In case you missed it: Nikon Z-mount can support lenses faster than f/0.95

Black Friday is almost over and we can now get back to our regular coverage. The French website Mizuwari  published their interview with Nicolas Gillet from Nikon France from the 2018 Photo Show. There is nothing really new to report here – the same topics have been discussed over and over during the past few months  in other numerous interviews , including the claim that the Nikon Z mount can accept lenses faster than the already announced Z-Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/0.95 lens : “For the record, Nikon’s optical engineers have calculated that the Z mount can accept lenses up to f / 0.65″ Of course, if you are following [NR] on a regular basis, you already know this – Nikon has already confirmed this on multiple occasions

Lensvid interview with Nikon at Photokina (Nikon Z and more)

Lensvid published their interview with Dirk Jasper from Nikon taken during the 2018 Photokina show – their main topic of discussion was of course the new Z mirrorless (more Nikon Z interviews can be found here ): Here is a recap of the interview: Nikon wasn’t willing to state exactly when the work on the Nikon Z started (a good guess would be at least 3 or so years ago) but it did mention that the now discontinued Nikon 1 cameras were indeed the basis for at least some of the technologies we are now seeing in the Z cameras. The upcoming NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct is more of a proof of concept for Nikon to show was this mount could do in terms of image quality and speed (Jasper actually mentioned the Zeiss Otus by name here and suggested that we might see a new fast prime king with this lens). Nikon had endless discussions about changing the mount and although Jasper was not willing to openly state that the large mount was developed to support larger sensors in the future it certainly seems that way from his answer.
