Nikon 200-400mm f/4.0 Overview
Covering an impressive range of telephoto focal lengths, the AF-S NIKKOR 200-400mm f/4G ED VR II from Nikon is a versatile zoom well-suited for sports and wildlife shooting. A constant f/4 maximum aperture affords consistent illumination throughout the zoom range and this relatively bright design also offers increased control over depth of field. An advanced optical design, which includes four extra-low dispersion elements, produces a highly corrected image quality that is void of chromatic aberrations and color fringing for notable clarity and color accuracy. Additionally, both a Nano Crystal Coat and a Super Integrated Coating have been applied to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast in backlit and harsh lighting conditions. Complementing the optics, this lens also sports a Silent Wave Motor for fast and accurate autofocus along with VR II image stabilization to minimize the appearance of camera shake by three stops.
