My guess is that they will be spending more R&D money on S lenses for a while.

I am waiting to see images made with this new 0.95 58 mm lens at max aperture. It is going to take some skill and patience to make the most of it.

For now, I am impressed with the 50 f/1.8 S and the 35 f/1.8 S. I will more than likely get the 85 f/1.8 S when it ships this summer.

Now I do remember that lens existing in AI mount. I have yet to meet anyone who has it. Wonder who will buy this updated version.
According to Roland Vink’s Nikon Lens Database, the 58mm f/1.2 Noct AI lens was made between Feb 1977 and November 1981. The AIS version was made between Nov 1981 and 1998.

If you search the forums here on the Cafe you will find many references to it. Here is a review from Photography Life of a later AIS version. Nikon Noct-NIKKOR 58mm f/1.2 Review - Photography Life
