I enjoy my 35mm f/1.8 lens for DX. It is similar to a 50mm on a full frame. How about a DX prime lens by Nikon that is wide angle (24-28mm equivalent)with a fast aperture? Coming?

Closest you will come to the quality of a DX prime would probably be the Sigma 18-35 F1.8

The 18-35 is an interesting lens, no doubt. One thing about it though... it's friggen huge and heavy. Which is kind of anti-primeish.

Check out the Samyang 16mm f/2 MF lens, the Nikon version is available with a metering chip as well. It's still not light at 615g, the Nikon 14mm f/2.8 is only slightly heavier at 670g.
