this is the weirdest long thread in a while. if there are NO equivalent lenses, then what is the discussion about?

The point is that there is no free lunch. You always have to sacrifice something (noise performance, DoF control, etc.) t get something in return (less size and weight).

Which is why I don't understand why you hope Nikon will "step it up"

If we take f/1.2 to be practical limit for an AF lens, 1" lenses will never get faster than FF 2.8 and that would obviously be for primes only. If you find yourself bumping into the limits of your system it's probably time to change systems. Mirrorless APS-C isn't that much bigger than 1"
