The lens also includes Nikon's vibration reduction (VR) technology, which offers 5 stops of image stabilisation at 400mm, and up to 5.5 stops using Nikon's Synchro VR technology when paired with select Nikon cameras, including the Z8 and Z9, that feature in-body stabilisation. Additionally, a stepping motor powers the AF, and manual focus includes support for a linear focus response.

The lens weighs 725g, and is 85mm in diameter and 142mm long in its closed form. It's also dust and drip-resistant.

The Nikkor Z 28-400mm F4-8 VR is available for pre-order now, and will set you back $2,199. You can find out more on the Nikon website.
