Nikon mirrorless fans will be pleased to hear that the company is planning at least a dozen new lenses for the next 12 months, greatly expanding their lineup and filling in both some popular and premium options.
Nikon CFO Muneaki Tokunari recently confirmed the plan to Nikkei, mentioning that at least a dozen new mirrorless lenses are planned for the next fiscal year (April 2021 to March 2022), along with an unspecified amount of new cameras.
Nikon has mostly taken the opposite approach from Canon. Whereas Canon led with some spectacular lenses that push the boundaries of optical design, Nikon mostly began with more modest lenses such as f/4 zooms that were more pragmatically oriented. With the addition of the silhouetted lenses seen in the roadmap above, the company is sure to grab the attention of wildlife and sports shooters, portraitists, wedding photographers, and macro shooters. On top of that, the DX 18-140mm should pair nicely with the Z 50.
2021 sure looks to be an exciting year!
