New Patent: Nikon 35mm f/2 Lens for Full Frame Camera with Curved Sensor

Nikon recently filed a new patent for Nikon 35mm f/2 lens designed for full frame camera with curved sensor. The patent, P2017-125904A, was spotted by the Japanese blog An Image on a Sensor. “Because the sensor is curved, the angle of view is slightly wider than the plane sensor,” An Image on a Sensor writes.

But, “the patent does not provide sufficient technical information to determine if this is a mirrorless or a DSLR lens,” Nikon Rumors writes.

“A curved sensor would allow to design more compact lenses (or faster at same size) compared to classic lenses designed for flat sensors. At the same time the images are equally sharp from center to the edge with no vignetting” Mirrorless Rumors writes.

About two weeks ago Nikon’s President Mr. Kazuo Ushida confirmed in an interview that they are working on a brand new mirrorless camera, which will be unique and different from other companies in terms of performance.

And later, Nikon corporate officially confirmed that they are currently developing new mirrorless cameras (from DPReview):

“While details are confidential, we can say that we are currently developing new mirrorless products that build upon Nikon’s strengths, and offer the performance prospective customers expect, including the ultimate optics performance, image-processing technologies, strength and durability, and operation.“

In addition, Nikon D820 (D810 replacement) DSLR camera is rumored to be announced on July 25, 2017 (the day of Nikon’s 100th anniversary) with a brand new 46.5MP full frame image sensor.

The Nikon’s 100th Anniversary will take place on July 25 and maybe Nikon will bring us a big big surprise!
