Just entered the Nkon camp with D800E. What I miss in the Nikon lens line is a

wide and ultra wide 2.8 or 3.5 lens with top IQ, high microcontrast, distortion wel controlled and sharp corners for landscape photography. Close focussing ability

14/2.8g or 14/3.5g
15/2.8g or 15/3.5g

Also miss a more affordable and lightweight high quality 400mm like
400mm/5.6, VRII, nano coating, weather proof
eventually with new TC 14E III

I would choose the 400/5.6 vrII prime anytime above a zoom in that range.

Just use the 14-24 f/2.8. It's not small, but it's sharper than Canon's short primes. Not to mention Nikon's short primes.


no its not
