New Nikon 200-400mm Rumoured to Be Coming End of 2017
Ok everyone, fasten your seatbelts. This is a big one. Nikon is rumoured to be bringing out a new 200-400mm f/4 lens. Boom!
The Nikon 200-400mm f/4 VR II lens that currently exists is legendary as far as Nikon telephotos go. In fact, the whole 200-400mm concept across both Canon and Nikon brands is favoured by the majority wildlife photographers as the ideal lens for capturing wildlife on camera.
I have one myself, and I am pretty excited whilst writing up this rumour. For a long time I’ve been jealous of Canon’s 200-400m with its 1.4x extender built-in. Having tested it out at a photography show last year, I loved the ability to flick a switch and have my camera’s reach boosted.
But if this tip off is true, Nikon users may have the same thing available to them at the end of 2017. It’s long overdue, that’s for sure – the current model was released back in 2010.
The new lens should also have a fluorite element which, combined with the expected extreme image quality, will boost the price tag sky high. Sky high to the level of £10,000 or more, no doubt, to match that of the Canon 200-400mm.
