This video was created documenting the history of Nikon's development:
In 2016 Nikon reached the mark of 100 million Nikkor Lenses manufactured. From the first NIKKOR 50mm f/2 in 1959 to the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm F2.8E FL ED VR and the widest perspective control lens in the world, the Nikon PC Nikkor 19mm F4E ED, Nikon holds roughly 190 lenses in its lineup. In comparison, Canon's lineup only includes 93 lenses. Nikon also has the only lens to use Phase Fresnel Lens elements, and the first Macro lens with Vibration Reduction technology. Nikon also owns 6 of the top 14 cameras of 2016 and 2 of the top five lenses. In comparison, the next biggest brand also has 2 in the list, but one of the lenses is a kit lens that feels very poorly built.
