Hands-on with the Nikon 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 S Z Nikkor zoom lens

This week, we were able to get out and do some test shooting with the new Nikon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 S Nikkor Z lens. We found this lens to deliver excellent performance and sharpness even when paired with the Nikon 1.4x Z teleconverter. But is this lens for you? We’ll give our thoughts and comparisons with similar lenses in the Nikon lineup.

Check prices on Nikon lenses and help support this podcast:
