Nikon teases upcoming super telephoto lenses, 50mm prime with an updated lens road map

Click to enlarge. The new 'Micro 50mm' prime is center-left in the bottom row and the two super-telephoto lenses are top-right in the back row. Nikon has released an updated version of its visual lens roadmap for Z-mount camera systems, revealing silhouettes of three upcoming lenses, including two super-telephoto lenses and one macro prime lens.

While there are eleven total silhouettes, only three of them are new: the Micro 50mm, the 400mm S-Line and the 600mm S-line. As you would expect, the silhouettes for the two super-telephoto lenses tower above the rest. Meanwhile, the Micro 50mm lens falls halfway between the already-released 2450mm F46. 3 and 35mm F1. 8 S-Line prime.

Below is another roadmap from Nikon that shows the focal length coverage of current and future lenses:

Theres still no concrete information on expected release dates for thee lenses, so the waiting game continues. But at least we now have visual representations of all the lenses currently on Nikons Z-mount lens roadmap and Nikon does say all of the lenses on display will be available by the end of 2020.
