Nikon Launches Its Nikon 1 Range

The First Four Lenses in the new 1 NIKKOR Series

The Nikon 1 advanced interchangeable-lens camera system is a new digital camera system that proposes new forms of imaging expression and enjoyment. Cameras in this new system utilize the new Nikon 1 lens mount system, which supports the new 1 NIKKOR brand of interchangeable lenses. The first four lenses released for this new system are the VR 10-30MM F/3.5-5.6, 1 NIKKOR VR 30-110MM F/3.8-5.6, 1 NIKKOR 10MM F/2.8 and 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100M F/4.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM.

The new 1 NIKKOR brand of interchangeable lenses continues in the tradition of the Nikon F mount, which has a history that goes back more than half a century. 1 NIKKOR lenses employ the new Nikon 1 mount, and are developed for use with Nikon 1 cameras. These lenses support Nikon's new CX format, which adds a new imaging format to the existing Nikon FX and DX formats. They are compact and lightweight for superior portability, have a simple design that is well suited to that of Nikon 1 cameras, and are available in a variety of colors.

The 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30MM F/3.5-5.6, 1 NIKKOR VR 30-110MM F/3.8-5.6, 1 NIKKOR 10MM F/2.8 and 1 NIKKOR VR 10-100M F/4.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM lenses released under the 1 NIKKOR brand offer optical performance optimized for the Nikon 1 system for sharp rendering in a compact size.
