Even relatively new models are being discontinued

Nikon recently moved the AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm f / 3.5-5.6G VR lens to the Discontinued Products section of its website . It was introduced in 2016. The most affordable APS-C zoom lens is used by the manufacturer in kits with entry-level DSLR cameras. The AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm f / 3.5-5.6G VR appears to be the last lens of its kind in Nikon’s catalog, as its successor has not been presented.

Nikon is phasing out SLR lenses

More recently, the AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm f / 3.5-5.6G VR has been followed by models belonging to completely different categories. They all have one thing in common: all of these lenses are equipped with an F mount, that is, they are designed for Nikon SLR cameras.

The list includes AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f / 4G ED VR, AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f / 3.5-5.6G ED VR , AF-S Nikkor 200mm f / 2G ED VR II , AF-S DX Nikkor 16 -80mm f / 2.8-4E ED VR , AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f / 3.5-6.3G ED VR and AF-S DX Nikkor Micro 85mm f / 3.5G ED VR . Noteworthy is the fact that not only APS-C format models (they can be distinguished by the DX symbols in the name), but also full-frame lenses are being discontinued. Moreover, many of them were presented relatively recently, and there is no alternative to most of the discontinued models in the Nikon catalog.

For those following the topic, news of Nikon’s lens line dwindling should come as no surprise. Back in February, it was announced that  Nikon would close two of its three Japanese lens factories .
