As you may recall, last week we published a post in which we anticipated the possible specifications of the upcoming Nikon mirrorless camera, model 1 V3, which, will likely replace the current Nikon 1
The news this time is that the Japanese company has patented the optical architecture of a new telephoto lens designed for a camera equipped with a 1-inch sensor, which will possibly be the Nikon 1 V3 we talked about.
This new target is presumably intended to complement the Nikkor 10-30 mm f/3.5-5.6 VR PD that looks like it could go with the new compact system camera. Its focal range is 70-300 mm (190-810mm equivalent in 35 mm) with an f/4.5-5.6 maximum aperture.
In addition, the company said they will use an advanced optics architecture with nanoparticles used in other Nikkor lenses. Nikon will probably present it this month, so maybe they will release their new CSC and the two above objectives together.
