18mm 1.8 for FX

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.

Nikon had a patent for a 18mm 1.8 about a year ago, also a 20 1.8 I think. It would be a big lens and f/2 would be fine if necessary, but it would be glorious for night-scapes.
