I am wondering why Nikon is building lenses with those apertures first, is it a market strategy or is there a reason behind of this?
Here is what I saw on the roadmap:
- 24-70mm f/4 comes first (2018) and then 24-70mm f/2.8 (2019)
- 50mm f/1.8 (2018) and then 50mm f/1.2 (2020)
- A lot of f/1.8 lenses annunced for the 3 first years (35mm, 50mm, 20mm, 85mm, 24mm) and probably we will se wider apertures for those lenses on the future.
Of course there are some exceptions to this behavior, like the 70-200mm f/2.8 and the astonishing 58mm f/0.95 (sadly this last one will be only manual focus).
