Nikon Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3, 50mm f/1.2, 14-24mm f/2.8 Lenses Coming in Late July
In addition to the Nikon Z5 full frame mirrorless camera, Nikon is also rumored to announce three new Nikkor Z lenses along with Nikon Z5 later this month (probably on July 21, 2020):
- Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-50mm f/4-6.3: probably be the new kit lens for Nikon Z5 mirrorless camera – it will be a small, light, compact (almost like a pancake), and cheap plastic lens with a collapsible design similar to the Nikkor Z DX 16-50mm.
- Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S: it will have almost the same size as the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S, and it may have the Noct nomenclature, just like the Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.2 S Noct lens.
- Nikon NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S: it will be smaller and lighter than the Nikon F-mount AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED lens.
The official announcement date is rumored for July 21, 2020, and maybe more Nikon products will be added to this list. Stay tuned for more Nikon Rumors!
