Nikon interview: “demand is returning strongly”, “steady” sales for the latest cameras, more DX Z-mount lenses coming, DSLRs and F-mount delays expected


Here is a recap of a recent AP interview with Tetsuya Morimoto (Director at Nikon Europe):

  • Nikon on 2020 and COVID-19: “As an initial reaction to COVID-19, we saw a halt in customer purchasing. Consumer demand began to drop throughout the world. When consumer demand fluctuates so much, any manufacturer will be faced with challenges relating to the supply chain. Although we are not totally back to normal levels, we have thankfully seen a healthy recovery, much better than what we had originally anticipated. Global demand is returning strongly.
  • The new Nikon D780, Z6 II, and Z7 II cameras have been well-received by the market with “steady” sales.
  • More DX-format lenses for Z-mount are on the way.
  • Nikon expects the production of some DSLR cameras and F-mount lenses to be impacted by the fire at AKM Semiconductor in Japan.
  • The remaining questions were answered with the standard for Nikon “While we cannot comment on future products, we are constantly evaluating the needs of the market in order to respond accordingly“.
