NIKON TO OFFER 50 NEW “Z” LENSES BY 2025

Nikkor lenses are some of the best and have a huge variety of lenses

We are going to see a huge new surge in lenses within the next few years. All because so many of the brands of cameras changed their lens mount. Why? Because they changed from a DSLR camera, which uses lenses that are about the same size as the older 35mm film cameras, to the smaller mirrorless cameras which made it so the lenses mount, and the lenses went smaller. And that means what was good with one type of lens mount, they will now need to do the same thing to the smaller lens mounts, such as the new NIKON Z camera series.

NIKON Z LENSES NOW

As of this writing, Nikon makes about 27 lenses already for their Z camera series. So, that means they will release about 23 more lenses in the next few years. It is amazing how many lenses need to be created to accomplish all the different types of photography there is (Hmmm, that might be a good blog subject).

7 New lenses are about to be released soon:

With that being said, it is obvious that they have some already announced or rumored to be releases soon:

  • A 12-28mm DX zoom
  • A 200-600mm super-telephoto zoom
  • A 24mm DX lens
  • A 26mm lens
  • An 85mm S-line lens
  • A 400mm S-line lens
  • A 600mm S-line lens

Of course, that leaves many future lenses unaccounted for, though I’d certainly wager that we’ll get a 70-200mm f/4 lens, designed as a low-cost 70-200mm f/2.8 alternative. Look for a 500mm f/4 S-line lens, designed for bird and wildlife photographers, and several wider primes (including, perhaps, a 14mm f/2.8 and/or a 35mm f/1.4).

Once Nikon has covered all its more “conventional” bases, keep an eye out for the specialty lenses: fisheye lenses and zoom lenses, additional macro prime lenses, and tilt shift lenses. In the meantime, Nikon mirrorless shooters can still gain access to basic and specialty models via the FTZ adapters.

HOW DOES THIS COMPARE TO THEIR COMPETITORS: CANON AND SONY?

CANON; Canon currently has 25 lenses in their RF series of lenses. The RF lenses are the lenses Canon makes for their smaller mirrorless cameras. And they are planning on releasing about 30 more in the next 5 years. That should complete their lineup.

SONY: Well, Sony has had a head start on their lens lineup for about the last 7 years. So they already have about 70 lenses for their mirrorless cameras. Sony hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down, either, so for now – and for the foreseeable future – Sony will continue to lead the pack.

Sony is already ahead of the game with close to 70 lenses in their lineup.

HOW TO PICK AND CHOOSE A LENS:

I was looking through my arsenal of information I have available, but the best one is in my professional course, that describes how lenses can be used, what millimeter lenses are the best, etc. Go to my professional course titled “BASIC PHOTO COURSE”, and it is here at this link. Click here.

NOW WHAT WILL YOU DO TO

If you are serious about photography, you will want to get some extra lenses for your tools. It is amazing how your photography can be enhanced with a variety of lenses. You can choose a lens for the following reasons:

  • A wide angle lens for taking breathtaking landscapes
  • A macro lens for taking pictures close-up
  • A telephoto lens to get photos of wildlife
  • A fast lens to be able to shoot in low light
  • A fisheye lens to get almost a 180 degree view
  • A lens to take the perfect portrait
  • And so many other types of subjects.

NIKON CAMERAS: Their History, and their Cameras Today:

Nikon cameras is obviously one of the big names in the camera industry. It has covered a lot of people’s desires, because they make a camera model that covers every type of photographer, and including the Professional Photographer. The type of equipment they make for every type of photographer is also very well built, and designed to work with their amazing lenses. Nikon is an actual lens manufacture, and they have become famous for their lenses.

