Yes, filter can be left out, but you need to re-adjust focus in-camera if you have a camera that's capable of doing so. Also true of the front protective glass. If you're crazy enough to shoot without it, the optical formula changes and you'll want to re-calibrate the focus.

Question

What is the best Nikon telephoto lens for shooting from a bean bag rest on a jeep on safari?

I just returned from an African safari. Since my D 4 body, on order for months, never came in I used a D 700 body. My 70 to 200 mm Nikon lens even with the 2x teleconverter was too short. The photo store recommended a Sigma 150-500 mm that I ended up using most of the time. This inexpensive lens did an ok job up close but was not clear enough at distance. I would like a better Nikon lens for a return safari. The Nikon 200-400 zoom had mixed reviews at distance and I would need to use the teleconverter on it. Would a 500mm or 600mm Nikon lens work satisfactorily from the bean bag mount on a jeep? What lens would you recommend for this purpose?

Question

Is a neutral density filter available for the 200-400/f4?

If not, is it possible to rig one from a spare filter holder and a regular, screw-on 52mm ND filter?

Nikon does not have an ND filter available for the AF-S NIKKOR 200-400mm f/4G ED VR II lens. However, a 52mm filter can be screw into the dedicated slip-in filter holder included with the lens.

Question

Does the length of the lens change when zooming from 200 to 400 mm?

Understand IF means length does not change with focusing. But what about when zooming...?

Question

Use of 1.7 or 2.0 tele converter

On the Nikon article about using tele-converters it states:
The AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 200-400mm f/4G IF-ED will only autofocus with the TC-14E II.
But on the compatibility chart concerning the 200-400 lens & 1.7 & 2.0 converters it states:
† Autofocus is available only with cameras that offer f/8 support. These include the D4/D4S.
Since I use a Nikon D4s shouldn't I be able to use a 1.7 or 2.0 tele-converter and also have auto focus capability? Gordon Ripley

Yes it will AF with the D4, I use the 200-400 with a 1.7 tc on a D3 and it autofocuses just fine, though the only minor issue i have is that you have to tweak the focus fine tune a bit to get the best out of it
