an extremely expensive lens,

I'd be happy with shortening up the focal length.

50-85mm F2.0 would be a killer portrait/casual zoom, IMO.

As long as it's not a remake of the dreaded Nikkor 43-86mm, I'm in.

But a 50-85mm F/2 lens, although a bit too short for my tastes, would be a nice lens to add to a D700 + 16-35mm F/4 kit...! I could live with the 35-50mm gap: one step foward or back is all it takes to overcome that!

If photography can be considered like painting, then I'm still at the preschool "paint with your fingers" level.
