Re: Nikon 14-24 refresh?

"I'd much rather Nikon spent the time on producing a world class 20mm AF lens that can compete with the Zeiss 21 distagon than attempting to upgrade the 14-24. Or re-do the 17-35 with no VR bullcrap, add nano coating, and redo that design to improve the optics."

I agree 100%. I just sold the Nikkor 20mm; and am looking at the Zeiss 21mm as a complement to my Nikkor 24-70. Nikon's 20mm f/2.8 is now a 19 year-old design that doesn't meet the D800 image resolution ability; while the 17-35mm design is pushing 7 years old. Since I rarely shoot at f/2.8, I wouldn't even care if they went to f/4 to keep the size and price down.
