Nikon Z30 to be announced on June 29


The rumored Nikon Z APS-C  mirrorless camera (rumored to be called Z30) is rumored to be announced on June 29 (±1 day – as previously reported). Even though I do emphasize the word “rumored”, I am pretty confident in this information. We should also get the official announcement of the Nikkor Z 400mm f/4.5 VR S lens and maybe even the rumored Nikon Z9 firmware update version 2.1. I have noticed that lately Nikon likes to make several announcements in one day instead of spreading the announcements over several weeks. Here is a quick recap on the Z30 and stay tuned for more details and leaks:

What to expect next from Nikon (updated)


In this blog post (updated from the previous post), I will try to put together all the latest Nikon rumors I have been receiving in the past few weeks and months since there are still people who don’t know what is coming next. Keep in mind that some of the information here may turn out to be inaccurate. As you already know from the history of NikonRumors, I am trying my best to only post information with a very high chance of becoming reality and I never report made-up stories like some other rumor sites.

Lenses

I think the next three Nikkor Z lenses will be (in this order):

  1. Nikkor Z 400mm f/4.5 (see related patent; lens could be announced together with the Z30 in the next few weeks)
  2. Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.2 (see patent)
  3. Nikkor Z 600mm f/4 (see patent)

There were also some rumors about new high-end Nikkor Z APS-C mirrorless lenses but I am not yet convinced this will really happen. Of course, the list above is not all we will get from Nikon this year. We will for sure see more new Nikkor Z lenses, including some surprises, like the Nikkor Z 28-75mm f/2.8 that was not on any Z lens roadmaps (reminder: Nikon is planning to have over 50 Z lenses by 2025).
