Breaking: Nikon Z30 APS-c Mirrorless Camera and Nikkor Z 400mm f/4.5 Lens Coming Soon

By on

Nikon is rumored to announce a new Nikon Z30 APS-C mirrorless camera soon. According to latest Nikon rumors, this official announcement could also bring the new Nikkor Z 400mm f/4.5 lens that has already been on the latest roadmap.

The new 400mm lens will be part of the Nikon S-line. This means that it will be a very high-performance glass. The Nikkor Z 400mm f/4.5 lens will be very compact with 23cm in length, and 1,250g in weight. This is almost the same size as the Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 (21,98cm, 1,360g) and Nikkor Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 (22.2cm, 1,435g) lenses.

Here are the details from NR. NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S Lens ($13,999.95 at AmazonB&HAdorama).

 Nikon Z30 APS-c mirrorless camera

  • The Nikon Z50 is approaching the end of life – it was announced back in October 2019 and is currently up to $200 off.
  • The new Nikon Z30 APS-C mirrorless camera is rumored to be announced soon, possibly in June (could come together with the Nikkor Z 400mm f/4.5 lens, but I am not sure since I do not have an exact release date yet).
  • The new camera should be called Nikon Z30 (a very low chance to be called Z70).
  • I was told that Nikon is done with the 24MP sensors for both APS-C and full-frame and all future cameras will have larger sensors.
  • New high-end Nikkor Z APS-C mirrorless lenses will also be announced at some point. Those lenses are not part of the current Z roadmap. Maybe we will see high-performance S-line DX-based Nikkor Z lenses?
  • Here are some crazy specs that will probably never happen (got them from a new anonymous source): possible 8k video, 36-46MP sensor, mechanical shutter, IBIS… not happening.

The company offers the Nikon Z50 (B&H Photo Video / Amazon) which is a compact mirrorless camera with an APS-C sensor that uses the company’s Z-mount. It features a 20.9MP BSI CMOS sensor (derived from the D500) with on-sensor phase detection, but not in-body image stabilization like the full-frame Z6 and Z7.
