Re: Any interest in a line of Prime Landscape lenses?

Working on my set of FX landscape primes.  So far:

16/3.5 AI - Nikon needs to re-make this lens with the same optical formula

20/2.8D - This lens needs to be tweaked by Nikon to improve those corners, but not at the expense of making it huge

50/1.8G or 45/2.8 AI-P - Stopped down they are all you could ask for really

90/3.5 CV - Excellent even wide open and very compact

180/4 CV - Working on getting this one, but they are not common

400/5.6 ED AI - Excellent

Nikon needs:

- A new fisheye worthy of the D800(E)

- 20/2.8G with much improved corners wide open and excellent by f/5.6

- 24/2G with great IQ across the frame by f/2.8

- 200/4 that's not huge in size or cost

- 400/5.6 ED-IF AFS VR that's also not huge in size/weight or cost

- John
