It seems many people not impressed with Nikon's latest releases want more fast primes rather than new camera bodies . What lens[es] in particular ?

Ultra fast AF-S primes.. along the lines of 90mm f/0.8 :eek:

And ultra wide angle primes.. like a 10mm rectilinear for DX

So what do you want then ?
I would be happy with f4/ or even variable aperture sharp zoom like the canon 24-105 and the 70-200. I could probably carry both those for about the same weight my 80-200 is now.

I don't need fast. I shoot almost always stopped down to f8 or smaller. Weight (less) is important to me.

I'm fine with F2.8-4 and would like to see more in th 70-200 range with closer min focus. Would also be killer to get vr working on moving objects.

Fast primes none of that AFS motor if they're going to be as slow as the new 50 1.4 please, you can't expect people to work with a lens like that !

The most important option is missing from your poll, you should have added "Less Expensive". For most photography enthusiasts, lens prices are becoming prohibitively high.

What lenses do I want from Nikon? well, I'll take any that they want to give to me. But in reality, I just started discovering primes, and how much I love them, although I'll never trade out my 70-300VR, I voted for fast 135 as the one I have is one of my favorite lenses. Making the 70-300VR a constant aperture would be nice (even if only F4) as long as it didn't skyrocket the price.

It looks like a few people would be happy with a few constant F4 zooms .
I wouldn't mind something a little wider than the 35mm F1.8 .

Why is the listing for "Wide Primes" not include the word "fast" when all the other choices do?
