Nikon’s Camera Arsenal at the 2018 Winter Olympics

Just take a look at the massive camera arsenal Nikon have brought to the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Nikon have 60 tech reps from over 10 countries around the world on hand to provide photographers with assistance, including services such as cleaning, checking, and calibrating equipment, Shutterbug reports.

Nikon’s Camera Arsenal

The Nikon arsenal contains the D5, D850, and a large selection of prime and zoom lenses. DPReview reports that while the exact number of Nikon cameras and lenses at the Games is confidential, the stockpile is worth about “several hundred luxury cars.” If each of those luxury car costs $40,000, then 400 of them would have a value of $16 million.


Nikon has begun publishing 2018 Olympics photos captured with its equipment on the Nikon Professional Services blog.

New Nikon Lens Announcement: AF-S 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR

Announced: Nikkor AF-S 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR

Nikon announces the AF-S NIKKOR 180–400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR, the first telephoto in the NIKKOR lineup to boast a built-in 1.4x teleconverter. Always sharp and always steady, this zoom lens allows 560 mm of reach the instant the action demands it.


From stadium to mountainside, the AF-S NIKKOR 180–400mm f/4E TC1.4 lets you own every advantage out in the field. A solid, well-positioned lever ensures easy, comfortable activation of the teleconverter. Photographers can increase the 180–400mm (f/4) focal-length range to 560 mm (f/5.6) without adjusting their hold on the camera, or taking their eye away from the viewfinder.


The advanced optical design ensures photographers can extend their reach without compromising sharpness. And Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) allows a four-stop advantage, even with the teleconverter engaged. SPORT VR reliably tracks fast-moving subjects, and advanced autofocus ensures subject-acquisition performance is superb. Ergonomic advantages include the fact that typical zoom- and focus-ring positions have been reversed for more balanced handling, and a fluorite lens element helps keep the weight down.



Sales start: 8th March 2018
Price: £10,999.00 inc. VAT
