Well, if this isn’t a bit of humble-bragging, I’m not sure what is. Nikon has filed a new patent that describes Nikkor Z 35-50mm f/1.2 and Nikkor Z 50-70mm f/1.2 lenses. Yes, that’s right, zoom lenses. With a constant f/1.2 aperture. But it’s unlikely that Nikon will ever actually make them. If they did, they’d be insanely expensive.
According to Asobinet, the patent was first filed back in January 2019, but it’s only just been issued this week. It feels like they’ve filed the patents just because they can. To show off what the Z mount is hypothetically capable of rather than as a real genuine product that they plan to bring to market. But oh boy, I wish they would!
