More rumors on the two upcoming Nikon lenses

More info regarding the new Nikon lenses that might be announced with the D800:

  • The new DX lens will be replacing one of the current superzooms (not a pro-level lens).
  • The FX lens will be an update to one of the current AF-D prime lenses and probably will not be wide angle. If this is correct, the new lens should replace one of the following (see all 74 current Nikkor lenses here):
    • AF DC-Nikkor 135mm f/2D ($1329)
    • AF Nikkor 180mm f/2.8D IF-ED ($879)
    • AF Micro-Nikkor 200mm f/4D IF-ED ($1699)
    • AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D ($459)
    • AF DC-Nikkor 105mm f/2D ($1069) – see this patent

[NR] probability rating: 60%, just not enough information in order to bump the probability.
