Certainly seems that we may see a 35mm and 85mm F1.4 or F1.2 this year. Although it will be pricey

I remember there being something written by Nikon stating that f/1.4 would be replaced by the f/1.2

F1.2 are large and heavy. I would only own one, for the speed. Pick the lens that is universal or most important for you. To carry three or or of these lens is large task. Having a good choice of focal lengths is great. I, personally buy mostly for speed. My option. But having choice is all ways good is always good.

No argument. But Nikon isn't going to make an f/1.4

Choice is f/1.8 or f/1.2

The fast 35 prime will be my most-used lens. I’m really hoping for something closer to the size of the Sony GM 35mm f1.4 than the Sigma DG DN 35mm f1.2. I’d give up half a stop to land around 500g instead of 1,000g.
