Exciting news is buzzing among photography enthusiasts as how2fly, a trusted source for camera updates, recently tweeted that Nikon’s highly anticipated super telephoto zoom lens “Z 200-600mm” is set to be announced soon. While details on the lens are still scant, rumors are swirling that it may be called “NIKKOR Z 200-600mm f/6.3 (non-S-Line)”. As it falls under the non-S-Line category, some are speculating that it could come with a more affordable price tag. However, considering the impressive focal length range of 200-600mm, it may not be surprisingly cheap. The tweet’s mention of “coming soon” has also sparked speculation that further leaks may be imminent, heightening the anticipation for more information on this highly anticipated lens.
