Having previously apologized for the delay of the 70-200mm f/2.8 Z lens, Nikon Inc. told us that the recently released 120-300mm f/2.8E F-mount lens has also been delayed "as we determine the global impact of the novel coronavirus outbreak."

Nikon Releases $12,000 AF-S 400mm f/2.8E Lens and 1.4x AF-S Teleconverter

Not to be outdone by Canon's lens announcements from yesterday, Nikon has come back with a few major announcements of its own. And foremost among them (at least in terms of price) is a brand new AF-S 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens that will pair very well with the new AF-S TC-14E III teleconverter... well, assuming you have about thirteen grand handy.

Nikon Unveils New AF-S 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6, First Update in Over a Decade

Released in 2001, Nikon's original 80-400mm telephoto zoom lens has consistently made it onto owners' "please update" lists for over a decade. It was the first of Nikon's lenses to feature VR, and though it wasn't without fault, it was a very versatile lens.
