Nikon has patented two new, very bright lenses designed for walkers. What is this glass?
It is no secret that Nikon is working on an advanced lens-maker. It is clear that the segment of these cameras is also attractive to the giants. It has recently been revealed that the Japanese company has patented two new, ultra-compact lenses for full-frame lenses. What is this glass? What is it?One of the lenses is a 52mm f0.9 lens. This will be one of the brightest designs available on the market. Check it out in portraits and wedding reports (if it is equipped with AF in the case of the bridegrooms). The second patented glass is 36mm f1.2 . It will be slightly smaller overall (160mm to 256mm), with a shorter focal length and slightly darker. Still, it is still a very bright model that will have a viewing angle that corresponds to approximately the angles of the human eye. Of course these are just patents, so it is not said that models will go into production and sales . After all, you can draw very concrete conclusions from this. First of all, full – frame mirrors will be very important to Nikon in the near future . This is a segment in which the Japanese will invest to rebuild their position in the market and threaten the hegemon – Sony. In addition, the investment in the bezel is forced by Canon, who also has a snobbery to lead the world among the mirrors. Secondly, Nikon will maintain a separate bayonet for the bezel. This is nothing new, of course, and Nikon did not follow in the footsteps of Canon, which is preparing a full-frame EF-mount mirrorless mirror. Of course, this is not the wrong direction, it's natural. Implementing a bayonet F to a missile lugger would entail major challenges that would not necessarily have been worth it. So they enjoy the plans and activities of Nikon. After the launch of the D850, which has already hit the market, the Japanese are not asleep. This is good news not just for Nikonians. After all, Canon will continue to compete, and in the segment of Sony luster also will not remain indebted. In this arms race we have once again win-win – winners are both manufacturers and users. That's why I am delighted with every novelty on the market. Source: nikonrumors.com , own elaboration
