Nikon has launched a new camera and a new lens with some retro vintage look and feel painted all over. The new NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 SE is a compact lens and in Nikon’s own words, a new special edition lens with a heritage design that takes inspiration from the era of iconic manual NIKKOR lenses. Its design mimics the look of the lenses once used on Nikon’s classic FM cameras. Nikon is also launching a Special Edition Black Retro-Inspired Nikon Z fc Mirrorless Camera.
NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 (SE) costs $309.95 and is now available to pre-order in the US online via Amazon ( Amazon.com ). This item will be released on January 31, 2023. Nikon Z fc Special Edition Black with NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR Kit lens will be sold for $1199.95 in the US. This camera is also available to purchase in Amber Brown, White, Natural Gray, Sand Beige, Coral Pink and Mint Green color options.
From the manufacturer
A full-frame standard prime, the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 (SE) works—and looks—great on any Z series camera. On full-frame/FX format cameras like Z 6II and Z 5, it covers the sweet spot between 35mm and 50mm. On APS-C size/DX format cameras like Z fc, Z 50 and Z 30, it delivers a 60mm* field of view.
