New Nikon lenses including 16-80/2.8-4.0 DX
Quote:Yeah, pretty similar construction overall (except the layout of the seven elements towards the rear). But fast APS-C zooms have always been pretty expensive, think the 17-55. The 24-120 didn't seem that great on the long end per Markus's review anyways.
A constant aperture lens is a bit more expensive to design.

Weight is to a certain extent a good measure for price. The Canon 17-55mm f2.8 weighs 645 grams. The Nikkor 17-55mm f2.8 weighs 755 grams. With 480 grams the new lens is a light weight in comparison...
