Nikon have just produced their 110 millionth lens
Nikon have announced a significant milestone - the production of their 110 millionth NIKKOR lens.
Nikon have been producing NIKKOR F lenses for SLR cameras since 1959, and recently announced their newest mount, NIKKOR Z lenses, for mirrorless cameras.
Nikon's first SLR, the Nikon F SLR camera was released in 1959, as well as the first NIKKOR lenses for Nikon SLR cameras, including the NIKKOR-S Auto 5cm f/2.
Currently, Nikon's total lineup consists of approximately 100 types of lenses including fixed focal length (prime) lenses and zoom lenses that cover ultra-wide-angle to super-telephoto angles of view, fisheye lenses, and macro.
Nikon say they are one of the few manufacturers that consistently covers all stages of lens production, from development of optical glass at the Nikon Hikari Glass factory in Akita, Japan, to final lens production.
