Re: D800/E Lenses

yes of course the Zeiss is already available with both 18 and 21mm versions but manual focus. I guess with the D800 the focus will need to be extremely well done. I played with a Mamiya PhaseOne P45+ 40 million pixels recently and got difficulty to focus with the 28mm. But the focus system from the PhaseOne is nothing compare to the Nikon Auto Focus system !!!!

I got currently a D300 with already 24-70mm f2.8 FX and the 12-24mm DX to replace. I am doing a lot of photos at 12mm DX. As a landscape photographer in the alps, the weight is really very important especially when backpacking and I can't afford the 14-24mm too heavy and no filter. if we can get a refresh from the 17-35mm this could be also attractive...

I guess these new wide angle Nikon lenses will support the greatest D800E capability. I am planning to go Island in Summer, not sure they will be available at this time...
