Nikon Just Teased Its Roadmap of Mirrorless Lenses


Nikon fans, take note: the Japanese manufacturer has just released a teaser of all of the glass that Nikon mirrorless users can expect to see in the near future, bringing the total number of lenses to 27.

Nikon took almost the opposite approach to Canon, initially releasing a range of slightly slower, more affordable glass as opposed to Canon’s massive aperture monsters (with the exception of the Noct, of course — currently only $7,499 thanks to a holiday discount). Here’s the latest graphic published on the Nikon UK website:

An overview of Nikon’s mirrorless lenses can be found on the Nikon USA website.

What many have been waiting for are the super fast primes, and while Nikon is still being cagey with the apertures, there’s one lens that fans will be keen to see: the second S-Line 85mm. No-one yet knows whether it will be f/1.2 or f/1.8, and the closest we can get to figuring it out is comparing the silhouette with the existing S-Line 85mm f/1.8:

There are a couple of compact, affordable primes in the pipeline — a 28mm and a 40mm, and no doubt the S-Line 24-105mm (can we assume that this will be f/4?) and the S-Line Micro 105mm will also draw broad interest. 

The order remains to be seen, and some might be determined by whether Nikon pushes to release a mirrorless version of the D6 in time for the Tokyo Olympics, perhaps making the massive telephoto lenses a more pressing need.

What are you most excited to see and which lenses do you think Nikon should bring to market first? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
