Will there be announced any new lenses before the summer? Any planned events? Any rumored lenses?

My wish list ....

I am praying (ok not really but you get the idea) for the following, in order:

1. new 16-35 f2.8 AFS N VRIII to replace the 17-35 (the 15 year old 17-35 is rumored to have been recently discontinued - Nikon submitted a revised patent last year for the 16-35 new lens design).

2. revised 24-70 f2.8 AFS N with VRIII (Thom Hogan indicates this is likely this year for whatever that is worth ...)

3. revised 70-200 f2.8 AFS N VRIII (hopefully with less or no focus shifting at close distance) - unlikely release but would be nice to have VRIII with f2.8 - Nikon could retain the lens element design and simply add VRIII as they have done on the past with the 300 f2.8, for instance - which wouldn't address the focus shift issue however...

4. revised 200mm f4 (or faster) Micro with VRIII - the current very old model, while great, needs updating with Nano and VR

5. revised 24mm f2.8 TS - to compete with the Canon 17mm TS

These releases would IMHO make Nikon much more competitive with Canon and address the most glaring holes in the current lineup.
