    Awesome S Glass

    Posted by George Tran on January 26, 2024

    I love Nikon 35mm lenses and more with this Z 100-400mm S glass lens which pairs with my Z9. It is fast AF, very good color rendering and good for handheld. I chose this lens over its cousin 400mm f4.5 due to its versatility. However, I may get the 400mm f4.5 S later for more light.

    Best New Z Glass for Antarctica

    Posted by Patrick Clark on January 14, 2024

    I purchased a Nikon Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 to take to Antarctica. I am here, now, really, really appreciating the quality and easy functioning of this versatile zoom lens. When shooting from the ship, the landscape photo composition choices are perfect. As a walkabout lens on shore landings, it is just what I thought I would need. Field changing lenses is not a good idea in this environment. The close focusing ability allows creativity. The zoom range enables shots other photographers are just plain unable to capture. This Z 100-400mm has been a major plus on our adventure trip to Theo and of ice, penguins, seals, whales, and more. I highly recommend this lens.

    My most used lens

    Posted by Chris Murray on December 19, 2023

    I've owned a 100-400 on other systems and it was always my most used lens. This lens is probably the best optically performing out of all of the 100-400's i've used, and its close focusing capabilities surprised and continue to delight me. This lens is fast to focus, accurate, light weight.

    THIS LENS FITS THE BILL

    Posted by Tom Stilwell on November 3, 2023

    While I have only owned this lens for a short period of time, it's fast becoming my favorite. I walk through a wildlife conservation area pretty much every day. And I see everything from small birds to large mammals. The features that I was looking for light weight, rugged build, weather resistant, close focusing, and image quality. They are all there. This lens defiantly fits the bill. I could not be more happy with a purchase.

    A Versatile, Powerful Zoom That's Easy To Maneuver

    Posted by Anonymous on October 31, 2023

    It's still a very new lens to me, but it's performed wonderfully so far. Moving up from the 70-300mm, I liked the idea of extra focal reach, but was worried about it being heavier and difficult to maneuver. However, it's a compact design with a reasonable weight that's not cumbersome. It's also easy to zoom in-out as you can almost fully open and close the zoom with one one twist of the wrist, maybe to 80%, or more, of it's capacity.

    Excellent Wildlife and Landscape Lens

    Posted by Anonymous on October 26, 2023

    Excellent build quality, sharp throughout the range, fast focusing, and works very well with the Nikkor Z 1.4tc.Recently switched from Canon RF system as I prefer the glass that Nikon has to offer. Hope to add a 600mm PF and a wide angle zoom soon.
