Good news. However, until I see a commitment from Nikon to a true DX lens line I still won't bite.

If the only DX lenses they are gonna make are 18-XXX zooms then what is the point...

You will be waiting a long time. A DX 24mm 1.4 would cost very close to FX 24mm 1.4. Same with all the other focal lengths.

Everything happens for a reason. #1 reason: poor planning

Ridiculous. That seemed to be the going line until Sigma dropped the amazing 18-35 1.8 for $799 and Nikon was left sitting there looking stupid.

If Sigma can make the stellar 18-35 1.8 for $799 surely Nikon can make a single focal length DX prime for less money.

If they can't they are going to have issues...
