has pro-grade dust and moisture sealing for added protection when shooting in tough conditions. Vibration Reduction helps minimize the appearance of camera shake, while an electromagnetic diaphragm works to ensure consistent exposures while shooting at higher frame rates.  The Silent Wave Motor provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocusing, with manual override possible by spinning the lens barrel. Two fluorite elements reduce the overall weight and enhance the optical performance, while two extra-low dispersion glass elements almost fully reduce chromatic aberrations, even at f/2.8.

The Nikon AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E III 1.4x lens provides 40% more reach for your lens with just a one-stop loss of exposure, turning a 70-200mm f/2.8 into a 98-280mm f/4, and a 400mm f/2.8 into a 560mm f/4. Autofocus, metering, and VR image stabilization all remain functional while using the teleconverter. The front and rear surfaces are fluorine-coated to protect the glass, while the lens barrel provides dust and water-droplet resistance. 

Superb NIKKOR optics and Nikon lens technologies

The AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR is an advanced lens designed to draw peak potential from high-resolution Nikon D-SLRs. The lens' ultra-fast, ultra-quiet Silent Wave Motor (SWM) provides outstanding autofocus performance with seamless manual override (just spin the lens barrel). Two fluorite lens elements (FL) provide superior optical characteristics while minimizing overall weight, while two Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements nearly eliminate chromatic aberration, even at f/2.8.
