Behold Nikon's next DX lens:

Another 18-xxx zoom

6.3 on the far end of the zoom

9oz lighter

no distance scale

so now we have:

18-55 (3 versions)

18-70

18-105

18-135

18-140

18-200 (2 versions)

18-300 (2 versions)

Is Nikon really that scared of making another DX prime?

Whats next, the 18-400 f4.5-f8?
