What new FX/DX Lenses would you like Nikon to produce?

  • In FX -

Nikon's super zooms are already pretty good.
I would argue that they mainly need to update a few of the zooms with VR.
Plus, they need to seriously consider making more F4 zoom lenses.

In this economy, those would sell like hot cakes, for the price and perhaps weight.

In regards to primes, they are missing a few holes on the wide side and telephoto.

  • In DX -

DX needs serious work. If Nikon is not going to concentrate on weight size reduction in lens design, they may as well start making more lenses and focal lengths, which are suitable for FX and DX. The biggest glaring hole is no wide primes. There is only one pro grade DX lens.

My vote would be for the following updates:
1) FX 70-200 f4 Zoom with VR
2) FX 24-70 f2.8 Zoom with VR
3) FX 18mm f2.8 or f4 Prime
4) FX 28mm f2.0
5) FX 135mm f2.0
6) Updated Macro Lenses... Any suggestions?

7) DX 16mm f2.0 Prime
8) DX 24mm f2.0 Prime
9) DX 17-55 f2.8 with VR
10) DX 50-200 f4 with VR
11) DX 16-85 f4 with VR

Do you think any of these may become reality?
I fear the manufacturing resources of Nikon are quite limited.
The also have a lot work to do on CX, but that is another issue.
