It seems as if we've known about the Nikkor Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct lens for practically years now, but today we finally have some solid specs – and they don't disappoint. Positioned at the very top of Nikon's premium mirrorless 'S' line, the Nikkor Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct is designed to flex the sheer optical power that Nikon is capable of. 

Inspired by the 1977 AI Noct Nikkor 58mm f/1.2 standard prime lens, this latest iteration of the Noct has a maximum aperture of f/0.95, which is the fastest in Nikon history. Once you delve into the specs for the Noct, you can see that this is a piece of glass designed to inspire lens-envy in every photographer (and perhaps even a couple of other manufacturers too).
