Nikon rumored to announce a new Nikkor macro lens (probably 60mm)


A week ago I reported that Nikon is rumored to announce a new macro lens. The potential candidate for a replacement could be the AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED lens which was announced back in January 2008. I was told that this upcoming lens was the reason for the delay of the Nikon ES-2 film digitizing adapter set - Nikon wanted to ensure that the adapter will be compatible with the new macro lens.

The Nikon ES-2 film digitizing adapter set is recommended to be used with the AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED lens. The adapter can be used with a few other lenses as well:

"The ES-2 Film Digitizing Adapter can be used with the AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED Lens, the AF Micro-NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8D Lens, and the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Lens. Adapter rings are included with the ES-2 for use when attaching it to the AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED Lens or the AF-Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8D Lens. When used with the AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Lens no adapter ring is needed." (source)
