Nikon 1 Updated 10mm f/2.8 and 10-100mm f/4-5.6 Lens Patents

Nikon-1-10-100mm-and-10mm-Lens-Patents

A pair of recently published patent applications reveal updated versions of the Nikon 1 10mm f/2.8 lens and the Nikon 1 10-100mm f/4-5.6 VR lens.

The 10mm f/2.8 patent was filed back in March, while the 10-100mm f/4-5.6 VR lens patent was filed in late April. These are probably a couple of the more popular 1-Series lenses, so a replacement at some point makes sense.

As always, don’t take a patent filing as evidence of an impending announcement. It’s just something to keep on your radar.

When Nikon announced its new AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR lens earlier this month, it was supposed to ship by late August. Now, Nikon Japan is saying that the lens is being delayed with an official released date in October 2015.

No real details for the cause of the delay were released other than the expected comments about “final adjustments” in the lead up to the launch. You can still pre-order the new lens here at B&H Photo.
