TOKYO - Nikon Corporation (Nikon) announces the release of the Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x and Z TELECONVERTER TC-2.0x, two teleconverters for the Nikon Z mount system's full-frame (Nikon FX format) mirrorless cameras.

The Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x and Z TELECONVERTER TC-2.0x are teleconverters that increase the focal length*1 of the main lens by 1.4x and 2.0x, respectively, while making the most of the superior optical performance of NIKKOR Z lenses*2. Use of these teleconverters does not change the minimum focus distance, allowing users to capture their subjects in larger size than with the main lens alone. Furthermore, they consistently utilize the AF and VR performance of the main lens for a comfortable shooting experience. In addition, these teleconverters offer the same superior dust- and drip-resistance*3 as S-Line*4 NIKKOR Z lenses. Also, a fluorine coat that ensures excellent anti-fouling performance is applied to the extreme front and rear lens elements. These factors enable users to concentrate on shooting, even in the harshest environments.

The Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x and Z TELECONVERTER TC-2.0x, which expand NIKKOR Z lens' power of expression in the telephoto range, respond to the expectations of professional and advanced amateur photographers with outdoor photography of a broad range of subjects, including wildlife, landscapes, aircraft, and sporting events.

When the Z TELECONVERTER TC-1.4x is used with the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S, the focal length on the telephoto end is extended to 280 mm. When the Z TELECONVERTER TC-2.0x is used, it increases to 400 mm for significant expansion of this telephoto lens' shooting range. These new teleconverters will also be compatible with applicable interchangeable lenses for Nikon Z mount mirrorless cameras that are planned for release in the future. They are certain to stimulate user creativity by expanding the breadth of imaging expression.

Nikon will continue to pursue a new dimension in optical performance while meeting users' needs, contributing to the development of imaging culture, with the hope of expanding possibilities for imaging expression.
