Roadmap for lenses? Thom's comment

"The Future Lenses?

Sept 23 (commentary)--Since Nikon's ultimate product seems to follow closely the patents they've been filing, we can make some guesses at future Nikon 1 lenses:

14mm f/2.8 (35mm equivalent)
18mm f/1.4 (50mm equivalent)
32mm f/1.2 (85mm equivalent)
40mm f/2.8 Micro-Nikkor (105mm equivalent)
60mm f/3.5 Micro-Nikkor (162mm equivalent)
7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 (20-35mm equivalent)
9-43mm f/2.8-5.6 (24-120mm equivalent)

There have been a few other patents for oddball things, and some of the patents obscured format and actual focal length, but these are the ones that seem to best match up against the unmarked lenses Nikon was showing at launch. "

The 32 f/1.2 looks like the perfect portrait lens for the system. The 9-43 is the perfect walkaround zoom. 7-13 is still too long for a WA zoom. Should be 6-12mm (16-32). 60 Micro, very interesting.
