The next Nikkor Z 35mm S-line lens will be f/1.2 (plus new drawings of upcoming lenses)

I received a tip confirming that the next Nikkor Z 35mm S-line lens that was recently added to the roadmap will be f/1.2. You can also kind of guess that by the size and shape of the lens drawing that was recently uploaded to the Nikon USA website (see screenshot above). Here is a mockup of the Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.2 S lens:

The upcoming Nikkor Z 85mm S-line lens is also rumored to be f/1.2 (see patent):

Here are the latest drawings of all upcoming lenses (click for a larger view):
