New Nikon lens announcement at CP+ (plus a second patent for a 16-35 f2.8 w/VR)

18-35 mm variable - which I assume is geared to the 'value FF' segment ....

Updated patent (original one was in 2011) for a 16-35 f2.8 VR (17-35 replacement):

I really hope this one makes it to production. I can't exactly tell from the schematic whether the front element is threaded or not - also there is a dual-retractable hood element.
