Nikon 58mm f1.4 lens patent

A new Nikkor 58mm f/1.4 lens is rumored to be announced late tonight, midnight EST. According to French forum pixelistes’s admin, he had a chance to see this new full frame 58mm f/1.4 lens.

Nikkor 58mm f/1.4 Specs:
  • Weigh: 385g
  • 9 elements in 6 groups with a 9-blade diaphragm
  • The price is supposed to be € 1,789 (around $2,400)
  • In stock and shipping on October 31th.

Since Zeiss announced their 55mm f/1.4 high-end lens, it is makes sense for Nikon to release a new high end 50mm  (58mm) lens.
