Nikon published a new Nikkor Z lens design article

Nikon published a new article on the design of Nikkor Z lenses:

Design with minimal decoration:

It is natural that product designers place top priority on operability. However, we also think that it is our important role to create a design that would inspire anyone to want to own the product. With conventional NIKKOR F lenses, decoration has played such a role. However, in designing the NIKKOR Z lenses, we have eliminated any decoration that might cause annoying distraction in order to allow photographers to concentrate on shooting, which resulted in a modern, extremely neat form.

On the NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct lens:

When the initial mockup of the Noct was shown by the design section, voices of astonishment arose. The reason was not only that a mockup with a much larger volume than expected appeared, but that it also delivered extraordinary power despite the fact that it was still at a mockup stage. Every staff member was instantly convinced by its volume and power. Every vital factor was densely concentrated in this lens, and the designers’ consistent passion to pursue the ultimate optical performance was felt with its overwhelming presence. The design assignment of how to maximize its presence without sacrificing power was well on its way to success.

NIKKOR Z lenses have just begun:

Mr. Baba: The development of the new Z mount is the most epochmaking event for Nikon in the previous 60 years. I had the excellent experience of being engaged in a project that will probably never be repeatable in my future life. However, the most important point is how we can further enhance the Z mount system including the camera body. I hope you can expect even more future development.
