  1. 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 ?
     
  2. Seems like this should be in the 'lens lust' sub-forum?

  3. It's a follow on from "So what do you want from Nikon ?" so I thought it would be appropriate on the same page .

    Fast AF-S Primes:smile:

    and a few more "special" lenses....ala, Noct,28 1.4, etc....
     
  7. I'd still like to see an AF version of the 400 f/3.5. But that is only a wish.

    God Bless,
    David
     
  8. 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

    AIS lenses remade exactly as they were
     
  10. 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.

  13. 35/1.4 & 85/1.4 afs. Maybe also 135/2 afs. NO VR pls.
    That's it for me. The others, Nikon already has in its curent line-up.

    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 !
     
  15. An updated 300 f4 or a 400 f5.6 - quality telephotos more affordable than the f2.8 monsters, drool-worthy though they are...

    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.
     
  17. i would really love a fast 400mm f/1.4 maybe? or something along those lines.

    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.
     
  19. 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?
