Many of us pick certain lenses for various reasons. I would love to see "G" series, Nano Coated, Silent Wave Motor versions of the following lenses that I would love to add to my current lenses, but I don't have faith in Nikon to either update or bring back any of them any time soon.

● Fisheye-Nikkor 6mm f/2.8s
● Nikon 58mm f/1.2 Noct-NIKKOR
● Nikon AF DC-NIKKOR 135mm f/2D
● Zoom-Nikkor 1200-1700mm f/5.6-8P IF-ED
||COOLPIX 5000|●|D70|●|D700|●|D810|●|AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED|●|AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D|●|AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D|●|AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G|●|AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D|●|AF-S Micro Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G ED|●|AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G IF-ED (Silver)|●|AF-S Teleconverter TC-20E III|●|PB-6 Bellows|●|EL-NIKKOR 50mm f/2.8||

    ● Nikon 58mm f/1.2 Noct-NIKKOR
    An AF version is not possible, for F1.2 lenses, with the F mount. Something to do with space issues and the mirror.
    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    Re: Updating of Nikkor lenses....

    ● Fisheye-Nikkor 6mm f/2.8s..... I have such nice results from my modified 10.5mm f/2.8.....maybe new coatings, the "F" added

    ● Nikon 58mm f/1.2 Noct-NIKKOR....gosh with the Sigma, I cannot see a need for this one, but...

    ● Nikon AF DC-NIKKOR 135mm f/2D.....Now, this could be done with VR and fluorite coatings, making a lens which rivals the Zeiss Apo Sonnar T* 2/135, and I would jump on this.

    ● Zoom-Nikkor 1200-1700mm f/5.6-8P IF-ED......plus two Sherpas to carry it.... :-*

    I put the Nikon 58mm f/1.2 Noct-NIKKOR on my list because it had special coatings for night time/astro photography. I haven't seen a lens with coatings for night time/astro photography since then.

    I guess the next question for a lens like that is, I am going to assume that Nikon will never change their mount and make it larger? It will be a painful change since good glass is so expensive, but at some point it needs to happen.

    Yes an updated 135 DC would be nice. And that 6mm f/2.8s... :-)

    Errr, not quite. There are a few exotic lenses that will interfere with the mirror (6mm fisheye), but it has nothing to do with being f/1.2. There are two reasons nikon hasn't made an AF-S 1.2 lens. The most scientific is that due to the lack of offset micro-lenses on the sensor the extreme angle that the light falls from a 1.2 causes significant vignetting. (The coolpix A being the notable exception)

    The other being that the PDAF tolerances on a DSLR will not give enough accuracy for good hit rates at the shallow DoF that 1.2 has.
    Clearance-wise there is no issue with the F mount.

    I would like to see the "400 fluorite treatment" on the 200 f/2.

    Perhaps VR on the 14-24 and 24-70 might just help in certain circumstances

    I think your list sums it up.... Id also like to see the 8mm f/2.8 repackaged and sold and Im still waiting for my 10mm aspherical fx they patented (Ive given up on the 28-200mm f/2.8). An update to the 45mm pancake would be nice too. They have done a really good job cleaning up their current lens lineup.

    I just figured out how to edit, normally the edit option is at the bottom of the post, I have never seen them above the post before.

    I'd like to see the Nikkor 70-180mm Macro be updated. It's useful to be able to zoom in and out on fast moving bugs.

    I'd also like to see the 200mm Micro be updated. Not because I want one, because I just want to see how expensive it might be. :D

    There are a couple of new lens I would love to see but that is off topic. LoL

    Oh my, what a mistake. Yea I figured you know I meant a 24-70mm F2.8.
    Can you image how big a 24-700mm lens would be and the weight. Would have to hire a full time helper to drag the lens around. That sounds like a tripod lens and it would cost more than my 2nd car.

    The 17-55 and 24-70. Although It probably wouldn't matter for me. I am content with what I have.
    D5200, D5000, S31, 18-55 VR, 17-55 F2.8, 35 F1.8G, 105 F2.8 VR, 300 F4 AF-S (Previously owned 18-200 VRI, Tokina 12-24 F4 II)

    ● Zoom-Nikkor 1200-1700mm f/5.6-8P IF-ED......plus two Sherpas to carry it.... :-*
    probably just 1 sherpa I am sure the will have PF in it. the original is 16 kg and 888 mm. the new version could be half that given the new design capabilities and PF.
    Moments of Light - D610 D7K S5pro 70-200f4 18-200 150f2.8 12-24 18-70 35-70f2.8 : C&C very welcome!

    Are you suggesting I lay off one of my Sherpas? ;)

    I think he's volunteering. I would too if they make that lens!
  • WestEndFotoWestEndFoto Posts: 3,744Member
    I would not want to spend all that money on a zoom. Two or three prime superteles on D810s would have better IQ, be lighter and cheaper, and could probably be carried by one sherpa.

    I am waiting for the 200mm f/2 upgraded with the fluorite elements and fluorine coating. Hopefully this year?
    Occasionally a decent image ...
