Re: A 16mm f2.8 DX lens,... I wish

I left Nikon last month for this reason.  I held on for mirorless hoping they would bring our a series of small 2.8 primes with what ever the mount.   My first Nikon was a D40, bought in 2006.
I had the Tokina 11-16 and it excellent but also a tank.   There wasn't really any small affordable lenses between 15 - 35.   I still have my D40 and the 35 F1.8G, along with some manual focus Series E lenses, so hopefully I can still post here.
I really think they are missing such an opportunity.  A small set of F2.8 primes would (I think) help sell a lot of DX camera but also still leave a big step up to Full Frame and the increased revenue that would bring from people who wanted bigger sensors / brighter lenses etc
