You, at least, should not be perpetuating the myth prevelent on these forums that you can patent a product. If you read the patent in full you will probably find that what it claims is some new invention in optics applicable to many lenses. The particular application refered to in the patent is there purely by way of illustration of a possible way to implement the invention. The invention may or may not have been made in developing a 100-300mm f/4 lens.

I don't necessarily think he was implying that you could patent a product, just that Nikon may be making this lens at some time.
