Drawing inspiration from the Nikkor brand’s 90-year history and its technological advancements, Nikon remains committed to contributing to the development of imaging culture, with the hope of expanding possibilities for imaging expression.

The Nikkor Brand

Nikkor’s 90-year history began in 1932 with the registration of the Nikkor trademark by Nikon (then Nippon Kogaku K.K.). The company followed up in 1933 with the introduction of Aero-Nikkor aerial photographic lenses.

“Nikon stands out as one of the world’s few manufacturers that begins its manufacturing process from the production of optical glass. From the initial design and development to the production and final inspection, the entire process leading to the release of a Nikkor lens is managed in accordance with Nikon’s own strict quality standards. This commitment to excellence is the foundation for the exceptional optical performance and superior quality of Nikkor lenses,” the company announced.

What’s more, over the years, Nikon has developed lenses that feature the cutting-edge optical technologies of the time. Consequently, Nikkor has grown as a globally recognized brand renowned for its high-performance lenses.

Nikkor F lenses, throughout their legacy of more than half a century since their initial introduction in 1959, have also continually incorporated the cutting-edge technologies of the time. These technologies include aperture control, autofocus as well as vibration reduction (VR) image stabilization.

Additionally, Nikon designs Nikkor Z lenses for use with Nikon mirrorless cameras for which it adopted a new mount with the largest diameter in the industry. The adoption of this new mount unlocked further possibilities in lens design. A wide variety of specialized Nikkor Z lenses that support users’ creative imaging expression have been released. Notable is the high-performance flagship Nikkor Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct. This lens achieved a milestone as the fastest lens in Nikon history with an aperture of f/0.953.
