Could Nikon possibly have made to order lenses?
Like Warner Brother's allows a lot of their classic VHS movies to be made to order on DVD/Blu-Ray.
I mean like what if you wanted a NEW 80-200mm AF-S or some exotic lens like a 1200-1700mm.
I mean they'd cost a lot but I figure professionals would be willing to pay.
Only problems I see is they are already lagging on meeting the demand of their products, so manufacturing and retooling for old designs might be an issue.
