Who can translate and give us some idea of what is being said?

With a Updated Canon ver II, this Tamron with VR , and then there is the new Nikon D800 with Video

IF, the results on these new lens are better than the Nikon 24-70 f2.8 ... will there be any doubts that a new 24-70 f2.8 needs to be done?

I am a little surprised no Nikon lens that "Really" exploits the 36mp ... and shows what the D800e is fully capable of ... has not been anounced already.

Yes, there are some ... 24 f1.4, 14-24 f2.8 except for the corners
But, nothing up in the •Zeiss ZF.2 25mm f/2.0 (1216 / 1017 @ f/4)
close, so it's possable.

I am a believer that the 24-70 f2.8 "Can" and "Should Be" Upgraded.

To FIX the ZOOM damage issue (zoom lock like the Canon verII) and a higher peak number (for bragging rights) ... and a slightly better performing 24mm for those large Group shots. (maybe if it was 22mm, the 24mm would be better)

Thank you,

HG
