Trouble is there are two sensor sizes DX and FX that makes the lenses behave differently. That 70-200 is particularly useful on DX. 17/18--50/55 & 55/70--200 @ f2.8 would be very handy pairings on DX . Couldn't give a fig if the ranges don't meet in the middle.

I have trouble understanding the need for a 24mm @ f1.4 though. Do people really want landscapes and interiors at f1.4 I wonder?

I am looking for a tack sharp fast prime for landscapes that can accept filters - the 1.4 aperture just 'goes along with the glass' - I don't shoot wide open - although it would be nice to have the ability to do so if necessary (inside of European Cathedral's is a use case that comes to mind).

At this point its down to the Nikkor 24 1.4 or the Distagon 21 2.8 ZF2 (which isn't in stock anywhere) ....
