I know there are many out there in a huff over Nikon not having a FF option like Canon, but personally as an amateur I would much rather see the smaller sensor taken advantage of to make us some smaller, lighter, and cheaper versions of some of the pro glass out there. OK, not pro glass, but, take the 18-200VR as an example. It's almost exactly the same size as the 24-120VR, but covers a much greater range with more advanced VR and with higher quality (at the expense of the pocket book). 17-55 f2.8 DX with crop factor covers a greater FoV then the equivalent 28-70 f2.8 on a FF, weights 6oz lighter (20% lighter!), takes up less volume, and is consistently $100-200 cheaper from all the online vendors. Imagine if they came out with a DX version of the 70-200VR f2.8 that would be 20% lighter (almost 1/2 lb!!!) and cost a couple of hundreds less then the FF version of a 70-200vr. Smaller, lighter, cheaper versions of the FF lenses we love... my shoulders would love to see some of that come to fruition.
