One can only hope that performance is on par with the Noct-Nikkor 58 1.2

I hope that the Performance is much better as the old Noct and the other blurred @ 1.2 Lenses from Nikon.

It will be better if it is released. However, I have never seen any lens, Nikon or otherwise, truly sharp wide open at f/1.2. That includes the current Canon offerings, the Noct and even the Leica f.95 50mm stopped down to f/1.2. Great creamy bokeh, but not truly sharp.
