New rumors: the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 lens to be replaced by the end of the year

I received the same rumor from multiple sources: the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 lens will be replaced by the end of the year. Prototypes are already being tested out in the field. The current 70-200mm version was announced back in 2009 and is currently selling for $2,096.95.

Here is an updated list on what to expect next from Nikon:

Nikon DSLR cameras

Nikon 1 

  • I am still not sure what is the future of the current Nikon mirrorless system. No rumors so far about a new Nikon 1 products, but several lens patents designed for cameras with 1″ sensor were filed in the past few months.

Large sensor Nikon mirrorless camera

  • The rumors so far are suggesting that a new Nikon mirrorless camera with a “larger sensor” will be announced in the next few months.


  • Two new versions of the 70-300mm lens will most likely be announce next.
  • New Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 lens.
  • In addition, we can expect an E/FL refresh of some of the Nikkor tele lenses.
