This is a reference article with all of Nikon’s current lens discounts, plus my thoughts on which deals are the best! Nikon just announced some major sales covering both Z-mount and F-mount lenses, up to $300 off for the holiday season.

As the dust settles on Nikon’s huge spate of announcements this morning – two lenses, a developed lens, a new FTZ adapter, a new roadmap, and their highest-end camera ever – I’d like to put some of my thoughts to paper about the releases. Good and bad, what do these announcements say about Nikon’s future?
Now that Nikon’s Z9 has launched into the mirrorless world, the biggest question is how it stacks up against the competition. And while it’s a seriously impressive camera, the same can be said about other cameras on the market today. Perhaps the biggest competitor to the Nikon Z9 is the Sony A1.
The Nikon Z9 has just been announced, and it’s nearly certain that it will be backordered and out of stock for a while – especially since the $5500 price is lower than expected. You can always cancel a pre-order, but if you’re even thinking about the Z9, you should order it soon. Here are the links:
Now that Nikon has formally announced the Nikon Z9, let’s take a look at how its specifications stack up against those of the Nikon D6, the previous flagship camera in Nikon’s lineup.
It wouldn’t be a Nikon announcement day without at least one development announcement! This time it’s for the long-awaited 400mm f/2.8 telephoto prime. Nikon says this lens will have a built-in 1.4x teleconverter, turning it into a 560mm f/4.
Alongside the years-in-the-making announcement of Nikon’s flagship Z9 mirrorless camera, the company also unveiled two lenses from the Z-series roadmap: a Nikon Z 24-120mm f/4 S and a Nikon Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S. Nikon says the two lenses will be available within this year.
On March 10, 2021, Nikon announced they were developing a flagship mirrorless camera. More than seven months later – after wild speculation, occasional leaks, and a handful of official teasers – the Z9 has been formally announced. And judging by what we know so far, this is a beast of a camera.
Now that Sony has announced the A7 IV, a lot of photographers are wondering what it brings to the table compared to the previous generation A7 III. Sony is still selling the A7 III new ($2000, compared to $2500 for the IV), which adds to the confusion.
This morning, Sony announced the newest camera in their venerable A7 series, the A7 IV. Positioned near the middle of Sony’s camera lineup, the A7 IV tells us a lot about where Sony sees itself – and even the rest of the camera industry – trending over the next few years.
