Nikon introduced the AW1 camera with only two underwater lenses: 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 and 10mm f/2.8. The next lens in the AW1 lineup will most likely be the Nikkor 1 10-100mm f/4-5.6 pictured above. The announcement date is still unknown.

    Some news about DF please :)

  • DesertCat

    Nice choice for an all-around lens for the AW1. Considering that the current 10-100mm is the largest lens for the other N1 cameras (ok, the PD zoom is even bigger) and that the underwater sealing system adds to the bulk of the lens, this one will probably be rather large.

  • LarryC

    I think this could be a very interesting camera and I wish I had one last weekend while free diving with seals off Santa Cruz islands, and the lens does seem like a nice all around lens for land use, but wouldn’t one want much brighter lenses for underwater use?

  • Mike

    What? No teaser video for this lens?

  • sumo

    I hope they release a fisheye, ultrawide, and macro lens, then the cam becomes really useful underwater.

    • Adrian Gopal

      I would love an ultrawide and macro too.. the kit lens min focus distance sucks..

    Hm, no. Need something faster under water.

    • HotDuckZ

      Is strobe a better way?

      • http://Flickr.com/inthemist InTheMist

        Maybe, but the strobe isn’t launched yet, and I’m not sure I want one anyway.

        • Neopulse

          I think it’ll be good enough for not so serious photographers.

  • Anton PupkIn

    Sony has already made a 24-200 f/2.8 lens for the same sized sensor. Nikon is still making extremely dark crap for its system.

    • HotDuckZ

      Look the size of Sony and it’s can’t change lens under the water.

      • Ethan

        yeah, look at how much SMALLER it is.

          Wrong lens you got there, the PD has been discontinued for a while. The 10-100 f4-5.6 VR is 20mm shorter and quite a bit lighter that the PD you referenced so the Nikon wins on size.

          • El Aura

            Developing a completely new lens as the PD was and then discontinuing it after less than two (?) years seems like a not very good investment (but then I thought the PD was ‘optimised’ for video by having a power zoom and thus it would remain available alongside the newer version)>

    Wondering how big this lens is going to be.. since the zoom will be internal, to keep the AW.. or is it going to be like the xisting 10-100 which extends out.. Hmm.. waiting..

  • twoomy

    Hope we get an UWA zoom for this camera. I’d buy into the system in a heartbeat.

    • Global

      BRIGHT zoom. If you use this in the rain, or when moving on water or underwater, you need a fast bright lens.

  • Kevin D Dell

    I think some of you are missing the point–AW stands for All Weather, not just underwater. In rough conditions (kayak, canoe, deep sea fishing) this lens (since it appears to have VR) and the AW1 could be a VERY useful combination.

    For true underwater photography, the aperture is probably too small, given the size of any strobe they could practically construct.

    For me in a canoe on the Potomac River, 20 feet from a bald eagle, this becomes a godsend.

  • CGL

    This is cool, but I cannot imagine using an f/5.6 lens underwater. ON the beach or while boating or kayaking yes. What they really need is a super wide f/2, an a few primes ;-)

  • Gareth O’Neill

    I want a 6-10mm 2.8 and/or a 8mm 2.0, then we’re in business.

  • Global

    What is the multiplier on the Aw1 system? Is it 3x? I think the fullframe 35mm multiplier should always be mentioned in posts about these new systems and 43rds and others. I cant keep track of half these cameras sensor size multipliers.

    So this is a 30-300mm? Or maybe a 28-2xx? Seems like everyone is doing a 28-300, so im just guessing.

    • Jamo

      Nikon 1 system multiplier is 2.7 for equivalent field of view in 35mm format

  • Sean Golden

    That gives me hope that we will se a V3 pretty soon

  • Dave Ingraham

    Any more rumors about this lens?

  • SP77

    This lens would be perfect for me. I have the AW1 two lens kit, but would like more range than the 11-27. This would be ideal for the beach, water park, and splash park activities where you need “waterproof” but aren’t necessarily going underwater and are already in good light. Yes, for actual underwater shots I stick with the 10mm f/2.8. Hope this comes out before summer. I’ll be pre-ordering.
