Prosume Primes?
Apr 29, 2011

Just wondering if there any rumours of Prosumer primes coming out? Right now Nikon has their line of amazing 1.4 primes, but are there any rumours of something a little less... ridiculous?

I think it'd be great if they brought out some new FF f1.8 or f2 primes priced closer to $500. It has to be doable. I know there is the 35/2 out right now but this seems a little dated (although I've never tried it).

Ideally I'd be down for a 50/1.2 (I'd be willing to pay more for that), a FF 35/1.8 (very unlikely with the DX one out there I know) and a 28/2 or 28/1.8, with magnesium build. Something halfway between goldring than 50/1.8 and 35/1.8 that are currently available. More in line with the 24-120/4.

Any rumours for this kind of stuff? Any one else want something simlar?
