Nikon has announced a roadmap for its Z-mount mirrorless system. All of the lenses are full-frame, with one zoom being the exception.
The roadmap adds a 20mm F1.8, 50mm F1.2 and 105mm ‘Micro’ lens to the high-end ‘S-Line’ of lenses. There will also be a 28 and 40mm lens as part of what Nikon calls a ‘Compact Prime’ series and a non-S 60mm Micro close-up lens.

The ‘S’ line will also gain a 14-24mm F2.8 zoom and a 70-200mm F2.8 for sports and photojournalism. These will be accompanied by a 24-105mm S-line zoom and, while no aperture range has been specified, this is grouped with the existing F4 zooms, An S-line 100-400mm lens is also listed.
A non-S 24-200mm travel zoom and 200-600mm zoom complete the full-frame offerings, giving a pretty comprehensive picture of what Nikon has planned for the Z-mount.
On the APS-C side of things, there will be a 18-140mm (equivalent to 27-210mm), as with the compact primes, no maximum aperture is specified.
No timescales are given for fulfilling the lenses on the roadmap and, as is normal, a footnote indicates that the plans may change without notice.
