Nikon has announced a roadmap for its Z-mount mirrorless system. All of the lenses are full-frame, with one zoom being the exception.
The roadmap adds a 20mm F1.8, 50mm F1.2 and 105mm 'Micro' lens to the high-end 'S-Line' of lenses. There will also be a 28 and 40mm lens as part of what Nikon calls a 'Compact Prime' series and a non-S 60mm Micro close-up lens.

The 'S' line will also gain a 14-24mm F2.8 zoom and a 70-200mm F2.8 for sports and photojournalism. These will be accompanied by a 24-105mm S-line zoom and, while no aperture range has been specified, this is grouped with the existing F4 zooms, An S-line 100-400mm lens is also listed.
A non-S 24-200mm travel zoom and 200-600mm zoom complete the full-frame offerings, giving a pretty comprehensive picture of what Nikon has planned for the Z-mount.
On the APS-C side of things, there will be a 18-140mm (equivalent to 27-210mm), as with the compact primes, no maximum aperture is specified.
No specifics timescales are given for individual lenses but the roadmap says it shows the plans as far as 2021. As is normal, a footnote indicates that the plans may change without notice.
