New Gear from Nikon

Nikon just came out with a flurry of new announcements, including the 70-200mm f/4 VR telephoto lens, the 1 V2 mirrorless camera, and the announcement of several new lens for that camera. Check out the details below…


Nikon launches 70-200mm F4 VR tele-zoom

The long awaited answer to Canon’s 70-200 f/4IS – but with an extra stop of stabilization (claimed by Nikon). This should prove to be a popular lens, which has been on the wish-list of many a Nikonian since the Canon came out. Nikon is sure beefing up it’s f/4 lineup, along with the recent additions of the 16-35 f/4 VR and 24-120 f/4 VR.

Hands on with dpreview.

Nikon releases Nikon 1 V2

Nikon took some flack for their first batch of mirrorless cameras, lacking the manual controls that serious photographers love. So they’ve refreshed the higher-end model with a few answers to those concerns. It’s got a nicer beefier grip, more custom buttons, built-in flash, mode dial, and more. But it still looks rather awkward like the first models.

Hands on with dpreview.

Nikon announces development of three 1 Nikkor lenses

A bold announcement for the future of the 1 series, including a super telephoto lens (27-270mm equivalent), a wide angle (18-36mm equivalent), and a fast prime (87mm equivalent). The wide angle seems like a strange choice of focal length, but the fast 1.2 aperture of the prime lens will earn some praise.
