JasonTheBirder: Honestly, this is one of the reasons why Nikon doesn't need to make APS-C specific lenses. You already have something fairly compact and cheap in a lens like this, which will also work well if you decide to try full-frame.

Right, there is no need to make the 16-50 DX and 50-250 DX.

The Nikon 35mm f1.8 DX is ~150. Canon has a EF-M 32mm f1.4 which is pretty small. DX lenses make sense. Look at Sigma with their 18-35 f1.8. There is no similar f1.8 FF lens. Sigma does make a 24-35 f2 lens, but thats not a x2 zoom.

To bad that Nikon will immediately apologize that they cant meet demand, and we will have to wait 6 months until you can actually buy one.

You can see the new lens between the 28-75 f2.8 and 70-180 f2.8. Its the same size as the 28-75. Its the one without letters on it.

Its german, but it doesnt matter, the video says capture everything with just one lens. So its gonna be something like a 24-300 or 28-400 f3.5-6.3, because superzooms are Tamrons thing.

No IBIS in a camera this large, at that price, is an epic fail.

KLO82: Wish Canon made something similar for EF mount.

Oh, EF. Sorry, didnt notice that. I dont think its possible to make a 70-180 for a DSLR so light. Vignetting isnt a problem with in camera or PP correction.

The RF 70-200 f2.8 L isnt something similar ?

Did anyone notice F052 is missing ? The trio is F050, ,F051, F053. There is a gap between 24 and 35mm. Looks like there could be a F052 28mm, coming later.

On article Nikon announces Z-mount lens roadmap (286 comments in total)

Nikon doesnt really want to sell this camera. Only one new DX lens until 2021, very disappointing. No IBIS. Looks like they only created it to make the Z6/7 look better.

The image quality is horrible. ISO 400 and 500 images in the gallery of the man and woman look like they came from a small sensor compact camera.

I agree. Smartphones can do better than that.

BJL: Just an aside: why not call it 3/4” format rather than this weird mix of decimals with fractions? So, just a bit bigger than the venerable 2/3” format.

Maybe for easier comparison to other convoluted descriptions like 1/2.5” and 1/2.33”.

There already is an old version (Leitz Wetzlar Elpro 2 16542) with 55 and 49mm thread included. Which you can get for much less money used. I have one which is like new for 60€.

Outstanding, great image. But, a m43 camera and he left it there for 3 days ?? Did he attach a nuclear reactor to it ? How can the tiny battery last 3 days ?

SmilerGrogan: Why do Nikon and Canon put stepping motors only in their variable aperture zooms and pancakes but not in the professional lenses?
I got a chance to shoot video with the Canon 18-55 with the stepping motor and it's like a dream how beautifully it focuses. If only it were a slightly better lens it feels like I could shoot the next Star Wars with it.

Because stepping motors dont have enough power to move big, heavy lens elements, which professional lenses have. You will only see stepping motor lenses which are slow, in the f3,5-5,6 range. That may change in the future, though.

TheSunsAnvil: Really cool, but I'm confused: At a shutter speed of 2sec, how was dash of falling sugar captured?

The scene was dark, no light. The only light source was provided by flash. A flash burst is very short, some flashes can go as fast as 1/50.000s. If the burst is 1/5000s, thats your effective shutter speed. No other light is recorded during the 2s exposure, because there isnt any.

p5freak: The point of a mirrorless camera is compact size, both body and lenses, at least for Canon and Nikon, IMHO. Look at the Canon M series, its much smaller than a APS-C DSLR. Making it fully compatible to SLR lenses, without an adaptor, would compromise that size advantage. There is no need to create a full lineup of mirrorless lenses, because at some point those lenses would lose their size advantage. A mirrorless 200mm f2.8 lens wouldnt be much smaller than its SLR counterpart. Three to four mirrorless lenses in the 20-50mm range, fairly fast (f2), smaller than their SLR counterparts, should be fine.
And if you dont feel comfortable with the small mirrorless body, you can still buy the larger SLR.

It makes no sense to use a mirrorless camera with a 2,8/70-200. The whole point of mirrorless is compact size, for Canon and Nikon, because they already have bigger cameras. Creating a mirrorless 2,8/70-200 makes no sense, because there is no size advantage.
Canon could have switched to mirrorless in their SLRs, but they didnt. All they need to do is create a sensor with PDAF (which they have, since 2013), and remove the mirror. They would retain the flange distance needed for SLR lenses, and they would be mirrorless.

p5freak: Boring, ancient mirror slap technology from the stone age. The future is mirrorless. Nikon cancels the 18-50 DL, which would have been unique, but releases this dinosaur. USB 2.0 ?? No 4k/60fps ?

You are not getting it. I said mirrorless is the future. Not mirrorless is now the best. The future is what happens later.
