So, what is lacking?

50mm f/1.2 Sharp wide-open AF

That one is not going to happen... The F-Mount is not large enough to accommodate a F/1.2 AF lens... I have the manual focus 50/1.2 AI-S and the rear element is so big that it leaves literally no space for the electrical contacts in the mount: the rear element in a 50/1.2 lens has to be so big that it leaves no space for the contacts...

I agree with you but I think Nikon can redesign a simple 50f1.2. If they use the shell of the 58f1.4, They have plenty of space to put motor (or why not... screw drive) + a retrofocus design.
