Nikon announced that as of August 2009 total production of Nikko lenses, interchangeable lenses for Nikon SLR cameras reached fifty million. Total production of Nikko lenses reached forty-five million in August 2008 with production of an additional five million over the past year.

In the fifty years since then, Nikko lenses have been extremely well received by a great number of photo enthusiasts and professional photographers.

The current lineup of more than sixty Nikko lenses for Nikon SLR cameras offers a wide variety of lenses, including fisheye lenses, super wide-angle to super telephoto lenses and micro lenses.
