This lens really excites me. I don't know if Nikon would feel they are sabotaging their own sales, but if this lens is sharper than the 16-35, this could be an extremely desirable lens. Small for travel, doesn't need to be too fast, I will be watching this one closely...

There's a lack of excitement for the excellent new 70-200 f/4G ED VR, even after Photozone have it the coveted "Highly Recommended" in it review of it a couple of days ago.

High prices are one thing, but if Nikon users, who have been begging for a 70-200 f4 like the Canon version for years, aren't getting pumped up about this new telephoto zoom, they probably aren't going to be buzzing too much about a variable aperture UWA zoom.

I'm extremely excited about the new 18-35, as my only wide at present is the not-so-wide, but excellent 28 1.8G.  And it this lens performs well, I will most certainly buy it, unless I get a windfall and get the 16-35 f4 VR or 14-24 2.8 instead.  But since that's not too likely, I'm happy Nikon decided to make something for everybody.
