Why No Nikon f1.2 G Lenses?
Feb 11, 2013

A friend recently upgraded his Canon kit to a 1DX and 50mm and 85mm f1.2 lenses and is now positively snorting his superiority (!) over my D4 and f1.4 primes.  Which got me thinking, Nikon used to produce f1.2's, so why does it now stop at f1.4 for it's current top end primes?
