Melville, NY—Production of Nikkor lenses for Nikon SLRs and compact system cameras reached 70 million; total production of AF-S lenses with the Silent Wave Motor, the ultrasonic autofocus motor developed by Nikon, reached 30 million.
In 1933, the large-format lens for aerial photography was released as the first Nikkor, and SLR lenses continued to evolve based on Nikon technology. In October 2011, the production of Nikkor lenses reached 65 million; Nikon has since developed four compact 1 Nikkor lenses in various colors and FX-format lenses that maximize the performance of Nikon’s D4 and D800/D800E DSLRs.
The Nikkor lineup includes more than 70 lenses, including fisheyes, super wide-angle, super telephoto, zoom, micro and PC-E lenses. nikonusa.com
