From Nikon Rumors:

"...In January Nikon announced the development of the 1 Nikkor 32mm f/1.2 lens (equivalent to 86.4mm in 35mm format, Nano Crystal coating, see patent). The lens has not been officially released, but new press images are already listed on Nikon USA website, even though they are not yet included in the site search or linked anywhere on the main page. Expect this lens to be released soon (price, delivery date, detailed specs..."

I hope the price is reasonable too! The Nano Crystal coating is not just marketing hype either. I recently purchased my first Nikkor lens with the Nano Crystal coating, (60mm f/2.8G ED AF-S Micro-Nikkor),and I am blown away with the micro-contrast. It's the best I have ever seen! Nikon only uses the Nano Crystal coating in their better lenses, so the 32mm f/1.2 lens should be an outstanding lens. Things just keep getting better for the Nikon 1 system!

since it's f1.2 and CX lenses are not faster than FF equivalent lenses in general, I guess it might be pretty expensive. They could also add a f1.8 version later.
