Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that total production of Nikkor lenses for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras reached eighty million in mid June 2013.
This year, the Nikkor brand also celebrates its 80th anniversary, since the first lens – the Aero-Nikkor 50cm f/4.8 – was introduced in 1933.

Nikon's own high-quality standards are applied to all stages from initial design and development to final product release for design that responds to user needs, and production system and inspections that ensure the superior quality of Nikkor lenses.
