AF-S Nikkor 200-400mm F4G ED VR II is an FX-format compatible telephoto zoom lens offering Nikon’s exclusive support for focal lengths from 200 mm to the super telephoto 400 mm. This is the successor to the AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 200-400mm f/4G IF-ED, offering improvements in performance and function. With a Nano Crystal Coat, it significantly reduces ghost and flare combined with four ED glass elements which minimizes chromatic aberration for higher optical performance. The built-in vibration reduction (VR) offers less camera shake giving a shutter speed increase equivalent to 3.0 stops. This lens offers three focus modes - A/M, M/A and M. Its fixed aperture of f/4 renders beautiful background blur and lets you preserve an exposure across the whole focal range. It is compatible with APS-C and Full Frame Sensor DSLR Cameras.

Stellar NIKKOR optics and advanced Nikon lens technologies. The AF-S NIKKOR 200-400mm f/4G ED VR II is an advanced lens designed to meet the demands of today’s professionals. Nano Crystal Coat (N) reduces ghosting and flare. 4 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements offer superior sharpness, contrast and color correction, even at f/4. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing with seamless manual focus override. In even the most challenging situations, you’ll deliver brilliant images.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
A/M stands for Auto-Priority Manual Mode. This mode also enables an easy transition from autofocus to manual during AF operation. However, mode switch sensitivity has been altered to reduce the possibility of sudden unintentional switching to manual focus while shooting.
Nano Crystal Coat
An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat uses ultrafine, nano-sized* crystal particles to eliminate reflections inside the lens throughout the spectrum of visible light waves (380 to 780 nm) in ways that far exceed the limits of conventional antireflection coating systems. Nano Crystal Coat not only solves ghost effects caused by red light, which was incredibly difficult for previous systems. It also effectively reduces ghost and flare effects caused by light entering the lens diagonally. The result: clearer images.
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
