my guess... you're close

Aerial could certainly lend itself to VR. Assuming this is the real hood for the lens (and not intended to simply mask some of the optic, my wild guess is a 35mm f1.4 AF-S with VR.

Since it doesn't cost anything to make a wild- ss guess, here's mine:

  • lens hood shape (it's shallow!) suggests wide angle lens

  • lens length (it's longer than a typical wide-angle prime) suggests zoom

  • lens width (or narrowness) suggests it's not a f/2.8 lens

  • buttons on side (I think those are buttons) indicate AF-S and VR on/off switches

How long is the zoom? What clues are there about the camera body? Looks like the body has an on-board flash.

OK, here's my guess: 28-300 FX lens with VR, Nikon's FX version of the 18-200/VR. And a mid-market FX body to complete the kit for the D90/D300s class of customers.

What do I win if I guess right, Drew?
