Re: Thoughts on Thom's recent writings

Thom's ranting seems to have aggravated after Photokina. I think what's bugging him is resentment from having no influence with Nikon. With regard to the DX rant, the reason why there are few DX primes is because there is no DX mount. DX lenses are lenses for the FX mount. So there is little point having dedicated DX primes - the size advantage would be minimal. Compare the 35/1.8 DX with the 50/1.8 FX. They are the same size.
