The next Nikon announcement: new Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.4 S-line lens coming very soon

A new Nikon Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.4 S-line mirrorless full-frame lens is expected/rumored to be officially announced very soon. We may even see an announcement next week. I already reported that a new 35mm lens will be introduced together or shortly after the Z6 III camera. I think that this new Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.4 is the rumored Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.2 S-line lens from the latest roadmap. Here again is what I reported a few weeks ago:

  • Nikon decided to change the design of the Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.2 S-line lens. That means we may get a lens with a different aperture – maybe f/1.1 or f/1.4.
  • I was told that the main concerns Nikon had were the size and the price of the initially planned Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.2 S-line lens.
  • There is a very low chance that the new 35mm f/1.2 will be a Plena lens.
  • Some rumors indicate that the 35mmm f/1.2 lens will be announced together or shortly after the Z6 III.
  • It seems that Nikon had issues with one of the lens elements of the Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.2 lens.
  • Nikon is considering to release also new 35mm f/1.4 and 50mm f/1.4 lenses.

What happened with the Nikon Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.2 S-line lens?

Update: Canon recently announced a new RF 35mm f/1.4L VCM lens, so Nikon following makes sense:

The new Canon RF 35mm f/1.4 L VCM video-only aperture ring limitation for photography, will not apply to future camera models
