Nikon is reconsidering the idea of full frame lenses, according to what they said at Photokina we will be able so see a nikon FF in the not-so-distant future.

You're making the assumption that full frame 35mm (format) is the
future? Then why have we had developments like APS and more
recently digital standards like 4/3 with smaller formats? The
general trend for technology is to get smaller - look at mobile
phones. In a few years your full frame 35mm DSLRs may be looked at
as medium format is today, i.e. niche. and be priced accordingly.

Canon's representative seems to see a bright future for EF-S
lenses. It does not make me too happy - I use my film camera quite
a bit (intend to buy full frame DSLR as soon as the cost becomes
reasonable) and will buy only "full frame lenses". I am afraid that
there will be fewer new, "normal" lenses available.
