NIKKOR interchangeable lens reaches total production milestone of 90 million
Nikon Middle East FZE has hit a milestone achievement of 90 million in total production of NIKKOR lenses for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras. The milestone, officially reached at the end of October 2014, is also accompanied by the equally momentous 50 million total production mark for NIKKOR lenses equipped with the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) technology. In 1959, Nikon (then Nippon Kogaku K.K.) released the Nikon F as well as its first NIKKOR lenses for Nikon SLR cameras, including the NIKKOR-S Auto 5cm f/2. The NIKKOR tradition henceforth actively continued over the years with advanced optical technologies deployed onto its lenses and consequently expanding its lineup of interchangeable lenses for the Nikon 1, Nikon’s Advanced Cameras with Interchangeable lenses first released in October 2011.
