Whatever dude, was just pointing out the obvious. If Nikon felt pro users wanted to use DX, I would have expected them to make at least one pro level DX wide prime etc. They have released nor announced anything of the sort. All the good DX lenses were released a LONG time ago.The 18-140 rather than a 16-85 f4 update shows exactly where DX is going.

Sure there is a dearth of pro-level DX lenses, but FX lenses work also very well. And note that Nikon's own press release for the 58/1.4 states:

"Optimized for elite performance in even the most challenging low-light scenarios, the AF-S NIKKOR 58mm f/1.4G sports a unique 58mm (87mm DX-format equivalent) fixed focal length, making it ideal for shooting both flattering portraits, landscapes and street photography. Both FX-format and DX-format shooters will appreciate a wide and fast f/1.4 aperture that helps to ensure professional-grade photos and edge-to-edge sharpness, combined with overwhelming rendering performance."

The price is a bit steep, but I have been dreaming of such a portrait lens for DX ... even though my 17-55 substitutes in a pinch.
