    The mount diameter the Nikon has is not an impediment to making super speed lenses, although that is an often-repeated myth. The Leica M mount has been the target of many superspeed wide-angle and normal lenses within the past decade. The new Nikon Z mount is quite a bit larger than the new Canon RF mount and Nikon has released some patent designs for super speed lenses. The problem comes with actually getting decent pictures from such lenses. And with increasing sensor quality and better and better High ISO performance, there is very little needed these days wider than F / 1.4..

    LoL, Derrel, I forgot to qualify my answer but I don’t count all those useless, crappy ole manual focus jobbies that only a stuffy old Landscaper could love!!! LoL
    What lenses has Nikon ever made that was faster than 1.4 and was AF?
    Only until recently that ML has come into existence have companies made faster than 1.2 AF lenses because all the ML cameras have mounts wide enough, al la Canon!!!

    Once again the mount with is not the limiting factor in designing a high-speed lens, it is proven by the many high-speed lenses that are available for the Leica M-mount.

    Sorry to burst your bubble again. You are of course free to continue deluding yourself if it makes you feel better.

    Your allegation that the mount diameter somehow limits the speed of lenses is kind of cute. Lens designs are often made for company bragging rights, both for the company that makes the lens and for users...kind of like big, jacked-up pickup trucks....

    Thank you. This is the best price I found and bought some lens from them before. They are in Canada.
