Re: Any info on lens roadmap?

Hi-

Not all patents "come to life." More reliable would be Nikon's announced plans:

"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"
