Nikon's mirrorless lineup is about to expand a bit, as rumors have it that next week, the company will be announcing at least one new camera and lens and possibly even more. Both the lens and body are expected to be quite affordable.
The announcement, expected on July 21, is likely to bring a new camera, the Nikon Z 5, as well as a new lens, the Nikkor Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 (along with 1.4x and 2x teleconverters). The Z 5 is likely to have a 24.3 MP sensor, 5-axis in-body image stabilization, a hybrid AF system with 273 AF points and eye detection (including animals), 4K video, dual card slots, and dust- and weather-proofing. Price-wise, it looks to slot between the Z 50 and Z 6. The Nikkor Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3 lens looks to be a cheap (likely kit) lens that may end up pairing with the Z 5. There are also rumors of two other lenses possibly coming as well — possibly a 50mm f/1.2 and 14-24mm f/2.8. I fully expect Nikon to be readying higher-level Z bodies fairly soon as well, particularly with Canon pushing hard with the R5 and Sony readying the a7S III. It looks like things are about to get exciting!
