The 70-200 has some vignetting and lack of edge sharpness on a FX body. Maybe they fixed that. If so then I will be saving up for one and selling my old 70-200Agree with Howard.. I don't get this at all. Isn't the 18-200 VR II already? And the 70-200 is already a super fine lens, what is there to improve? There are many other lenses that they can improve upon.. like the 80-400 for instance.
There's also a rumor about the new 85mm 1.4 "G" but it wasn't mentioned if it's an AF-S. If this is true then I'm VERY excited about it. Will it be better than the original cream machine? I guess we'll find out soon..
... this is why Nikon made the newer semiprofessional/professional cameras compatible to Ai/Ais lenses...OMG enough already with the 18-... lenses, how many does one need ? :actions1:
Some really fast primes and I'll be happier :wink:
i wonder if you can order the rubber band separately and will the new rubber band work with old 18-200 or will there be an old and new rubber band:smile:I heard that the new 18-200 comes with a rubber band to keep it from creeping. And the 70-200 will only have a price adjustment to the point where demand reduced to balance with production capacity.
I love rumors!
