Nikon Z 400mm f4.5 VR S Review (CameraLabs)

Thomas has posted a full review of the newly announced Nikon NIKKOR Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S lens (B&H/ Adorama) at the CameraLabs.

Here is the verdict, ” Nikon Z 400mm F4.5 VR S lens is a telephoto prime lens which is relatively compact and comes at an unrivalled low weight of only 1.2kg. It turned out to be a very good performer: resolution across the full frame is very good even wide open from infinity down to minimum object distance with colour aberrations, coma, and field curvature practically non-existent. And its optical image stabilization working together with the IBIS of any full-frame Z camera body proved to be very effective giving the lens a 5 stop boost in handhold-ability. It is also equipped with all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a professional Z-Nikkor plus a dedicated memory set button to save focus positions, but no OLED display...”
