Nikon says that the lens is equivalent to a 35mm lens on a full framed camera or 87mm on a crop body. The lens elements feature Nikon's Nano Crystal coating which prevents ghosting and aids in blocking out flairs. Focusing is handled via Nikon's Silent Wave motor which provides silent operation, something that is required when shooting video. The Nikkor 58mm f/1.2 will retail for $1700 later this month.
