Re: 20-50mm f/2.8

Don't think anyone has mentioned this before, but why not a 20-50mm f2.8? I'd love to see that. 20mm is ultra-wide enough for most situations, and get to normal. With only a 2.5x soon range, they should be able to make it sharp and fast.

Of course this will never happen because it would cut into people getting their 'trinity' zooms. But since you asked, that's what I would like..

I also think a lens like that would be a great idea. 20mm FF equivalent should be plenty wide, and give the extra wide angle kick when needed. I think f/2.8 through the range might make it rather large and expensive though. I shoot DX myself and own a 12-24mm which is 18-36mm on full frame. The DX equivalent of your suggestion would be something like 14-35mm f/2.8. I'd actually be even happirer with f/2.8-4 to have a more compact lens.
