A bird in the hand...

Nikon have filed a lot of lens patents. Some of those will never see the light of day, others will take years to see fruition. Just look at how long it took the 70-200 f/4 to come out.

Also, there's no guarantee that the 135 f/1.8 will be a great lens, or will be as good as the DC. And worse case scenario: you but it and the 135 f/1.8 is released shortly after. So now you have an excellent lens with solid resale value. Sell it and get the new one...

thanks paulski66 ....your advice sound very logic

btw i have sigma 150mm macro do u think is it comparable in performance to  the 135mm f/2 dc for portrait
