    what is the ONE lens you want Nikon to make? That they don't already and something reasonable. :wink:

    If I could have one lens, it would be a 24-105 f2.8 AFS VR.

    Who's next?

    That's easy, a 500 f4 VR!
  3. 12-18mm T&S Zoom, but if that's too much to ask for, I'll take an 16mm T&S.

    I would wish for a decent wide angle lens to use on the D2X. Something like a 14/4.0, that would perform like the 28/2.0 AI-S.
  11. 18-200, small, light, sharp at all focal lengths. And for less than $500. :rolleyes: 

    Dream on.

    Easy. I'd purchase a UV-Nikkor 25 mm f/4.5 lens without a second thought even it was $5.000 or more. Or a 8.5 mm f/4 ED DX Nikkor (but rather not another $5.000 lens this time :smile:) . Or how about a 45 mm f/1 lens?

    The simple truth is that it doesn't matter as long as you use your current lenses to get decent photos.
  13. outlandish: 6.5mm f/2.0G ED-IF AF-S DX Rectilinear
    Not so... 16-85mm f/2.0G ED-IF AF-S DX (or maybe a new category of telecentric digital designed lenses for a FF d3F?)
  14. A 1.0 sounds great to me too.
  15. Man, that's pressure.

    13-80 2.8 Dx

    True, but it sure is fun to dream and to see what others dream about.:wink:

    One needed sports lens would be...

    ...a 70-300mm f/2.8 constant aperture zoom with VR, AF-S,and affordable. One current problem with Nikon glass is the lack of a wide-aperture,fast-focusing, "professional" lens that's capable of shooting both outdoor and indoor sports in a 1-Lens ystem approach. The 70-200 VR is simply too short for many sports....and the 300mm and 400mm Nikkor primes are too long and not versatile enough for sports assignments..the zoom is needed many,many times. Sigma's 120-300mm f/2.8 HSM lens is the closest thing now available, but the 120mm long end makes it, well, too LONG for some sports. Sigma's 100-300 f/4 HSM is an acceptable "daylight" lens, but has some problems....focus is not sure enough, aperture's too slow once the sun goes down,and it's too slow indoors in gyms. Nikon's 200-400 AF-S VR is, well,once again, too slow....f/4 just does not cut it. And, once again, 200mm is a uselessly long bottom end. Noi, Nikon needs a high-speed, fast-focusing sports zoom lens. A really capable,quality lens, for sports. Not birds, not wildlife...it needs a wider bottom end, and a longer top end than the 70-200VR.
    Nikon would benefit from a lens lineup shakeup.....the 300 2.8 AF-S-II is a fine sports lens,focuses great, sharp,contrasty, but too LONG. There's a 100mm gap between the 70-200 and the 300 2.8 lenses, necessitating two bodies for a lot of sports (football,soccer,track and field). My objection to Sigma is the focusing direction...manual focusing is needed a lot,even in these days of AF-S.
  18. Nikkor AF-S VR 80-400mm f/4G IF ED around $2,000.

    I'm not asking much, am I...???
  19. -

    How about a fast 70-400 1.4 lens??? Now that is really asking a lot. But who knows what is in the future.
  20. WOW!!! That should weigh at least... :rolleyes:  12Kgs (~6pds)!!!
