Interesting: I'd have swapped the "realistically" and "not realistically" tags. I had a go-around a while back about whether a 35-70 f/1.8 DX could be made at a practical size and cost. The other guy thought it couldn't, and I felt that it could - but I might have been wrong.

OTOH, the existence of the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DX shows that an 18mm f/1.8 DX prime is possible, the existence of the various 35mm f/1.4 FX lenses show that a 35mm f/1.4 DX is possible, and the existence of the various 50mm and 85mm f/1.4 and f/1.8 lenses strongly suggest that a 70mm f/1.8 DX is possible, all at something resembling a reasonable price, size, and weight.
