Nikon Z Mount Lens Road Map

Nikon's currently published road map for Z lenses:

bythom nikon lens lineup 2020 final
  • 18-140mm DX zoom (before end of 2021)
  • 24-105mm S-Line zoom (before end of 2021)
  • 28mm compact lens (before end of 2021)
  • 40mm compact lens (before end of 2021)
  • 50mm Micro-Nikkor (before end of 2021) Originally listed as 60mm by Nikon
  • 85mm f/1.2 S-Line
  • 100-400mm S-line zoom (before end of 2021)
  • 105mm Micro-Nikkor (before end of 2021)
  • 200-600mm zoom (before end of 2021)
  • 400mm S-Line 
  • 600mm S-Line

So, is this enough? No. Particularly missing in Nikon's Road Map are:

  1. Completion of the f/4 zoom cycle (missing 70-200mm)
  2. Telephotos that aren't zooms (e.g. 105mm or 135mm prime, any exotic)
  3. Complete fast prime set (e.g. f/1.2 or better in 35mm, 85mm)
  4. Additional compact lenses (collapsing zooms, small primes)
  5. Any PF lens (Nikon made this a specialty and they're popular, but no Z versions)
  6. Any tilt-shift lens
