These were my recommendations:

Extend the range to 12-24

Hmm - it's pretty wide on FX already.   I'd hate to see optical compromises made to increase the range.

Improve the T stop

Doesn't bother me at all.   I would think this is a minor issue, unless perhaps for video?

Improve the flare

Major issue there, at least for me.     Not sure what could be done.   It seems mostly prevalent at the wider end, which perhaps just means the hood is actually doing some good on the long end.

Add a chip for in body distortion correction

Sounds like an entire system would need to be developed around that idea.   Both in-camera (for jpgs, tif, or perhaps even video), and some new version of Capture NX2.

I'd like to see some sort of better lens cap.   One that a) doesn't just fall off when you pull the lens out of a camera bag, and b) one that is somehow flat enough to fit in a large pocket.   The lens is hard enough to pack.   That lens cap just adds to the misery.
