These photographs were captured with the Nikon Z9 Camera and the Nikon Z 400MM | 540MM f2.8 Prime Lens. I captured the images with manually configured settings, hand-held. Furthermore, this may very well be the best lens in my kit. In addition, this is not a ZOOM lens. Instead, it is a Prime Lens with two focal points (400MM and 540MM) that are achieved by a toggle switch. Effectively, it provides two lens’ in one.
