Nikon is already working on new Higher and Lower end Z models

As reported by MirrorlessRumors it appears Nikon is working on Z models placed both above and below the current Z6 and Z7 cameras. There is yet no info about when these will be announced. It also seems unlikely that the low end models will feature a smaller APS-C sensor…

 

This is how the Nikon F1, F2 and F3 would look with a Z-mount

Many would have loved to get a more “old styled” Z-mount mirrorless camera. Well, don’t give up your hope yet. After all Nikon made a DF DSLR and we might get a Nikon F styled Z-mount camera too. Here are some renderings showing the F1 F2 and F3 cameras with Z-mount:

Finally the first images of the new 24-70mm f/2.8 and 14-30mm f/4.0 Z prototype lenses!

Well, it looks like the 24-70mm f/2.8 and 14-30mm f/4.0 development is really in final stage. Dpreview spotted them on the Tokyo Z launch event:

Also not quite ready for primetime are three forthcoming S-series lenses (from left to right) the 24-70mm F2.8, 58mm F0.95 ‘Noct’ and 14-30mm F4. (Sorry about the limited depth of field in this shot, I was trying to isolate the Noct, and then forgot to get a proper group shot before moving on. It’s been a long day.)

As you can hopefully tell, though, the Noct is massive and the 24-70mm F2.8 – while not quite as enormous – looks like it will also be a pretty beefy lens when it’s released next year, dwarfing the compact 24-70mm F4 kit lens. The 14-30mm (shown mounted on a Z 7) on the other hand is fairly compact, which we know is one of the technical advantages of a very short flange-back distance.

Here we have the 58mm f/0,95

And here the 24-70mm f/2.8:

 

 

 

Noct 58mm f/0,95 will cost about $6,000!!!

At todays Z presentation in Tokyo Nikon suggested the new 58mm f/0,95 price will be around $6,000.
Here is a size comparison I made using the CameraSize.com tool. From left to right you can see the new Nikon 24-70mm Z lens, the Noct 58mm f/0,95 and the Zeiss 50mm f/1.4. Below there is one more comparison with the Nocturnus 50mm f/0,95 FE lens.
