seems you never read Nikon Full Line catalog. they are very
explicit why they do not use fluorite.

one of the issues is the price of lens repair if the lens is dropped.

Nikon has said many things in the past that need to be taken with a
grain of salt.

same as others.

however Nikon does have fluorite, and for many years. they use it
where they think it belongs. NASA seems also to object agains
fluorite elements in lenses. but you know that...

I love it when people bring up the NASA explanation! With all the extremely sensitive instrumentation and experiments being carried up into space, not to mention the delicate human beings being carried up into space (all of which are obviously secured sufficiently to safely survive a trip into space without any damage), they are worried about damage to fluorite housed inside a robust lens housing! Keep in mind, today's space shuttles have cockpits comprised of very large LCD panels that are significantly larger and probably no more robust than the much smaller fluorite element housed deep inside a Canon L lens! I think there are plenty of other things on a space shuttle that would suffer damage long before a fluorite lens element would.
