Just when we thought phase fresnel was awesome ... What a revolution ! Flat lenses from nanotechnology !

Imagine lenses with 5% of current weight !! and maybe 20-50 % of current lengths and At least 1 stop in aperture improvement ! !!

Would be amazing with the onset of the mirror-less era. This enables whole new design concepts for cameras !!

    So many great ideas.....and when I see the 800mm f/5.6 in a size of a 50mm f/1.4 Summilux, and with better resolution....if that is possible...LOL....then I will get excited.

    The front element would still be the same diameter :-) but you could probably hand hold it :-) . At about 1 lb :-) would be the heaviest nikkor lense.
