Nikon 20-35mm f/2.8 D AFYes they are zooms not primes but is that big issue?
And secondly, it is an issue, because I rarely use zooms for anything. It just ain´t my thing.
And thirdly, this was about what Canon has and what Nikon has not.
And there really should be a G series 20mm prime.
they have probably been taking to KR who seems hate Gelded lenses
Really this falls into DX prime land as well - 18=28dx, 20=30dx, 24=36dx. Sure they land into big FX land, but at least they could be used on the 3xxx/5xxx line.
@sevencrossing - the old primes and especially zooms just don't stand up to the new systems real well. My Tokina 16-28 is sharper than the 18,20,24 primes. Actually my old AFD 17mm F3.5 Tokina is better than either the 18 or 20mm primes I have tried. (I will add a disclaimer they were used lenses and not sure of the kind of use.)
