Nikon Z Mount Patents: Z 16-34mm f/2.8, Z 18-50mm f/2.8-4 & Z 16-50mm f/4 Lenses

Nikon has filed three new patents for Z mount mirrorless cameras. The application describes NIKKOR Z 16-34mm f/2.8 Lens, NIKKOR Z 18-50mm f/2.8-4 Lens and NIKKOR Z 16-50mm f/4 Lens.

We can say that all Z-mount lenses are designed for Nikon full frame mirrorless camera system. As you remember, in a CP + 2021 event interview, Nikon manager stated that the company is considering to release many new cameras and lenses in 2021.

Nikon plans to have a total of 27 lenses and 2 teleconverters on the Z lens roadmap by 2022. Nikkor Z lens roadmap: Continue reading “Nikon Z Mount Patents: Z 16-34mm f/2.8, Z 18-50mm f/2.8-4 & Z 16-50mm f/4 Lenses”

Nikon Z TC-1.4x & TC-2x Teleconverters now in Stock

Nikon introduced two new teleconverters with its professional Z 70-200mm f2.8 VR S (B&H Photo Video/Adorama/Amazon) telephoto zoom: The Z TC-1.4x and TC-2.0x teleconverters are designed for Nikon’s Z-series mirrorless cameras and corrected for full-frame sensors. The Nikon Z TC-1.4x & TC-2x teleconverters are now in stock and shipping at major US stores.

Nikon Z Teleconverter TC-1.4x: $546.95 at AmazonB&HAdorama.

Nikon Z Teleconverter TC-2x: $596.95 at AmazonB&HAdorama.

Teleconverters are mounted between the lens and the camera body and magnify the image by 1.4x or 2.0x thus effectively increasing the focal length of each lens by the same amount. Unfortunately lenses have to be designed to work with teleconverters and currently the Nikon Z 70-200mm f2.8 VR S is the only lens which can be used with Nikon’s new TC-1.4x and TC-2.0x. But Nikon will certainly add more lenses to their Z line-up in the future which can use teleconverters.

Skylum launched the new Luminar 4 with AI Sky enhancer tool. For a limited time you get this package with a $10 discount using coupon code “CAMERANEWS” and extra Bonuses.
