Nikon has released an updated version of its visual lens roadmap for Z-mount camera systems, revealing silhouettes of three upcoming lenses, including two super-telephoto lenses and one macro prime lens.
While there are eleven total silhouettes, only three of them are new: the ‘Micro 50mm,’ the 400mm S-Line and the 600mm S-line. As you would expect, the silhouettes for the two super-telephoto lenses tower above the rest. Meanwhile, the ‘Micro 50mm’ lens falls halfway between the already-released 24–50mm F4–6.3 and 35mm F1.8 S-Line prime.
Below is another roadmap from Nikon that shows the focal length coverage of current and future lenses:

There’s still no concrete information on expected release dates for thee lenses, so the waiting game continues. But at least we now have visual representations of all the lenses currently on Nikon’s Z-mount lens roadmap and Nikon does say all of the lenses on display ‘will be available by the end of 2020.’
Vaporware no more: the much-speculated-about Zeiss ZX1 has arrived. Combining a 37MP full-frame sensor, minimalist controls and Lightroom Mobile built in, it’s a refreshing – if a bit quirky – take on the smartphone-meets-camera concept.
The Leica Q2 Monochrom is a version of the Gold Award-winning Q2 that only shoots images in black and white. It’s a niche (and pricey) product to be sure, but so far we find it to be well-designed and capable of outstanding results.
DJI’s second-generation Pocket camera includes a long list of useful upgrades including a wider, faster lens, a larger sensor, more resolution, improved audio and an optional handle that significantly improves control and supports live streaming.
The new DJI Mavic Mini 2 includes several notable improvements over the original Mavic Mini, including 4K video, Raw photo capability, and DJI’s robust OcuSync 2.0 transmission system.
