Seems we will see an announcement of three new Nikkor lenses soon:

AF-S 28/1.4E (likely expensive)

AF-P 10-20/4.5-5.6G VR (cheap, for a WA)

AF-S 8-15/3.5-4.5E ED fisheye

Prices to be found here: https://nikonrumors....ed-online.aspx/

 

It's hard to ask more than "So what?"  -_-

 

2100 $ for a boring 28 mm?

The base of Nikkor lens buyers all will buy it, no doubt. But not aimed at growth....

 The 28mm lens will probably be fine......but man that price tag is way too excruciatingly boring!  :wacko:

 

 

At least Nikon is trying a little with the 10-20mm with VR!.........by undercutting the Tamron 10-24mm G2 VC!

Oh, I thought by overcutting the Canon...

 Do you mean the 10-18mm recent lens?

Yeah, the one introduced in 2014.

Well, which super-exciting lenses have we seen in recent years?
- the gang of 150-600mm FF lenses
- the Leica 100-400mm
- some STFs
- the Canon 11-24mm
As for the rest ... all evolutions but no revolutions.

So business as usual.

Just as predicted. But I have a feeling that two of these lenses have stopped just short of being carbon copies of the two corresponding Canon units...

I would add

- Zeiss Loxia 21/2.8 (small & super sharp)

- Voigtlaender 10/5.6 (small & super wide)

 

Also the Sigma ART series as the transformation of 3rd party moving towards the high end.

Most every Sigma Art lens has been a revelation for some reason or another, especially...

18-35/1.8 - first f/1.8 zoom for APS-C;

24-35/2 - first f/2 zoom for FF;

50-100/1.8 - first f/1.8 telezoom zoom for APS-C;

20/1.4, 14/1.8 - first of a kind in their respective FLs;

 

Apart from these lenses with unique stats, we have some other contenders:

85/1.4 - the first lens to give the 5DSR a run for its money in a Photozone test;

50/1.4 - the beacon for every modern 50, one that destroyed most lenses in its class and did not break the bank;

 

et cetera...

Rover, the 135/1.8 Art really deserves to be mentioned in your list  ;) Outstanding and a bit less bulky than the 85/1.4 Art. As well the 12-24/4 Art which is directly competing to Nikon's 14-24. For less money less flares...

 

Depending on Klaus' range of "past years", the Zeiss Otii should also be mentioned.

 

I'd rather say, there have been so many outstanding lenses from nearly all manufacturers - some more, some only more money for not much more - that these Nikon lenses simply fail to impress.

A friend of mine has it in Leica mount, found it vignetting quite extreme.
As for me I think among the newly added lenses we must mention canon 18-135, an excellent bargain for size, zoom range, image quality and price, IMHO this lens has the best value for money paid.
Canon EFM 35 mm macro with integration of LED light
Samyang 8mm f3.5 a very capable fisheye at very low price.
It's not about the extreme capacity only but also bringing good quality photography to everyone

The shots wide open of 28mm look good, but then we have 28mm 1.8g that is very good already.

No MTF yet?

On more thing: this current release of lenses shows that Nikon have no plans to take a stab at mirror-less market.

I don't see the link. If Nikon is planning a new mirrorless platform, it will not be iinstead of FF DSLR platform.

One of lenses is DX.
I was expecting them to release something similar to Canon M right before the summer.

Well, they still might. But that doesn't mean they have to abandon their key products.

Actually, that DX wideangle looks very tempting, at least for a light weight DX travel setup.

The internals show some inspiration from the Canon too, it looks like:

Nice UWA for Nikon APS-C shooters, indeed.

 

The 28mm f1.4 will chip away even more at the price of the manual focus 28mm f1.4.
