Nikon has a new patent for a 75x zoom lens designed for 1″ sensor

Nikon has a new patent for a 7.4-600mm f/2.8-6.3 lens designed for cameras with 1″ sensor (20-1620mm f/2.8-6.3 equivalent) – this is a 81x zoom to be exact (described as 75x zoom in the patent). Maybe this will be for a new super-zoom DL camera similar to the Coolpix P900, but with 1″ sensor. Here are the details:

  • Patent: 2016-156901
  • Published on September 1st, 2016
  • Filed on February 24th, 2015
  • Zoom ratio: 75.5x
