Nikon has released an updated Z-mount lens road map adding five more lenses to the recent 24-120mm f/4 and 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 lenses and the 400mm f/2.8 development announcement.

No release date or pricing has been provided for the up-coming Nikkor Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S super-telephoto prime lens, which is designed for full-frame (Nikon FX-format) mirrorless cameras. It will feature a built-in 1.4x teleconverter and a new coating that delivers the highest anti-reflection performance in Nikkor history, along with a design that is suitable for video recording.
The other four new lenses added to the roadmap include compact 26mm FX and 24mm DX prime lenses, an 800mm S-line super-telephoto prime lens and a 12-28mm DX wide-angle zoom. Three additional lenses, which were included in the previous roadmap but are yet to be formally unannounced, are 85mm and 600mm S-line prime lenses and a 200-600mm zoom lens. This brings the total number of FX Z-mount lenses to 27 plus two teleconverters and the number of DX (cropped-sensor) lenses to five. The new roadmap doesn’t include details of when the unannounced lenses are likely to be released but projections suggest at least 27 of the 32 listed could be available in stores by the end of 2022.
