Voigtlander NOKTON 55mm f/1.2

Announced: new Voigtlander NOKTON 55mm f/1.2 SLIIs lens for Nikon F-mount

Another lens with classic Nikkor styling. It has 7 elements in 6 groups without mention of any special ED or aspherical lenses so is probably a normal double-gauss design. I wonder how it compares to their NOCTON 58mm f/1.4 or the Nikon AIS 50/1.2.

Sigma also announced that their three APS-C f/1.4 primes to Z-mount: 16/1.4, 30/1.4 and 56/1.4.

The news hasn't yet posted on Cosina's official website.  I'm looking forward to see the cross-section of the optical design to see (if possible) how they could put the contact to this f1.2 lens.  :)

Thank you for sharing!
