Nikon just officially announced the development of the NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S, a fast mid-telephoto prime lens, and the NIKKOR Z 26mm f/2.8, a slim wide-angle prime lens, for Z-mount full-frame/FX-format mirrorless cameras.
Nikon is being very tight-lipped about their new ultrafast telephoto prime, leaving us with just the focal length, maximum aperture and 82mm front filter thread revealed in the single product image released alongside the press release. Unfortunately, we don’t know anything about pricing or availability just yet, but if you’re attending CES 2023 in Las Vegas from January 5–8, you can get a sneak peek of the lens at Nikon’s booth.
