Recap of recent Nikon presentation: two new Nikon DSLR cameras and “several” F-mount lenses coming in 2021


Here is another recap of a recent internal Nikon presentation:

  • The Z 7II starts shipping in early to mid-December. The second shipment to dealers will be in the middle of January (pre-order: Adorama | B&H).
  • There are 8 new Z mount lens released by 12/31/2021. The total will be 24 Z mount lenses.
  • The new lenses include 5 new prime lenses, a 400mm S, and a 600mm S lens for Z mount bodies.
  • The upcoming 100-400mm lens is very sharp and is anticipated to be a high volume lens.
  • Two new macro lenses: 60mm and 105mm.
  • The new Webcam Utility is free and is an excellent AP. Easy to use for connecting families digitally.
  • Confirmed: Nikon to release several new F mount lenses in 2021.
  • There are two new DSLR bodies to be released in 2021.
  • Nikon has not stopped the development of DSLR bodies but the majority of R&D money is targeted at mirrorless. They are not ready to shut down the F mount.
  • DSLR bodies are still outselling the Z-mount Mirrorless bodies but they expect within 60 days that mirrorless will outsell F-mount.
  • The Z mount bodies will continue to receive firmware updates and the plan is to implement significant upgrades, not just minor fixes.
  • Snap Bridge has been improved – you can now run firmware updates, much easier than with a memory card.
  • R&D continues to work on the Eye AF. It now includes a Pet mode. It will work on some wildlife but the future upgrades will focus on some wildlife Eye AF tracking.
