NIKON AF-S NIKKOR 180-400MM Comes with Inbuilt TeleConverter
The new lens features a built in 1.4x teleconverter, a constant f/4 aperture across the focal range, and onboard VR to name just a few of the plethora of features. The inbuilt teleconverter have various advantages over the external teleconverters. You can engage the 1.4X teleconverter and increase focal length to 560mm, f/5.6.
On a DX camera like the ultra-fast D500, this is an 840mm equivalent angle of view. The teleconverter switch can be comfortably operated by most using a right-hand finger without releasing the camera grip or taking an eye off the viewfinder. Since it’s integrated into the lens, the teleconverter maximizes light transmission to the sensor with very little falloff for tack-sharp images.

The AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR draws peak performance from the 153-point AF system in recent Nikon DSLRs like the D5, D850 and D500. The sensors at the outer areas of the frame can be used as cross-type sensors*, drastically improving acquisition speed when a subject enters the frame. Enhanced servo drive control and higher-speed inversion of the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) improves tracking, even with subjects that radically change speed or direction.
