Nikon has just announced the Nikkor Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S, a previously teased telephoto lens for its mirrorless line of cameras. Not only with its foal length, but also AF performance and image stabilization, this lens is designed with sport and wildlife photographers in mind. And judging from the specs, they are going to like it.
Nikon has added a new lens to its Z-mount line. The Nikkor Z 28mm f/2.8 is a compact and affordable wide-angle prime, offering you all the perks of a modern lens. But what it stands out for is its nostalgic design, as it was made to resemble the Nikon lenses we used with film SLR cameras.
Other than the new Z9 camera, Nikon has also added two new zoom lenses to its mirrorless lineup: the Nikkor Z 24-120mm f/4 S and the Nikkor Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S. In addition, the company has also launched a new FTZ mount adapter in case you’d rather use your mirrorless lenses with your new Z9. So, let’s see what each of them has to offer.
It looks like we’re about to get two new Nikkor lenses for Nikon Z mirrorless cameras. According to the latest report, Nikon is about to announce Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.2 S and Nikkor Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S, and it’s rumored that they’re coming as soon as next week. So, let’s see what we know so far.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) has been affecting people and businesses all over the world, and it hasn’t spared the photo industry. After Canon temporarily shutting down some of its factories, now Nikon is delaying the launch of the Nikkor 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR lens due to “the global impact of the novel coronavirus outbreak.”
According to some recent reports, we’re only two days away from the official announcement of the Nikon Z50 and two new Z lenses. And it looks like the Nikon Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct lens will join the party, too. The latest reports say they will all be launched together, and we now have the expected prices of the upcoming gear.
Nikon’s lightweight 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR has been removed from Amazon’s search results, and pre-orders seem to have been cancelled and refunded. The lens was first announced as being in development last June, with the first sightings in the wild appearing a month later. Finally, a month after that, it was officially launched.
Yet, here we are, seven months later, with the lens still showing up as a pre-order item on everywhere that still has the listing available. The product listing on Amazon still exists, although it states that the item is currently unavailable and that they don’t know when or if it will be in stock. It has been removed from search results completely.
While the eyes of the photographic community are all pointed at the new Nikon Z mirrorless system, the company has released another impressive piece of gear. After announcing the development of a super-lightweight and compact 500mm f/5.6 lens, the glass now out and ready for preorders. Let’s take a look at the specs and more photos of the new telephoto lens from Nikon.
