The trend for telephoto and super telephoto lenses with more conservative apertures continues, as Nikon has designed a trio of tele lenses including a 1000mm f/8 for its Z system.

Patents have been uncovered for a total of three new PF lenses that might be in the pipeline soon: a 400mm f/4.5, 600mm f/5.6 and 1000mm f/8. All of which seem destined to join the best Nikon Z lenses, which the Big N has expanded considerably in the past year.
