I've heard no rumors but I also wish Nikon or any third party manufacturer would come up with a rectilinear wide angle for DX. I'd even be ready to pay more than that if it promised lower distortion, better general IQ and more compactness than my Sigma 10-20mm.

I am trying hard to lighten my photo bag (DX). I would very much like to leave the 12-24mm at home, yet the widest end of the 16-85mm does not always do the job. A Nikkor DX lens somewhere between 12 and 14mm would be a blessing and I would be happy to pay $300 to $400 for such a piece of glass. Even if it had some distortion, that is readily fixed with a computer these days. (Converting an image from the Nikkor 10.5mm fisheye is not so interesting.)

Any rumors?
