This may indicate a refresh is on the cards.........

These were my recommendations:

Extend the range to 12-24

Improve the T stop

Improve the flare

Add a chip for in body distortion correction

My recommendation to them would be to redesign the 14mm f2.8 and 20mm f2.8 in MF editions with real DOF scales on them and infinity lock, apply nano to reduce flare further (it's miles better that the stupid zoom anyway) and redesign the hoods on both... CPU so that there would be no need to access non-cpu data would be nice too... If they would then add some more new AI-S with CPU... 24mm f2, 28mm f1.8 & 35mm f1.7... that would be a dream..! As for the zoom... I wouldn't care much! ...Sold it 6 months ago and never looked back!


That sounds like the Zeiss zf2 line: 15/2.8; 21/2.8; 25/2; 28/2; 35/1.4 or 35/2 - all MF, all with CPU and hard infinity stops and DOF markings.

What was the last MF lens Nikon released - the PC-E 85?

Just get the Zeiss - they already produce exactly what you want.
