Nikon has already detailed a number of new Nikkor Z lenses it’s working on, but a newly leaked image, believed to be a more extensive lens roadmap, shows a number of additional lenses Nikon allegedly has planned for the future.
The purported roadmap, first shared by Nikon Rumors, shows ten additional lenses not currently shown in the roadmap image Nikon has posted to its website, ranging from fast primes to impressive telephoto zoom lenses.

According to the roadmap, which again hasn’t been confirmed as real, the 2020 lenses Nikon hasn’t detailed on its current roadmap include the Nikkor Z 85mm F1.2 S, Nikkor Z 135mm F1.8 S, Nikkor Z 28-70mm F2.8-3.5 and Nikkor Z 24-120 F4 S. The 2020 lenses already announced include the 20mm F1.8 S, 50mm F1.2 S and 14-24mm F2.8 S.
Moving onto 2021, Nikon has seven lenses listed as ‘TBA’ on its current roadmap. Interestingly, the purported leaked roadmap mentions only six, including the Nikkor Z 28mm F1.8 S, Nikkor Z 35mm F1.2 S, Nikkor Z 65mm F1.8 S and Nikkor Z 105mm F1.8 S.
If the roadmap is indeed real, it seems Nikon is covering a lot of ground with an impressive range of lenses. Interestingly, there doesn’t appear to be any F1.4 lenses, with Nikon instead opting for either F1.8 or F1.2 for its faster primes.
Ultimately, time will tell whether or not the roadmap is indeed real.
