Ever wonder why Nikon doesn't have f/1.2 AF lenses and Canon does?

No but I wondered why Nikon has nothing like the MP-E 65

There was a thread regarding this here on DPR, within the past five years. Keep in mind that the MP-E 65mm, even on Canon cameras, cannot focus to infinity, and is normally used on a focusing rail. This is not really for chasing bugs around the garden.

As a Nikon shooter I never really looked in to this lens but found the range interesting.  I didn't realize that its maximum focus distance was about 4 inches.

Given that, and the price, using a 60mm Micro-Nikkor for up to 1:1 and putting it on a bellows is an excellent solution.
