London, UK, 24th October 2012 Nikon today announced the development of three new 1 NIKKOR lenses to further expand the line-up of options for the Nikon 1 compact system cameras.

The new lenses being developed are a 32mm*1 medium-telephoto fixed focal length lens with a fast maximum aperture of f/1.2 optimal for portraits exhibiting significant background blur or bokeh; a vibration-reduction (VR) equipped 6.7-13mm*2 f/3.5-5.6 ultra-wide-angle zoom lens that is the first 1 NIKKOR lens to offer a 100° angle of view; and a compact and lightweight 10x zoom lens covering the 10-100mm*3 range of focal lengths with maximum apertures of f/4-5.6, making it a lens that is convenient and portable enough to take anywhere.

Jordi Brinkman, Product Manager, Nikon 1 Compact System Cameras, Nikon Europe says: “The Nikon 1 is now the biggest selling system in its category in Europe*4 and the compact nature of the 1 NIKKOR lenses is a key part of the Nikon 1 advantage – portability, power, speed and quality. The development of these three new lenses will be strongly welcomed within the Nikon 1 community.”

The current 1 NIKKOR line-up consists of the 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens released last year; the 1 NIKKOR VR 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6 compact telephoto zoom lens; the 1 NIKKOR 10mm f/2.8 slim wide-angle fixed focal length lens; the 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100mm f/4.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM lens equipped with a power drive mechanism and recommended for movie recording; the 1 NIKKOR 11-27.5mm f/3.5-5.6 2.5x normal zoom lens; and the 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8 fixed focal length lens with fast maximum aperture. The addition of the three new lenses will bring the total lineup to nine.

Nikon will continue to develop lenses that make the most of the capabilities and performance offered by the Nikon 1 system.

An on-sale date, suggested retail price and further specifications will be announced by Nikon Corporation at a later date.
