Nikon celebrates 110 millionth interchangeable lens

null

Total production of NIKKOR lenses – Nikon's name for its interchangeable lenses – has reached 110 million as of October 2018. 

Nikon has produced NIKKOR F lenses for SLR cameras since 1959, and earlier this year it introduced the new NIKKOR Z lenses for full-frame mirrorless cameras.

The full line-up currently consists of approximately 100 types of lenses that support a wide variety of applications, including fixed focal length (prime) lenses and zoom lenses that cover ultra-wide-angle to super-telephoto angles of view, fisheye lenses and macro lenses.

Cutting-edge design

Since the initial introduction in 1959, NIKKOR F lenses have incorporated the cutting-edge technologies of the time, with features such as aperture control, autofocus, and vibration reduction (VR). The new, larger-diameter mount of the Nikon mirrorless cameras has unlocked further possibilities in lens design and increase capabilities in optical performance with its NIKKOR Z lenses. The variety of high-performance lenses on offer includes the fastest lens in Nikon history, with f/0.95.

When the new Nikon Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct launches in 2019, it will be the fastest ever Nikon-fit interchangeable lens
