I've thought of just using the 35 1.8 in DX crop mode, since 6mp would be big enough for most of the things I would shoot with it.

Really hoping Nikon would just release a 35mm 1.4 AF-S...hmmmmm....
That's silly to use a DX lens exclusively in crop mode, it's a waste if you just have an FX camera IMHO

And interestingly enough, Nikonrumors.com recently reported a rumor of a new Nikon 35mm f1.4 lens: http://nikonrumors.com/2009/08/16/need-help-from-france-and-the-uk-nikon-d700x-nikkor-35mm-f1-4.aspx

You can use it in the FX mode, you'll get some small vignetting, and I mean really small from what I've seen on the net, it can take pictures with D3X in FX mode, so...

I for one Im sick of waiting. So yesterday I went and looked at some Canon primes, 24 1.4 L version 2 and the 85 1.2 Version 2. OMG. Simply amazing is all I can say. Iv tested the 85 1.2 before but the Canon was 24 1.4 L 2 was really more than I expected. Inside it was really sharp wide open and out side pointing right at the sun it didnt even flare. Very impressive. I really hope the rumors of fast primes are true but,..... come on already. How long do you expect us to wait nikon?
