Nikon is rumored to announce five new Nikkor lenses in 2017


In addition to the D820 and D7300 Nikon is rumored to announce five new Nikkor lenses this year (as of today Nikon still has two camera models that have already been registered with various government agencies but are not yet announced: N1546 and N1610).
