Nikon Australia is proud to announce its milestone achievement of 95 million in total production for NIKKOR lenses1 designed for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras. Since the first NIKKOR lenses for Nikon SLR cameras were launched in 1959, Nikon has actively released a vast range of lenses that utilise superior optical technologies, including those developed exclusively by Nikon.
Earlier this month also saw the release of the AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR and AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR, both FX-format compatible super-telephoto lenses with a maximum aperture of f/4. The AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR and AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED VR both adopt two fluorite lens elements, which significantly reduce the lenses’ weight, making them the lightest in their respective classes2. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR, a high-performance 5× normal zoom lens compatible with the Nikon DX-format DSLR, was also introduced to the range. Naturally, the latest optical design technologies and Nikon’s exclusive and highly durable fluorine coat were also adopted for these lenses.
