40 Million Lenses And Still Going
In a fitting tribute to the 90th Anniversary, Nikon surpassed the production milestone of over 40 Million Nikkor lenses this month.
Although Nikon was producing lenses as early as 1932, it wasn't until 27 years later that the F-mount was introduced alongside the legendary namesake camera model. In a testament to the popularity and stability of the engineering, lenses from that time will still mount and function (within limits) on all Nikon cameras, including the latest digital variants. We look forward to the next 40 Million and eagerly anticipate the latest developments as Nikon creates the next generation of optics.
