A week ahead of the official launch, Nikon has published another teaser of its upcoming mirrorless camera. This time, the short video puts focus on the lens. And from what we can see, it looks like the rumored Nikon Z-Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/0.95 might not only be a rumor.
Just like the previous teasers, this one also suggests that Nikon is relying on their history to create the new camera and lenses. “Inspired by our legacy. Built for the future,” a line in the video reads. And the first lens that appears in the frame is a rare and famous Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/1.2.
Judging from the previous reports, the lenses that we’ll get to see next week along with the two new mirrorless cameras will be a 24-70mm f/4, a 50mm f/1.8 and a wider-angle one (24mm f/1.8, 28mm f/1.8 or 35mm f/1.8). But another rumored lens was a Z-Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/0.95, which should reportedly come at a later date.
The last time the name “Noct” was used was for the famous Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/1.2, and Nikon recently registered NOCT trademark. The teaser refers to the Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/1.2, even though we don’t get much more information. So, the guess is that we will get to see the Z-Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/0.95, although it’s not certain when. But if you ask me, I’ll be happy enough just to see the new Nikon mirrorless camera and the “basic” lenses first, hear the impressions about them and see the photos.
