Possible list of upcoming Nikon lenses

This is a list of lenses scheduled to be announced by Nikon in the near future (not necessary in 2011):

  • Nikon AF-S VRII Zoom-Nikkor 80-400mm f/4G IF-ED N
  • Nikon AF-S VRII Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4 IF-ED
  • Nikon AF-S VRII Micro-Nikkor 70-200mm f/4 IF-ED N
  • Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/2G
  • Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/2G
  • Nikon AF-S Nikkor 105mm f/2G
  • Nikon AF-S DX VRII Zoom-Nikkor 16-70 f/3.5

The tipster also described two different F-mount adapters for the upcoming mirrorless camera, one of them will probably support AF.

Reportedly, Nikon  has more new PC lenses in the works, no further details were given. We should see related patents online soon.

There are some ramblings about updating the super lenses to meet wildlife/sports demands.

Prepare to see patents for a 800mm f/4 and 600-1200mm f/4-8 lenses (with a built in 2X teleconverter that will get you to 1200mm f/8).

Since advanced information of upcoming Nikon lenses is difficult to get and release plans are often changed, I would rate this rumor at 40% probability.
