Nikon will allegedly announce a new Z-NOCT-NIKKOR 58mm f/0.95 lens soon. The high-performance bright prime lens is rumored to be announced with the Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 full frame mirrorless cameras on August 23rd or a later date.
Nikon has filed a new trademark called “NOCT” in Europe for cameras and lenses back in May, 2018. Now we see that this trademark “NOCT” is for the upcoming Nikon full frame mirrorless cameras.
In addition, it is worth remembering Nikon’s two lens patents in 2017. These are the Nikon 52mm F0.9 and 36mm F1.2 lenses designed for Nikon FF mirrorless cameras. We think the 52mm patent application has turned into the Z-NOCT-NIKKOR 58mm f/0.95 lens. So in the future Nikon’s NOCT lens range can include a Z-NOCT-NIKKOR 36mm f/1.2 lens.
Z-NOCT-NIKKOR 58mm f/0.95 Lens Coming Soon
Z-NOCT-NIKKOR 58mm f/0.95 lens will be the fourth Z-mount full frame mirrorless lens. The previous three Z-mount lenses are:
- Z-NIKKOR 24-70mm f/4 Lens
- Z-NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8 lens
- A wide-angle prime Z-mount lens: could be Z-NIKKOR 24mm f/1.8 lens or Z-NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8 lens or Z-NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8 lens
There will be more Z-mount lenses coming in next several months, Nikon will also concentrate on high-end prime lenses, so expect more NOCT lenses in the future.
