Now, which is which do you think?

Come now, I've been talking about Sigma's 12-24 for a while. I shoot FX.

that was meant as a rhetorical question. and as a example of my price-equivalent observation.

I think a modestly priced 24/2 DX is not only feasible and sought after, but also essential for nikons DSLR consumer business.

My point was not so much as whether or not it is feasible but was it needed. We have a 24 f/2.8 now. It's a little tiny thing and pretty cheap. Any update is liable to be FX to gain AFS. Why bother with something between f/2.8 and f/1.4 when we're covered there?

what was the point of the 35/1.8 DX? the answer is right there.

Besides, really and truly, I think Nikon will be trending more and more to FX over the years.

yes. perhaps nikon already gave up this segment and is betting on the 1 system horse in the consumer race.

This is my very personal opinion obviously, and I could totally be wrong.

this goes for me too, and pretty much everyone on these boards. we shouldn't need to apologize for having an opinion!
