It's the wish-list time of year again, and rather than resurect an old thread I'll start a new one.

What's the one lens you most wish Nikon would introduce? Realistically. Or not realistically, if you prefer.

For me, it would be a 70mm f/1.8 prime (or possibly an f/2 macro). I shoot DX, so it would be a "105mm FX equivalent," and I wouldn't be bothered if Nikon made it as a DX lens, rather than FX.

I already have a 50mm f/1.8D, and I could get an 85mm f/1.8 if I wanted - but I'd like something in-between those two focal lengths.

Something like this ?

or maybe this ?

Pentax indeed has some hijghly desirable DA lenses, both zooms and primes, that can cause Nikon DX users some envy. I think the newly announced Pentax compact zoom looks particularly attractive:

A Nikon ditto of that one would be highly tempting - wouldn't mind it starting a bit wider though, at least 18mm : 16-32 f/2.8-4 would be perfect.
