Melville, NY – Nikon said Thursday it reached the 80 millionth mark for total production of Nikkor and 1 Nikkor lenses for Nikon DSLR and mirrorless compact system carmeras, respectively.
Coincidentally, Nikkor lenses have also been produced for 80 years, the company said in a statement.
In January, Nikon announced two new additions to the current Nikkor lineup, including the AF-S Nikkor 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR, super-telephoto lens compatible with Nikon’s FX-format D-SLRs that offers the longest focal length in the history of Nikkor autofocus (AF) lenses.
The second was the compact and lightweight AF-S Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED wide-angle zoom lens.
In March, the 5x telephoto-zoom AF-S Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR was announced, offering a wide focal range and fast AF speed.
Nikon also released two new lenses for the Nikon 1 series in the 1 Nikkor VR 10-100mm f/4-5.6 10x zoom and the ultra wide-angle zoom 1 Nikkor VR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6.
In May, Nikon introduced the fastest lens in the 1 Nikkor lineup – the 1 Nikkor 32mm f/1.2, medium telephoto fixed focal length lens with a wide maximum aperture of f/1.2.
The Nikon 1 lens collection now numbers nine lenses.
