best guess for new Nikkor in 2011
Jul 29, 2011

in the past few years, Nikon had between 6-9 new lenses each year (including updates/replacements, not counting TCs) Nikon has so far launched only 2 lenses in 2011, and it's nearly August, that means anywhere 4-6 should occur very soon, including the rumored 3rd week of August event.

they have nearly revised the entire exotic tele line, launched the holy trinity primes (24/35/85) and the zooms (14-24, 24-70, 70-200), a few low cost f/4 professional zooms (16-35, 24-120 etc), and some DX surprises (40 macro, 85 macro, 55-300 etc)

what's your best guess for their 4-6 lenses? the rumor for the Aug event is FX, so it should be more FX than DX lenses. Is a new AFS 135mm or AFS 14mm in the cards? Would they surprise us and do a DX f/2 wide prime to pair with D400).

personally, i'm crossing my fingers for a AFS for the ENTIRE wide prime line-up (praying for f/2, will settle for f/2.8, and will throw back at Nikon's face if they're f/4). Those AF-D era designs from the 80s and 90s are definitely showing their age. (AFD from the 90s, but kept the same optical formula since AI-S)
