Nikkor Micro 37mm f/2.4 lens patent for Nikon’s mirrorless cameras

Another Nikon patent (2012-220828) for a new Micro (macro) 37mm f/2.4 lens designed for 1" sensor (Nikon 1 mirrorless cameras) was recently filed in Japan:

  • Focal length: 37.1mm
  • Aperture: 2.40
  • Angle of view (2ω): 24.7°
  • Image height: 8.18mm
  • Lens length 70.20mm
  • Back focus: 14.13mm
  • Lens design: 14 elements in 10 groups, one low-dispersion glass
  • 1.01 times maximum magnification
Currently Nikon doesn't have a macro lens in their Nikkor 1 lineup, even though they have shown two different prototypes in the past:

Nikon 1 super telephoto zoom, macro and wide-angle zoom lens prototypes

Nikon 1 macro, wide-angle zoom and normal prime lens prototypes
