I have been selected by NPS to give my views on the 14-24. Apparently by random selection.

This may indicate a refresh is on the cards.........

These were my recommendations:

Extend the range to 12-24

Improve the T stop

Improve the flare

Add a chip for in body distortion correction

My recommendation to them would be to redesign the 14mm f2.8 and 20mm f2.8 in MF editions with real DOF scales on them and infinity lock, apply nano to reduce flare further (it's miles better that the stupid zoom anyway) and redesign  the hoods on both...  CPU so that there would be no need to access non-cpu data would be nice too... If they would then add some more new AI-S with CPU... 24mm f2, 28mm f1.8 & 35mm f1.7... that would be a dream..!  As for the zoom...  I wouldn't care much! ...Sold it 6 months ago and never looked back!
