Speculation about Nikon’s mirrorless camera ambitions is heating up, and two new patents are adding fuel to the fire. Nikon has patented two new ultra-fast lenses for a full frame mirrorless camera system. One is a 52mm f/0.9 and the other is a 36mm f/1.2.
Nikon Rumors reports that the patents were filed in Japan and that this news bodes well for Nikon photographers who are hoping for a game-changing camera from Nikon.
“Patents are no guarantee for future products, but I think everything so far points to a new full frame mirrorless camera with a new mount that can accommodate a 50mm f/0.9 lens,” Nikon Rumors writes.
