Nikon has certainly rolled up sleeves as these new patents appear.
Suddenly, the 105mm f/2 VR patent made me lose interest in the 85mm f/1.4G.. anyone else having similar symptoms? For me the thing with 85mm is that it has always seemed just a bit too short for my shooting purposes and then again a 105mm with VR could be just the thing.
And knowing the AF-S 50mm 1.2G is going to come as well, I can hardly wait. I truly hope the new 50mm is going to set new standards for low light photography at large apertures.
I hope a decent AF-S 20mm f/1.8 is on the Nikon to-do list as well. Would be very useful.
