Earlier this morning, Nikon released an updated Z Serial lens roadmap, highlighting its newly-released 17-28mm F2.viii lens and hinting at the release of a few new optics, including two large-aperture primes, a power zoom and a telephoto zoom that volition round out the company’south affordable F2.eight zoom range.
In addition to the new lenses that have been added to the roadmap, Nikon notwithstanding has placeholders for seven lenses that accept previously shown up on the company’s roadmap, just accept yet to exist announced: an APS-C 24mm lens, a 26mm lens, an 85mm S-line lens, a 200-600mm super-telephoto zoom and a 600mm super telephoto S-line lens.

The first of the four new lenses is a lxx-180mm lens that appears as though it might have an F2.8 discontinuity, as suggested past its placement on the roadmap. This suggests Nikon is looking to round out its F2.8 zoom lineup alongside its 17-28mm F2.8 and 28-75mm F2.viii lenses, both of which appear to be reworked versions of Tamron’due south nearly-identical Eastward-mount versions of those respective focal lengths.
As luck would have information technology – and as we speculated on in our 17-28mm F2.8 hands-on from earlier today – Tamron conveniently has a 70-180mm F2.8 Di III VXD Sony E-mountain lens that would serve as the perfect template for Nikon to rework and rebrand as its own as it has with its two other F2.8 zoom lenses.
Nikon has besides added 2 new South-Line primes to its roadmap: a 35mm model and a 135mm model. Nikon doesn’t specify the exact aperture of these upcoming lenses, but they’re in line with the other F1.two-F1.8 models, so expect them to exist fast.
The other addition to the roadmap is a new 12-28mm PZ lens for APS-C Z-mount cameras. This Power Zoom lens has the widest starting focal length in Nikon’s lineup, just considering it’s for Nikon’due south DX-format APS-C cameras, it’ll have a full-frame equivalent focal length of xviii-42mm.
This lens would as well exist Nikon’s commencement power zoom lens, which liekly means it’ll be for on-the-get creators, not unlike Sony’s recently-released 16-35mm F4 PZ Chiliad lens.
