The new teaser is about the lens (NOCT and Kit lens; updated)

The new Nikon Teaser is about the lens:

Same as the last teaser we saw, it does not really offer a lot of new insight.

But it confirms what we previously reported: There will be a new NOCT lens. At least this seems to be the only reason why they show the old  58mm f/1.2 Noct-Nikkor in the teaser.



  • After some tweaking on the image of the new lens, you can see the description of the new kit lens: Z 24-70mm 1:4 S /72
  • So it definitly is a f/4 lens with 24-70mm. 72 will be the filter diameter and S maybe stands for the stepmotor
  • Nikon also added a new image on some Instagram stories:

Cover seems to show a Nikon DSLR. Is there a second camera announced during Photokina? Maybe a D760? (replacing the D750) 

Details about the expected models (Z6, Z7) and the lens lineup

As reported, two bodies should be announced. Those may be:

  • Z6 with 24MP and focus on low light and high speed photography (mix of the A7 and A7s line)
  • Z7 with 46MP and focus on it’s high resolution (kind of the A7R line)

There should be three lenses at the start:

  • 24-70mm f/4
  • 50mm f/1.8
  • 24mm or 28mm f/1.8

While those apertures do not sound thst awesome we do see it as a hint that an IBIS will be part of the new cameras. The depth of field at f/1.8 is already quite small, but 1.8 allows lighter and cheaper models.

  • We guess that Nikon will focus on high end prime lenses.
  • There should also be a NOCT lens: A new 58mm f/0.95! This will not be available at the start and may will also cost a lot of money.
