Nikon has announced a waterproof housing and a more compact retractable zoom lens – the Nikkor1 11-27.5mm F3.5-5.6.
It is smaller than the existing 10-30mm kit zoom. Nikon US suggests it might appeal to people who bought a kit with just the 10mm prime lens. The WP-N1 underwater housing offers full access to the 1 J1 or 1 J2’s buttons and dials, while providing protection to depths of 40m/130ft. It will be available from September for around $749.
