Re: Not interested

Its currently very hard to make zooms  with these specs that would be practical. My Sigma 50-100 f1.8 is a heavy beast, ad not the most ergonomic for hand holding, It also lacks features like OS...presumably to keep the lens under a certain size. Granted with in body VR this will not be an issue.

Zooms are supposed to offer convenience at the expense of speed, and a slight drop in IQ. But my Sigma tends to get left behind due to bulk, ergonomics and limited range.

Nikon used to make a 75-150 f3.5E lens that was very popular because of its IQ and great portability. IMHO Nikon should focus on light sharp, portable, constant aperture f2.8/f3.5/f4 zooms  and primes, especially in the neglected DX  segment.
