Nikon is Creating Z-Mount 400mm f/2.8 with Constructed-In 1.4x Teleconverter


Nikon has introduced that it’s growing a brand new 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S prime lens with a built-in 1.4x teleconverter for Nikon Z-mount, which would be the first super-telephoto lens made for Nikon’s mirrorless system. The brand new Nikkor Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S prime lens will belong to the S-Line of Nikon Z Lenses that the corporate states “pursues the final word in optical efficiency.” The super-zoom prime lens will function a built-in 1.4x teleconverter and a brand new coating that Nikon guarantees will ship the very best high quality anti-reflection efficiency in Nikkor lens historical past. The corporate says the lens can have the flexibility render extremely practical and high-resolution coloration whereas additionally offering what Nikon describes as a good looking and easy bokeh sample. The corporate additionally says this lens can be very helpful for motion, sports activities, and wildlife photographers, in addition to being fairly helpful for videographers who goal to seize footage of the identical genres. On the time of publication, PetaPixel was not offered particular particulars on this new coating, the anticipated value, nor when the lens is anticipated to return to market. The truth is, aside from the included picture and the few notes above, Nikon offered scant little details about the lens. If the period of time it took Nikon to go from asserting the event of the Z9 to really absolutely unveiling the digicam is any indication of wait time, nonetheless, it can doubtless be a number of months earlier than extra is revealed. On that word, the present components scarcity and world provide chain disruptions are prone to delay any new product even additional, so it’s protected to imagine the lens gained’t be obtainable till 2022.
The newest 400mm f/2.8 that Nikon has produced could be the AF-S Nikkor 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR Lens which was initially launched in 2014. It doesn’t embrace a built-in teleconverter and the outside of the lens seems to be considerably completely different from the picture offered of the brand new mirrorless 400mm f/2.8, so it’s doubtless protected to imagine that Nikon has redesigned or modified the optical system. In that case, that will be a departure from Canon’s selection to easily construct in an EF to RF mount adapter into its newest 400mm lens. there isn’t actually any indication that Canon’s selection made an inferior lens, however the selection did add a little bit of size to the lens that would have in all probability been averted if Canon had chosen to vary the optical system. In Canon’s protection, its selection did permit it to launch the optic a lot sooner than it seems it can take Nikon to provide its new one.