Let’s take a look at the History of Nikon cameras, and see how many of you Nikon users even knew about this information:

Nikon Corporation (株式会社ニコン, Kabushiki-gaisha Nikon) (UK: /ˈnɪkɒn/, US: /ˈnaɪkɒn/; Japanese: [ɲiꜜkoɴ] (listen)), also known just as Nikon, is a Japanese multinational corporation headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, specializing in optics and imaging products. The companies held by Nikon form the Nikon Group.[3]

Nikon’s products include cameras, camera lenses, binoculars, microscopes, ophthalmic lenses, measurement instruments, rifle scopes, spotting scopes, and the steppers used in the photolithography steps of semiconductor fabrication, of which it is the world’s second largest manufacturer.[4] The company is the eighth-largest chip equipment maker as reported in 2017.[5] Also, it has diversified into new areas like 3D printing and regenerative medicine to compensate for the shrinking digital camera market.[6][7][8][9]

Among Nikon’s notable product lines are Nikkor imaging lenses (for F-mount cameras, large format photography, photographic enlargers, and other applications), the Nikon F-series of 35 mm film SLR cameras, the Nikon D-series of digital SLR cameras, the Coolpix series of compact digital cameras, and the Nikonos series of underwater film cameras. Nikon’s main competitors in camera and lens manufacturing include Canon, Sony, Fujifilm, Panasonic, Pentax, and Olympus.

Founded on July 25, 1917 as Nippon Kōgaku Kōgyō Kabushikigaisha (日本光学工業株式会社 “Japan Optical Industries Co., Ltd.”), the company was renamed to Nikon Corporation, after its cameras, in 1988. Nikon is a member of the Mitsubishi group of companies (keiretsu)

Nikon Corporation was established on 25 July 1917 when three leading optical manufacturers merged to form a comprehensive, fully integrated optical company known as Nippon Kōgaku Tōkyō K.K. Over the next sixty years, this growing company became a manufacturer of optical lenses (including those for the first Canon cameras) and equipment used in cameras, binoculars, microscopes and inspection equipment. During World War II the company operated thirty factories with 2,000 employees, manufacturing binoculars, lenses, bomb sights, and periscopes for the Japanese military.

Reception outside Japan

After the war Nippon Kōgaku reverted to producing its civilian product range in a single factory. In 1948, the first Nikon-branded camera was released, the Nikon I.[11] Nikon lenses were popularised by the American photojournalist David Douglas Duncan. Duncan was working in Tokyo when the Korean War began. Duncan had met a young Japanese photographer, Jun Miki, who introduced Duncan to Nikon lenses. From July 1950 to January 1951, Duncan covered the Korean War.[12] Fitting Nikon optics (especially the NIKKOR-P.C 1:2 f=8,5 cm)[13] to his Leica rangefinder cameras produced high contrast negatives with very sharp resolution at the centre field.

Nikon – Today:

TOKYO – Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce that four of its products have been successful at the EISA Awards 2021-2022, presented by the Expert Imaging and Sound Association (EISA). The Nikon Z 6II full-frame mirrorless camera won the Advanced Camera award, while the Nikon Z 5 full-frame mirrorless camera received the Best Buy Camera (full-frame) award. NIKKOR lenses were also winners, with the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S receiving the Professional Telephoto Zoom Lens award, and the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 given the Macro Lens award.

The Expert Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) is a collaboration between 60 expert magazines from 29 countries across the globe, specialized in the fields of photography, mobile devices, hi-fi, home theater audio, home theater display & video, and in-car electronics. For approximately 40 years, EISA has chosen and honored the best imaging products released in Europe over the previous year in a number of categories.

Full-frame Mirrorless Camera “Nikon Z 5”
Interchangeable Lens for Mirrorless Cameras “NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S”
Interchangeable Lens for Mirrorless Cameras “NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8”

As you can see, Nikon is one of the best cameras on the market. They consistently win camera awards, and their lenses too.

I think that it would be safe to say that Nikon is currently the number 1 selling camera worldwide. And they have done it with their reputation of being a good strong, well built camera that can take some abuse, and that is why the professional photographers like this camera.
