The Nikon 400mm f2.8 AF-S E FL ED VR Lens is a professional FX-format super-telephoto prime lens ideal for sports and news photographers who demand top performance. The lens boasts a professional-grade dust and moisture construction, a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture, a fast auto-focus system (AF-S) and Nikon's new Sport Vibration Reduction (VR) mode to deliver exceptional image quality, speed and accuracy. The newly designed optical construction incorporates 16 elements in 12 groups, including two fluorite and two ED elements. Using fluorite for the front two elements reduces the weight (820g lighter than its predecessor) in the front part of the lens and shifts its centre of gravity to the rear, ensuring comfortable handling and stable operation. Additional features include a professional-grade dust and moisture resistant construction, bearings in the tripod collar ring, a one-piece reversible lens hood and an integrated tripod foot that now faces the front of the lens.
The Key features
Fast super-telephoto lens
Offers 400 mm focal length and fast f/2.8 maximum aperture.
High optical performance
Two fluorite and two ED (extra-low dispersion) glass elements ensure minimal chromatic aberration. The lens boasts a drop-in filter holder and is supplied with an NC filter.
Nano Crystal Coat
Reduces ghosting and flare for greater image clarity, even in backlit situations.
Enables consistent exposures during high-speed bursts.
Vibration Reduction (VR)
With SPORT mode. VR minimises camera shake and lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to four stops slower.¹ SPORT VR mode delivers a stable viewfinder image when shooting high-speed movement, and allows a continuous shooting frame rate and release time lag similar to those that are possible when VR is turned off.
Tripod mount ring
Bearings improve durability and ensure smooth switching between horizontal and vertical orientation.
Actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality. The coating is applied to the meniscus protective glass on the front element of the lens.
Robust and light
Fluorite elements help reduce the weight of this super-telephoto lens to just 3800 g (approx.). The body boasts a professional-grade dust- and moisture-resistant construction.
Ergonomic tripod foot
Faces the front of the lens for more comfortable transportation when the lens is attached to a monopod. An anti-theft security slot keeps the lens secure.
The hood can be flipped and reversed, allowing it to remain attached to the lens during transportation.
The sturdy CT-405 trunk case comes with the lens for convenient, safe transportation.

Are you eligible for finance?
Applicants must be:
Aged 18 years or older from the application date
In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
In regular, permanent employment.
Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
Not working through disability.
Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.
Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
