Does anyone else think the R&D for the 32mm 1.2 might be used for a new FX NOCT lens? :wink:
I don't think so. A lens around 50mm will require a completely different design from the ground up, they won't be able to reuse anything from this one. Not to mention it's a very different image circle. What they might use from this lens is the pricing strategy. Given that this lens costs almost 5x as much as the 18.5/1.8 lens, we can estimate that a new Noct would cost 5x the price of the 28/1.8 lens, which comes to $3500.
