Get ready for some exciting news in the world of photography! According to a recent tweet by how2fly, Nikon’s much-anticipated super telephoto zoom lens, the “Z 200-600mm,” is rumored to be announced soon. While details are still scarce, some speculations suggest that it may be a “NIKKOR Z 200-600mm f/6.3” and could possibly be a non-S-Line lens, which could potentially mean a more affordable price point. However, given the impressive focal length of this lens, it’s hard to say for sure if it will come cheap. The anticipation is building up, and with the phrase “coming soon” being thrown around, there may be more leaks and rumors to come. We can’t wait to get our hands on more information!

Excitingly, the “Z 200-600mm” lens is part of Nikon’s official Z lens roadmap, as outlined in their PDF release. If we take a closer look at the roadmap, we can see that Nikon has some fantastic lenses in the pipeline, including a 35mm S-Line lens, a 135mm S-Line lens, a 70-18mm lens, a 200-600mm lens, a DX 24mm lens, and a DX 12-28mm PZ lens. That’s a total of four FX lenses and two DX lenses to look forward to! The last update to the Z lens roadmap was on January 5, 2023, so it’s exciting to see what Nikon has in store for us in the coming months.
Full list of NIKKOR Z lenses will be released in 2023:
- NIKKOR Z 12-28mm DX PZ lens
- NIKKOR Z 24mm DX lens
- NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8 pancake lens ($496.95 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama)
- NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.2 S lens

In addition to the lens announcement, Nikon’s annual financial results for April 2022 to March 2023 are scheduled to be released on May 11, 2023. This could potentially coincide with the announcement of the much-rumored “Z8” camera and possibly even a “surprise machine.” The photography community is buzzing with anticipation, and we can’t wait to see what Nikon has in store for us in 2023!
If the “Z 200-600mm” lens indeed comes at an affordable price, it could open up new possibilities for super-telephoto shooting with Z-mount cameras, making it more accessible to photography enthusiasts. Moreover, the rumors of the impending release of the “Z8” camera have also piqued our curiosity. Will Nikon surprise us with a simultaneous announcement of the lens and the camera? The anticipation is building up, and we can’t wait to see how Nikon’s latest offerings will shape the future of photography. Stay tuned for more updates!
