New Nikon Lens Predictions?
Jan 19, 2012

I can't remember the last time Nikon released a new camera body and not a new lens on the same day. Since everyone is convinced the D800 is imminent, there must be a new lens release to go along with it (although not necessarily a full frame lens). Any predictions?

My #1 prediction is a 50mm f/1.2G. Nikon doesn't have one and when you look at their prime lineup, there's a big hole price wise at 50mm. The 50mm 1.4g is great, but doesn't ever seem to get the superlative treatment that the 24, 35, and 85 often do.

Second prediction is a G update to the 135DC. I don't think the lens needs updating (or improving) but there has been a consistent stream of D series phase outs.

Anyone else have thoughts on this?
