I really like the idea of a high resolution/high'ish speed camera in a pro body.

But what bothers me is the ever widening lead in Canon lenses. For the moment I'm happy with Nikon sensors/bodies, but not with their glacially slow lens development. If Canon close the sensor performance gap, for me, it's game over Nikon.

Thom's nicely summarized my concerns regarding lenses today...

Yeah, Thom's a little upset with Nikon. It started a little over a year ago. But he is correct, Nikon needs to crank out some more lenses. That said, lets see what excellent glass is available that is relatively new:

1- 24mm f1.4 . . . excellent and new

2- 28mm f1.4 . . . excellent and new

3- 35mm f1.4 . . . excellent and new. Sigma or Nikon. Sigma wins this one!

4- 50mm f1.4 or f1.8 . . . I believe the 1.8 to be sharper and a better bargain

5- 85mm f1.4G . . . excellent and new

6- 70-200 f4 . . . excellent and new

7- 2 new PC lenses

8- A monster 800mm f5.6 tele

9- New zoom, 18-35

10 Fairly recent 16-35 f4

11- And many that are only 2-3 years old, like the 200mm f2

I am sure I have left out someone's favorite, but this is an awful lot of relatively new glass. Now if dpreview could just review a few more!!!
