The upcoming Nikon Zfc announcement doesn’t kill the rumors for a new smaller and cheaper Nikon Z30 mirrorless camera. Since the new Zfc will have pretty much the same specifications and price as the Z50 (around $1,000 with a kit lens), there is still a place and need for a real entry-level mirrorless model placed under the Zfc/Z50, especially since the D3500 is already discontinued.

The two new Nikkor Z 28mm f/2.8 and 40mm f/2 pancake lenses could be announced together with the Nikon Z fc camera on June 28th


Together with the new Z fc camera, on June 28 Nikon may also officially release the two new Nikkor Z pancake mirrorless lenses (28mm f/2.8 and 40mm f/2).

I am still not 100% sure about this rumor, but it makes sense since the small pancake lenses will be a good fit for the new APS-C-based Z fc camera. This can also explain the confusion about what lenses will be announced together with Z fc.

The other good news is that two new Nikkor Z pancake mirrorless lenses will be cheap (or cheaper than expected). I do not have the exact price yet, but both lenses could be in the $200-$300 range.
