Here is what Nikon have to say about it:

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.

Built-in 1.4x teleconverter: The 180–400 mm (f/4) focal-length range extends up to 560 mm (f/5.6)

Sharp at any length: Benefit from edge-to-edge sharpness throughout the zoom range even when shooting wide open

Steady at speed: VR enables shooting speeds up to four stops slower than otherwise possible.1 SPORT VR reliably tracks fast-moving subjects

Always on track: Advanced AF tracking keeps pace with fast-moving subjects. An electromagnetic diaphragm ensures precise exposures at high frame rates.

Field ready: Every movable part of the lens barrel is fully weather-sealed. A fluorine coating actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality.

The Sample Pictures look amazing!
