Nikon's upcoming 26mm lens
1

Nikon has a 26mm pancake lens on their roadmap. Any opinions on how it might differ from Z 28mm f2.8 lens?

My own thoughts:

1. It will be f2.8 lens

2. The Z 28mm lens, though made in plastic, has several nice features such as dual focus motors and breathing correction, as well as internal focus mechanism which keeps the lens protected from weather

3. It is likely that this new pancake lens will have a single focus motor and may have retracting design, like the compact Fuji XF27mm f2.8. From silhouette of this lens, it appears that the rear element is recessed as much as is possible on Z mount within safe limits. With such compromises, a compact design is possible

What are the possible reasons this lens might appeal to users?
