Interesting, but I am not interested. i am a DX person, but want the 80-400VR updated more than anything.

Re: 3 new pro lenses leaked

I wonder why the 10-24 zooms the wrong way ?

Re: 3 new pro lenses leaked

Just my personal feeling

2nd one looks like a 14 2.8 and 3rd looks one looks like a 17-35 +12-24 combination.

Good Start

If true, it's a good start, and will make several people happy. They do need to add updates in the 85 and 135 focal range as well as something less expensive at the 200 (like an f/2.8 VR @ about $850). A less expensive 400 f/5.6 for birders would be very welcome as well--even at @ $1500 with VR.

Any idea on release date?

Re: 3 new pro lenses leaked

That middle one looks like it won't be taking any filters, so even if it's rectilinear, I'm betting it won't be popular with the landscape photography crowd.

The one on the right throws this whole 'leak' into fake territory with those zoom numbers in the reverse order for Nikon.

Oh well, we shall see.

Excellent

I'm sold on the 50/1.2. I'm loving that focal length again on FX.

Re: Excellent

These are photoshopped. The zoom is a give away. They may as well be crayon sketches.

Re: 3 new pro lenses leaked

Sorry but, those don't even look close to real.

Small image is a hint of fakery, but also they all look funny. Why is the 50 so huge? It has no need for that, if they want a 77mm filter ring on it, they can just get there buy giving it a lot of built in hood.

The 24mm has a front element way to curved. Just look at the Canon to get an idea of what would be expected. The rumored 1.4/24 ZA doesn't come close to that either. It looks like someone stole parts from the fisheye or 14-24 for that.

The last one just looks too dumb. And sounds downright silly. That would be one expensive lens. Just buy yourself a D3 and save yourself the trouble. Nikon should go for a 4/10-24DX with really good quality if they feel like doing something else in the DX zoom range there.

Nikon very well is working on these kind of lenses (the first 2), but I have a hard time beliving this is what they will look like.

Either an updated 80-400 or a 300 F4 VR

While I do see the need for some AFS wide to normal primes. I am with the camp that is longing for an update to the 80-400 and/or the 300F4.

Re: 3 new pro lenses leaked

Unfortunately theses are fakes to me.

1° there is no "optical" reason to build a 24mm f2.8 with a such front "bulb" glass element... this part of image could be taken from the 14mm 2.8

2° the supposed 50mm and the 24mm have the same aperture written on barel 2.8?

3° The 10-24 DX has exactly the same barel (part) pixel to pixel that the AFS 17-35 on Nikon website.

4° On the 50mm and the 10-24 there is a slighrt light shadow wrong "photoshop retouch" at one border.

Otherwise, if one day a 10-24 and a 50 1.2 will came out for real.. I will run to purchase it !

Re: 3 new pro lenses leaked

Check out the Tokina site. This supposed Nikon zoom is a Tokina 11-16 with different patterns on the focussing and zoom rings
