There are at least 11 Nikon Zoom lenses that start with a wide angle in the 14-18mm range (yawn). This includes the DX lenses. VR? In that FOV range, not important. Varible aperture? That's exciting...not! This is just a redo of the non AF-S model they currently have in their catalogue. Excited about an up grade that gives you unnecessary VR, and AF-S, that should have been in the first model; and yet takes away internal focusing? No. I 'll stay with my trusty 17-35 2.8, that is 12 years old thank you.
