Nikon Canada releases 39 minute 180-400 unboxing (and more) video
1

Several weeks ago, Nikon Canada debuted "Nikon TV" with a video - about something or other, and a couple of days ago they released their second video in the Nikon TV series: a 39 minutes video about the Nikon 180-400 lens. The video starts with an unboxing, and then a fairly knowledgeable Nikon Canada spokesperson/salesperson/Nikon rep talks about details of the lens and explains fairly well the features of the lens: (here is a direct link to the video on YT): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihRx4k7CdLM

I think anybody who is considering this lens as an option will enjoy the video.

The video was linked to in a recent Nikon Rumors post about the lens, which contains MANY videos about this lens (including a few other unboxing videos, and the early reviews of this lens): https://nikonrumors.com/2018/03/18/nikon-nikkor-af-s-180-400mm-f-4-ed-tc-vr-lens-unboxing.aspx/#more-120688

The guy speaking about the lens on behalf of Nikon Canada seems like he knows what he is talking about, and near the end of the video he talks about adding an ADDITIONAL external teleconverter to this lens. So - for those who want longer reach than 560mm, you can add a 1.4 TC in addition to the one that is built into the lens. My calculations make this a reach of 784mm on FX, at f8. (probably only the center focus sensor will give you autofocus, and only on the newer and better Nikon cameras)
