Who says Nikon doesn't make a 35/1.4?

Well, they do. It's an old design, but they do make one still:

Or how about a 50mm f/1.2? Ditto.

Nikon has both.

Why not the MF lens forum for this post? Because I have one question. If the current 35/1.4 costs nearly $1200 new, how much will the future AF version likely cost? We know Nikon can't get away with not updating that lens; it's coming. They've filed patents for some designs already.

Does anyone else feel like they're going to go for the older AIS version of these lenses instead of the AF-S versions when they come out? I mean, you can get a used 50mm f/1.2 AIS on nikonians for $500. An AF version will likely cost $1600 or more.
