They should get back to their roots

Nikon once made excellent 120 RF camera lenses for other camera manufacturers; my old Plaubel Makina 670 with a Nikkor 80mm f/2.8 produces sharper images than a lot of the newer Fuji, Mamiya, Pentax, Schneider and Zeiss MF lenses I've owned.

Nikon produced some of the finest LF lenses till just a few years ago; I still use Nikkor 120 SW and 150 SW lenses for 8x10 work.  They also made some of the finest enlarging lenses; the 105 Apo El-Nikkor was considered by many to be the best MF enlarging lens ever made.
