I would like to clarify what I said above. To start, when I owned a 35mm f/1.8, I loved it's light weight and super sharp images but I just couldn't carry a 35mm lens on my camera all day. I really seldom shoot at just one focal length and 35mm just isn't wide enough for me. I'd rather have my Sigma 10-20 on all day.

That said, if Nikon produced a 16mm f/1.8 that was as lightweight and sharp as the 35mm f/1.8 I owned but have now sold, and it cost in the $200 range, I would buy one. 16mm is wide enough for my needs and losing weight while gaining sharpness is always a good thing.

But if Nikon does produce such a lens, you watch, it will be $500. Not the (more or less) $200 of the 35mm. And my Sigma still rocks.
