Eighty-Million Nikkors

Nikon Corporation has just announced that the total production of NIKKOR lenses for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras has reached eighty million.

In 1959, Nikon (then Nippon Kogaku K.K.) released the Nikon F as well as its first NIKKOR lens for Nikon SLR cameras, the NIKKOR-S Auto 5cm f/2. The NIKKOR tradition has continued over the many years since that first lens was released. What’s more, Nikon continues to expand its lineup of interchangeable lenses for Nikon 1 cameras, the first of which was released in October 2011, and bringing total lens production to eighty million.
