Why do we need this blog? (new 2008 AF-S lenses rumor)


Here is why: I need a fix length, wide angle lens for low light pictures. I want to be up-to-date and I want to buy and AF-S lens.
Currently my best option from Nikon is AF-S Micro- NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED which is designed for mainly for macro photography. I can also get the Sigma 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM, but we are all Nikoners, right? Here is where the rumor comes handy: several sites report that Nikon will introduce the following lenses this year: AF-S 28mm f/1.4 AF-S 50mm f/1.4 AF-S 85mm f/1.4 Well, if you ask me this makes sense. Here is the current line up of Nikon fix length lenses: AF-S Micro- NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED AF-S VR Micro- NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED AF-S VR NIKKOR 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G IF-ED AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4D IF-ED AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4G ED VR AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4G ED VR What's missing here? If you are the Director of Product Management in Nikon, what would you push for in order to complete your AF-S line? Did I mention that AF-S line will be the future of Nikon lenses? So, I will sit tight and wait.  Now, price is a different subject and the Sigma lens still has some punch there. How much do you think AF-S 28mm f/1.4 will cost? $899? Maybe more?
