nikon-lens-patent-for-78x-zoom
Nikon has a new patent for a 4.3-357mm f/2-6.5 VR lens designed for cameras equipped with 1/2.3" sensor (24-2000mm equivalent). There is a good chance that this lens could be used in the replacement of the popular Nikon Coolpix P900 camera ($529). For comparison, the P900 has a 4.3-357mm f/2.8-6.5 lens - the zoom will basically remain unchanged, while the aperture on the wide end will change from f/2.8 to f/2. Additional patent information:
