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.

However, if they want to deliver same FOV as one gets on FX at 24mm, that would mean 16mm 1.4 for DX. A Whole nother matter. Even a DX 16/1.8 would be as exciting as the DX 35/1.8.

The price difference between 1.8 and 1.4 is huge. 24mm is 24 mm does not mater FX or DX. A 16mm 1.4 FX and a 16mm 1.4 DX will be very close in price.

Sorry that I was not clear enough. My comments were not on the price, just on the fact that to me a DX 16/1.4 would be more interesting than a 24/1.4. But then that's me

Some cameras, some lenses, some computers

I think we can expect Samyang (who are according to a rumour going to start making AF lenses) and Sigma to take up the slack with some nice DX primes.
