Still no DX wide angle prime from Nikon... this is just getting silly
Sep 24, 2012

With another Photokina I am truely speechless that Nikon has still failed to release a simple DX wide angle prime.

This has been one of the most requested lenses for YEARS. Additionally, from a design point of view, this is NOT that difficult to design with the current CAD systems. A 16mm f2.8 DX would not be difficult design or manufacture.

It must be either lack of desire or lack of enthusiasm on Nikons part for DX. I look at how companies like Olympus and Panasonic are able to pump out VERY nice lenses at a steady rate to fill out a complete system and it makes Nikon look silly.
