Nikon UK - 58mm / f0.95s noct

Impressive indeed but short of 8k for a reference lens with limited utility. If I am not mistaken Nikon stated that aspherical elements are ground polished rather than mass produced press moulded thus eliminating onion rings in OOF highlights, as evidenced in sample pictures.

Back to reality. If I am to contemplate 2kg lens regardless of the focal length it would have to be autofocus as most of my shooting is done away from tripod. My least used manual focus lens is also about 2kg, APO Telyt R 280mm f4. Perhaps shorter FL would get more use, maybe time to consider part exchange, add kidney or two as I paid paltry 1800 quid for secondhand APO Telyt.
