75 Million Nikkors!

Nikon Corporation reached an amazing milestone this month : seventy-five million NIKKOR lenses produced for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras.

Nikon (then Nippon Kogaku K.K.) released its first NIKKOR lens for Nikon SLR cameras, the NIKKOR-S Auto 5cm f/2, in 1959 along with its first SLR camera, the Nikon F. Since releasing that first lens many years ago and establishing the NIKKOR tradition, Nikon has expanded its lineup of interchangeable lenses, recently adding a line of interchangeable lenses for the Nikon 1 cameras and bringing total production to an amazing seventy-five million.
