Amateur Photographer: “Nikon is looking at introducing CINE lenses”

In a recent interview with Nikon’s senior executive Keiji Oishi about the new Nikon Z8 camera, AP reported that Nikon is looking at introducing new CINE lenses:

Q: When trying to attract a video audience, a challenge for Nikon is the lack of dedicated video lenses. There are a lot of companies, such as Sigma, making dedicated CINE lenses and it wouldn’t take Nikon a very long time to create it’s own range of CINE lenses…

A: There are currently no specific lenses for shooting movies in the range right now, but the Nikon Z line-up has many lenses that have a very good feature-set for video. We are looking at the possibility of introducing video-specific lenses, based on market needs, and currently studying this area.

Q: The Z-mount is not open to people to using third-party lenses – are there any plans to open up the mount so that videographers can use CINE lenses?

A:While not specifically about video lenses, through the Z mount licence agreement with specific specialised lens partners, we’ve expanded customer choice by including unique lenses from each company with different features than those currently offered by Nikon. So now we have a line-up that allows the customer to enjoy the Z mount system even more. (source: Amateur Photographer)
