    Can this be true?

    A Nikon lens faster than f/1.2? Here's a patent for an F/0.7 lens.

    I've never heard of one, but I can tell you one thing about patents: just because a patent exists does not mean that a working example was built... and certainly does not mean that an available product ever resulted.

    The +/- range between in and out of focus would be a few centimeters! Wasn't there some kind of military lens f 0.8 from back in the day that someone shot and he/she noted that the eye was in focus but eyelashes were complete blur. I will have to dig up the post, think I saved it in my "fast lens" bookmark folder...

    This lens appears to be designed for the Nikon 1 mirrorless cameras. Even if I shot digital, I don't think I'd buy into Nikon's mirrorless system; it bears too much of a resemblence to the old Pronea APS system

    Zeiss made a special f0.7 lens which Stanley Kubrick adapted for use in the filming of Barry Lyndon so that he could film by available candle light.
