Stitzer23: Nikon does not need to lose any sleep. Fast mirrorless lenses still arent cheap.

35mm is the only DX prime, it is basically a zoom lens system. If you want an APS-C system with many primes there's Pentax and Fuji.

It's a bit of a specialist lens. With under 2x zoom and falling in the focal lengths known as "standard" zoom lenses, it hardly replaces a 18-55, it's too big and too heavy especially for APS-C standards. Better think well first before spending the dollars! It will replace a few primes in the same range but should not be very practical for day-to-day shooting, I believe...

D1N0: Great lens but boring bokeh. Lacks character (or you guys are no good at making interesting bokeh shots).

@yabokkie: "Not so good bokeh"? For a standard zoom lens I think it's superb, and at 70mm it's beautiful. Of course, it's not f/1.8, as you know.

JackM: Has Nikon ever made a class-leading camera short of a DSLR? Nikon constantly plays second fiddle to cameras like the Canon S-series and G-series, and the Nikon 1 system is a joke. Now yet again they arrive as an also-ran in this enthusiast compact market - nobody with a brain will choose this camera over the Ricoh GR. I guess Nikon is content to make compacts only for the uninformed.

And the Canon M, isn't that a joke?

I'll get one for walking around the streets, but only IF vignetting is controlled. I had one Voiglander 20mm that vignettes like mad!

Jose Rocha: So, where's the 70-200mm f/4 VR II?

Then show me a link to one of those :)

Stupid decision... how come $1000 is affordable for DX users? And the IQ will be average just like the 18-200 or worse.
