Nikon seriously needs video lenses now

Man, VR on video is horrible. Jerky VR snaps everywhere. Disable it, and you have to use an awkward body stabilizer.

Nikon needs to update their VR for smoother video-centric stabilization. VRIII perhaps.

Additionally, a smooth power-zoom and smooth auto-focus would be helpful.

A silent mode would also be helpful as well. AF-S focusing is really loud and with lots of zip-zip annoying sounds.

With Nikon's Video focus these days, they definitely need to figure to a complete video solution that includes lenses, recording, monitoring, and lighting. I'm surprised they haven't done it already, since they did invent dSLR video when they introduced the D90.
