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.”
Well, this one’s come just in time for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, huh? While Canon seems to be dumping EF, Nikon isn’t abandoning the F mount.
Nikon has now announced their new AF-S 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR lens, costing a whopping $9,496.95. It looks like an absolute monster of a lens, but ideally suited to shooting the kinds of sports they’re going to be having in Tokyo this year, as well as all the usual sporting events.
Nikon has today officially announced the new Nikon D6 flagship DSLR. Well, they’ve announced the development of it, anyway. That’s pretty much all they’ve announced, though. There are no specs or details available other than the name and that it’ll be an FX-format full-frame DSLR.
But what’s possibly even more interesting is that they’ve also announced a new long f/2.8 zoom lens aimed at sports photographers, too. The AF-S Nikkor 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR is coming.
