We liked reading the news that Nikon has patented 2 Full Frame mirrorless lenses, but what does it mean in the short-term? The long-term? Is this simply a case of Nikon patenting something in order to futureproof themselves? Or are they planning on introoducing one or more full frame mirrorless lens cameras in the future? If the answer is Yes, then when will they hit the market? And how much will they cost?From release/information:
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.
