    Nikon 1 NIKKOR 32mm f/1.2 Officially Announced

    The 1 NIKKOR 32mm f/1.2 has been officially announced with a shipping date of June 13, 2013.

    The technical specifications are appealing: 86mm FX equivalent, Nano coating, fast at f/1.2 and Silent Wave Motor. I was seriously considering this lens until the list price was revealed: US$$899. Based on the specs that were previously available and speculating based on the list price of the amazing Nikon 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8 (US$189) and Nikon 1 NIKKOR 10mm f/2.8 pancake (US$249), I anticipated a price near US$500. This pricing shocks me. The only way I could see personally buying this lens is if the next iteration of the V series is good enough that I would consider replacing my DSLR. I don't see that happening anytime soon.

    Wow that is a lot of money. It is a lot of lens, but the price shuts me out. Let me know how you like it Eduard.
